Cable TV

We've had cable for almost one week and the jury is still out with the verdict.

Pro: it only costs $24.95 for one year....savings $20 + over Dish.
Con: I can't figure out the channels. I need a channel poster.

Pro: We got DVR back.
Con: I can't figure out the channels in order to record.

Pro: Animal Planet, my daughter prefers this to cartoons. I like it too!
Con: I can't delete the Spanish channels or shopping channels like with DISH.

Pro: We now have 1 remote for each room. We permanently lost one remote with DISH.
Con: I can't figure the buttons on the remote without having the light on.

Pro: I'll get to record the Superbowl and review commercials.
Con: I'll have to figure out how to record.

Overall it was a great decision for us to get Cable over DISH. We've got a few more channels and I really do prefer my daughter to watch shows on Animal Planet than on ToonDisney. She isn't brainwashed with the latest toys.

Yes! Much better to be watching animal plant. Try to get her to tune into the history channel and when she starts school she'll be set!

"..$24.95 for one year"

You Texas people get the best deals. $1 gas, 30 cent steaks and now SAT/TV for only $2/month...

( I hope you really meant $25/month for a year....)

Why don't you give the remote and other programing stuff to your daughter and she can figure it out.

Reply to wiccachicky: It's just cool to want to watch something that she likes. Good quality indoor time.

Reply to kauaimark: That's $24.95 plus tax per month, not for the whole year. Still a good deal. Hey, chicken is $1.69 a pound for breast meat!
