When it rains does the cable go out?



well i have direct tv and it sucks when it rains or heavy winds the signal goes out or when a airplane passes by ( i live in los angeles like 20min from lax) but my friend has comcast so much better they pay like 80 bucks a month in get everthing from hbo, starts, in cinema. and they get cable internet which is way fasters ( depends were you live ). with direct tv i pay 70 bucks a month with only hbo but i have all the other channels. what i like about direct tv is that you get the east coast and west coast channels. like lets say fox i could watch the advace channels.
 
but yea comcast is way better

Then your equipment isn't installed properly.
 
I've had satellite for years and only had one signal drop due to a very bad storm.
 
But I've had cable go out with strong winds, rain, even just randomly. Cable just........ sucks. It's more expensive, the image quality is inferior, you have to deal with analog channels which look worse than the already overly compressed digital channels, the customer support sucks, etc. etc.
 
DirecTV is better in every way.

Then yours isn't installed right either Smiley Tongue We've had some pretty terrible/awesome thunderstorms here, heavy snow, heavy rain.. no signal loss at all. Just once with Primestar almost 10 years ago.

Nope. Because your equipment isn't installed right, and because you are a lakers fan.
