A few days ago I was in son's bedroom packing and he has a tv in there not hooked to our cable. Have always gotten good reception in there and been able to get about 20 channels. Not any more. Now all you get is a flashing ad saying if you want to watch tv, you have to call your cable company and have them bring you a digital box. LOL Wow, I remember the days when television was "free" to watch. Now its all a money maker for the cable companies.
Yeah, its a real racket for sure! But there's a new kind of box that is supposed to allow you to get a whole bunch of channels but I'm afraid to try it! I have directv and have the basic pkg. They were going to drop our Fox43 programming, and did for a few days. I found we have that programming back now and I'm real happy about that cuz I was goign to drop them. I think probably there was a loud protest about that! I protested! I like to watch Fox 43, especially the 10:00 news. One of these days I'll get tv over the net, I think. Anyone know anything about FIOS?

My mom has fios I think, she gets her phone and tv through Verizon. I do know its more than she should be paying though. I think she said her bill was like $160 a month.
Bon, I have a TV with a converter box and rabbit ears. I can get lots of channels on it. We have cable. I bought an adapter and ran it from the first TV to the one in the kitchen and the one in DGS's bedroom.
We have a antenna, two converter boxes and get 27 channels....they're crystal clear and FREE :-)
We have cable, internet service. Have 3 TVs and one in livingroom has HD box for HD programming. Our cost is $130 month and we get many channels on our set. We are on the next to lowest level of basic programming and no extra stuff like HBO or movie channels, just cable but get Fox, CNN, and local news channels and many good programs.
It is either that or dish....can't get anything here with antenna,so you pay for your pleasure if you want TV.
Let every day be a good day!
