At my parents house we had Direct TV in the basement so I almost never watched it, however I did try to make a point to watch south park, jack ass, crank yankers, trigger happy TV.

Now that I'm living on my own and have my own TV with cable that's not 3 stories down. theres next to nothing on.

MTV sucks total ass
Comedy Central plays nothing but blue collored crap.

bah thankfully they still have south park even tho I never see to catch it.

Ya know... Family guy is on... And thats all that matters... :)

When I moved in, i wanted DISH Network... BAD... $35/mo for 120+ channels, plus 40 music channels, 2 receivers, DVR, EVERYTHING... BUT... DAMN TREES IN THE WAY!!!

So I have local cable... $38/mo for NON DIGITAL cable, 1 TV with about 40 channels, and about 7-10 are spanish or public access... What a ripoff... :(

Consider yourself lucky then... Comcast is 99.69 for regular cable and internet.

129ish or so for digital and internet... I used to have digital, back when I was just delivering I made more than enough money to live on. Odd how a full time job paid less than a minimum wage job.

I pay $68 for cable internet and the normal 100 or so cable channels


That is the bill after everything is added in tax and such.

eh, im not much of a tv watcher but its cheaper to get the minimum cable (30 channels) and cable internet than to get just cable internet. But the $10 tv plan actually isnt that bad. I get cspan1 and 2 (book tv on weekends is always interesting), azn tv (anime sometimes), and the inspiration channel (unintentional comedy gold).

I think all told for internet and really basic cable (through comcast) we're paying like ~60 monthly.

DVD burner and Blockbuster movie pass. That's all you need.

I never watch tv, I just watch my collection of movies and tv series whenever I feel like it.

Meaning what? It's about 130ish USD??

I'm not getting ripped... you're paying exactly what I'd pay for that package if I still had it.

our dollar is higher then theres. 113 CND is like 80-90 US

And you were getting ripped off becuase that is the normal price.

comcast as with Im sure any other cable company always has some type of offer going.

I pay 6 dollars more for the normal cable package with MTV1/2 Comdey Central, TLC.... and cable internet then I would pay for just cable internet.

The normal rate is 62 for cable internet and 45 or so for the normal cable package. If you get them both together you can save 10 off the internet bill. If you call them and ask them to give you a reason to change service to them. they will give you the run down on special offers going on.

in my case I have everything but the movie/porn channels for a tad bit more then just the internet cost.

p.s it still doesnt matter becusae the TV still sucks. then again adult swimm isnt too bad when you watch old shows like family guy and stuff.

Ok so I did the exchage rate backwards. Paying 70-80 is still being ripped off. It sucks when Comcast has a monopoly. They can, and have raised rates for no other reason except because they can.

Comcast's offers suck. "sign up now and get TV for 39.99 for 6 months!" yay...

That's why I have a year of comcast cable WITH the internet and free modem rental for 68 bucks AFTER TAX that is cable internet, free modem, basic cable + the extra channels from golf, food tv, E, MTV1/2, VH1, TLC,... list goes on. 100+ channels.

Comcast around here always has some type of offer going. when my year is up Ill call them up and say either offer me a new special offer or Im cutting of my cable.

That's the way to do it right there. I went in to cancel my digital and the lady tried to offer me 10 dollars off if I'd keep it.... for 3 months. Up here they're just greedy and their deals suck.

I don't pay for Optimum Online cable internet.

I don't pay for iO/Interactive Optimum digital cable with all the premium channels with the exception of pay-per-view channels.


Total cost - $0.00 for the fastest connection around and best TV programming. :)

Comcast. Last bill was near 2XX because it wasn't paid the month before.

Comcast offers 19.99 (then it's 49.99) Cable Internet for the first 6 months + 49.99 for digital 800+ channels. Modern TV sucks, unless it\'s a cartoon or something I don't find intrest in it...I just watch it.
