Actually I'm not partial to either company... I was a Cablevision subscriber for the last 3 years but my roommate who owns the house that I rent a room in, switched us to Verizon in July (against my wishes due to the MSG HD business
)... I think Verizon has better standard definition picture quality.... I never had any gripes about the HD picture quality with CV, thought it was good... However, I would get channel blackouts with Cablevision and that was frustrating (not talking specific broadcast blackouts, but channels not working intermittently with just a black screen and no picture)... I think both companies have crappy Customer Service & Support (dealt with Verizon with other services before). Neither are very affordable after their temporary promotional price cuts...
The comment I made above was not because I'm partial to Verizon but because I get the impression that CV does pretty well in this area and that can equate to big profits when you have less operating expenses than a national provider... Seems like they have a good hold on the marketplace... I don't have any #'s to back that up but that was just the impression I got... Verizon is the new player (relatively) in the game and I think there's a big segment of households that don't switch simply because they stick with what they've had and have had over the years.... Their complacency benefits CV greatly....
