      How big is your TV?  I ask because some channels, like BBC 
America, have pretty bad compression going on.  The bigger the TV screen 
the more apparent it is.

      For me, the PQ for locals is bad.  It's quite apparent if you 
watch The Simpsons OTA vs. Dish.  The colors are all washed out.  For my 
parents, in the Bay Area, PQ is much better.

      I'm with Dish because to get the channels I want would cost me at 
least an extra $20/mo. over Comcast.

      If you want foreign language channels, your best bet is Dish 
Network.  They have the best lineup.
