I don't know that one is safer than the other.
Get rid of satellite/cable. Buy DVR to Pause-Rewind-Record live antenna HDTV.

Average Joe can figure out a way to eavesdrop on your traditional landline...so I think Ooma is more secure for that reason alone.

If my calls are routed over the Internet, how does Ooma ensure that my calls remain private and secure?

The Ooma system uses the latest security and data encryption technologies to securely deliver user calls. As a result, Ooma is as secure as a traditional landline.
