  •  I am ready to go back to a Rabbit ear antenna (7+ / 0-)

    That's all we had at home when I was a kid. Cost: $0/month

    Now basic cable from Comcast: $83/month.

    Is basic cable worth $1000 per year? Not to me.

    And I'm so glad the Gubmint forced us all to get HD TVs because Comcast now charges a premium for all its HD content. Corps win again thanks to their whores in congress.

    Yeah giving Comcast a monopoly will fix everything. NOT.

      we use to get HD TV. You have to pay extra to get HD TV on your HD TV with cable.  So the US was converted to HD TV, but no one said that people would end up paying more for it than they did for analog on cable, but that's how it is. Just another way to screw the little guy out of as much money as possible.
