on digital cable made me re-think the issue. We'd had expanded basic cable in our old house and that was fine, everything we wanted. But where we live now, the cable service is this A/B switch bullshit, meaning that we have to get up and flip a switch to see half of our channels. We were all set to get digital cable but couldn't be home for the guy to come out so we cancelled. And a good thing. I took a good look at the channel lineup, at what $62.85 a month would get us and it's all shit
But don't just take my word for it. Here's a sample:
BBC America (great, more sitcoms I don't understand)
Discovery Health (wow, 24 hours of surgery)
Insprirational Life Network (praise God)
Golf (sorry, Chris, I just can't watch it)
Need I say more? $62.85 for that? I think we're going with Direct TV where for $55 a month we get channels I want like ESPN Classic (I love that shit, it's all about NBA games from the 70's) and Lifetime Movie Network. But no matter how you cut it, it's still too damn much money to watch TV.
