I have to have basic cable at least, eventhough it is expensive. One day when I get BIG I am going digital so I can get all the better channels.

I have digital cable, with all the channels available, plus the cable internet. I don't know why I bother though. Everything I watch is on basic cable or basic digital. I should go to a different package and save some money for better things.

Heck, we ain't got nothin! We have a like next to homemade ghetto antennae (but if you want to watch a VHS you have to unplug the antennae to plug in the VCR hehehe ). We do get 5 channels though - NBC, ABC, CBS, UPN and PBS. So we get all the good ones. Although I do crave a movie channel

LOL! That's us too. Everything I watch is on regular TV (CBS, NBC, ABC or FOX) so cable is a waste of money for us. We're just fine with the bunny ears antennae (sp?).

We have Time Warner's basic cable. We had their digital channels for a while. But it was getting to expensive. I dropped all the movie channels and the digital box. Of course they always try talking you out of it. We don't go to the movies much. At 8$ a person times 3 of us. Bucket of popcorn candy and soda. There goes over 50$ on one movie. For less than that for basic cable I get cable for the whole month. Not including our internet access. With RoadRunner cable internet it's 94$ combined for basic cable and internet access. That's about 2 movies at the theater with snacks and soda for a family of three each month. Way cheaper and more for our money. I'd be lost without the cable tv. I like watching TV Land, Halmark and Food Channel besides some of the others.

We have basic cable ... we tried going w/out cable but had NO luck with an antennae here, all fuzz. So we got the cable (have cable internet and phone too so we get a pretty good rate on it all) and now I'm addicted to TLC and HGTV and the Food Network!

We also have Cox, but their basic expanded cable package with high speed internet. LOVE IT! DH would probably shrivel up into a ball and die if he couldn't get access to his Discovery channel (American Chopper, Monster House, Monster Garage) or TLC (Rides).

We have Directv. Though most of the channels I watch I could get with bunny ears but we have it. I think we are going to get rid of it after our year contract though. Its a waste of money sometimes.

We have cable tv. Just the bare basic cable. No pay movie channels or no digital box. I'm happy with just that. I figured how much 3 of us it cost to go to a movie. Figuring in tickets to the show, popcorn, soda and maybe candy. That's what my cable bill is for one month. I figure lets skip the theaters and keep the cable. As the price of a movie for 3 is one month of cable tv.
