And got cable. Yup, not just cable, but internet and phone as well. What drove me to this, well, it was a $42 basic home phone bill (I use a calling card at 2c per minute for Long Distance) and a one year offer for a triple package for $55, no install fee, and unlimited local and long distance phone.
I ported over my phone number, I like the one I have and I have had cable TV for just over a week. And I'm really wondering if it's worth it. I've gotten so used to NOT watching a lot of TV. I read, watch DVDs, etc. Before the switch to all digital TV I got about 10 stations (some digital, some not) after the switch only 2, I even lost some of the digitial stations I had. My house is located in a bit of a dead zone, I can't even get mobile phone reception where I am, I have to go about 1/4 mile away to get any bars. I guess I should consider myself lucky that I even had two TV stations.
Even though this is not my TV watching season, I thought I'd try it out. Except that I spent a lot of time channel surfing 70 some odd channels going Crud, nothing on TV. I did watch about 30 minutes of an Undateable Marathon and wondered why I did (BECAUSE IT WAS ON).
Oh well, I've already made a note for my 2011 things to do list to review the cable package and maybe get rid of it or reduce it when it comes up for renewal.
