After many years of searching and intense research, they have found a cable company that people don't hate.

It's interesting how well that mirrors the cable and phone markets in the UK.

we had Adelphia cable, which was pretty good - they got bought by Comcast, which is turning out to be "screw you, we're all you've got" cable service

there was some sort of scandal involving an Adelphia exec and a bunch of missing money that may have left them open for takeover :(

Oh if there was only another cable company in my area. I'm sure they'd suck too, but maybe, just maybe, some actual competition would lower prices.

the current bus-stop adverts for McFlurries feature the tag line:

'the pot at the end of the caramel rainbow'

this has been making me laugh on my way to work.

How much do you pay the cable company?

The Mad Monk
23-05-2007, 16:00:56
About $75 here in Kansas City, for 200+ video channels, God only knows how many audio channels, and every premium channel HBO, Cinemax and Showtime have between them.

Venom

You lucky bastard. With high speed internet I'm paying $125 for all the fancy digital cable with HD, but no premium channels.

Ours is about half Venom's, including the cable internet service, but I expect that'll change drastically over the next 6 months or so.

I have 25 or so included with my rent for cable (which I don't use). I then spend 55 or so for the best internet, this is for the bandwidth unlimited or whatever version... and I can get amazing download speeds.

I do split with my roommate, so it is cheaper for me individually. Well, if he ever pays me his share.
