How much is your cable bill?
Jan 08th, 2010, 10:51am
 
I am trying to figure out which company offers the best deal on cable tv. Can anybody tell me how much they pay for their cable provider?

I have satellite.
It's rediculously expensive!
But there wasn't much choice.

I am also running satellite. Two HD receivers with two DVRs, four TVs. Runs around $80.00 a month if we don`t get too carried away with PPV movies.
LD I have the local channels on my package, but I have seen a few local receiver antennae pop up in the area recently so evidently they are working.

When we first moved into our house at Tawakoni my wife said that the big tri-pole antenna on the side of our house was ugly and I should take it down.  Once I hooked up to it and saw the quality of picture we can receive for free from Dallas I let her know that the antenna would be staying put.  We can also point it towards Tyler and pick up channels from there.  Might come in handy if they ever black-out a cowboy game.  Wink

Believe it or not "young fella" it used to happen all the time back in the 80's and 90's.  (And we had to walk to school in the snow, up hill, both ways... yada yada)

Sure most all the stations are transmitted in HD these days.

That's cool. I didn't think hi def would make it this far. We're a fer piece out from Cedar Hill, and I know the signal has to be perfect or it won't show at all.
I'd like to get all the extra channels (8.1, 8.2 etc.)!
I'm a little downhill from you, and I tried to get reg def once (rooftop) and failed.

You have me encouraged on the possibility of just going with free HD, guess I may need to take the leap of faith and get the antenna.  I am in the Duck Cove area so a bit closer to Cedar Hill.

I've been tempted too, but just gave up.

Well, cable tv has up and left the Lake Tawakoni area...not enough subscribers. I can tell you from experience that Dish is cheaper than Directv. FWIW
