If you are in an area serviced by Cox Cable Fred Lynn Jersey , you are not without options for your television service. The following is a comparison of Cox and Dish Network, so it will be a little easier to see how they stack up against each other. Coverage Area Cox Communications, or Cox Cable is the third largest cable company in the United States, behind only Comcast and Time Warner. It is important to note that Dish Network boasts higher subscriber numbers than Cox overall and has made significant gains in Cox's largest coverage areas; Arizona, Nevada, Louisiana, California and Florida. Dish is on nearly equal footing in other Cox areas most notably Dustin Pedroia Jersey , Idaho, Iowa, Oklahoma, Kansas, Virginia and Nebraska. Like other "Big Cable" providers Cox has the ability to offer customers Internet and Phone service and spends a lot of their advertising efforts on triple play packages or bundles. Dish Network concentrates on providing the very best television value, price and technology to its customers. If you are a consumer in the market for more than just television service, Dish Network also has partnerships with satellite Internet David Ortiz Jersey , DSL and phone providers. The overwhelming quality of their television offerings makes it important that these are considered by customers falling into this category. Compare Cox and Dish Network Channel Packages Cox BasicExpanded cable has a price tag of $47.95 per month for Standard Digital, $52.95. Dish Network offers no less than three packages with more channels and lower prices. Dish Network's Classic Bronze has over 120-channels and is regularly $39.99 ($24.99 for the first year). Classic Silver has more than 220-channels and is regularly $52.99 - the same as Cox's expanded Digital tier, with significantly more channels. When you consider that you can get this package for ($37.99 for the first year, it's hard to see any value in Cox). Classic Gold from Dish Network adds even more value $62.99 regularly for more than 260-channels and is in promotion right now for $47.99 for the first year. For the cost of having one television in your home outfitted with Cox's Standard Digital Service $52.95, you can set up your home with Dish's Classic Bronze get over 120-channels in digital format, add more than 60-channels in High-Definition and get one TV set up with an HD-DVR and have digital picture and DVR on a second TV and still be at Cox's price for one TV with digital channels and no DVR service. DVR and HD Receivers: Dish Network's Advantage Where the comparison really begins to get unfair is Cox fees for additional digital boxes ($6.00 per month) DVRHD boxes ($12.00 per month) HD-DVR capable boxes ($18.00 per month) Dish Network by comparison charges $5.00 per month for additional receivers, $7.00 per month for additional HD receivers and $12.00 per month for additional HD-DVR receivers. It is also important to understand that Dish Network's technology advantages over Cox in terms of receivers allows Dish customers to operate two TV's with full programming and DVR capabilities while using just one receiver and saving cost. Dish HD vs Cox If you are in the market for HD programming you will be comparing Dish Network's industry leading 140-HD channels Clay Buchholz Jersey , to Cox Cable's 20-50 channels. Cox's HD availability will vary greatly depending on where you live. Cox will argue that there are no additional charges for HD with them, but given the disparity between Dish and Cox, I will gladly pay the additional $10.00 per month. Dish Network vs Cox: Conclusion When it comes to sports programming, both providers are pretty similar. The differences being, Dish Network carries the NFL Network Red Zone channel, Cox does not. Cox however, has MLB Extra Innings Carlton Fisk Jersey , Dish does not. The choice seems pretty clear when comparing the video services of both companies. Dish Network has significant advantages in the areas of cost, value, programming and technology. If on-demand services, you know, being able to watch what you pay for already, whenever you want, out-of-market baseball games Carl Yastrzemski Jersey , or bundled services (starting at $129.99) are your thing, than Cox may be the right choice for you. For everyone else it's clearly Dish Network. By: Frank BilottaIn what may seem like an odd concept, fild theatre performances are growing in popularity. When they were trialed at the Camden Fringe Festival they received an average of 500 viewers per ow. The ows prised of plays, dance and edy and reportedly 5-7% of people said they would be willing to pay for the privilege in future. So theatre producers are already seizing the oppurtunity to put recordings of their performances online, along with rehearsal footage and even 'trailers' for new plays. Here the similarities beeen theatre and film bee interchangeble in the plete lk of 'live' setting which is arguably why people watch plays not films. But the case study of the Camden Fringe tells a different story of people who are willing to see sothing new and unusual online. When sothing is fild 'live' it can be edited and saved for further viewings whilst still retaining its energy and spontaneity. Stand-up ics regularly film their performances with a few caras, edit it well and then put it to DVD with great suess. Other forms of performance may not transcend so well, especially more serious drama that requires a believbility that would be removed by the containnt of a screen. When viewers are used to seeing drama fild on-location then it may also seem flat in a theatre setting. Gauging by the popularity of recent ows such as Strictly Co Dancing and Glee! Bobby Doerr Jersey , the more glitzy and spectular forms of theatre may transfer better to the smaller screen. Musical theatre in particular would film well as it is a very visual dium providing treats for the eyes and ears as well as the soul. The reality of installing technical equipnt and requiring tors to wear mics may limit so smaller theatres' capability to produce these ows well.
