well, i'm shopping for power, water, and cable for the condo today... lol it's almost certain that i will be getting a new tv shortly after i move in. i can't take this 20" goldstar pos with no white contrast much longer... i can't even play gt4 on it cuz the main HOME menu is all white and its just one big blob/blur so, i e-mailed the cable company asking a few questions about the CableCard technolgy which most tv's are coming with now-a-days. so, wtf is the point then? i still have to run a set-top box if i want to use my service to the fullest... if you aren't familiar with on-demand... its basically a free movie service, where you can download any number a movies they are offering and start them at any time... kinda like having a dvr, but they are streamed in. so, not only will i get on-demand with EVERY digital package they offer, i will have to pay the 8.25 fee for the set top box... to use it... and then i need internet too.. so, its like 150 bucks a month any way you look at it. wtf. what are you guys doing for cable and internet???? but having on-demand will cut-back my dvd needs, as i can get movies all the time... i dunno. i'm all confused... so, i don't need to get 5... i think with 2 on the gold plan would be ok... but, whats a few bucks more for 3 more premium channels??
