Probably not the right forum.... But at my address I have three options for paid content. Comcast Cable Dish Network Direct TV Direct TV: The cheapest package to get like say ESPN is $31.95, I can get my regional fox sports for another $5 (Imporatnt for loval hockey coverage). $36.95 to watch TV???? Seems way to high to me. I think my limit is going to be about $25 per month at best. I was going to order it anyways, and they gave me some rediculously far off installation date. $49 install, free if I commit to 18 months!! Dish Network: $41.95, Only if I commit for a year. But this is to high for me, Heck that's equal to my electric bill. But they could install this week. Comcast $44.95 Extended basic, no digital, no premium channels. They have a basic package for $13.95 that doesn't anything at all I want. Next day install though. I am just amazed at what it costs to watch TV these days, I guess I am priced out of the market. I'll stick with OTA HDTV, it's free and generally of good quality. Are these prices inline with what people typically pay these days? Ok, Rant off. Thanks for reading.
