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.
