The world of cable TV has expanded tremendously over the last 30 years. You literally now have hundreds of television channels to choose from to watch your favorite programs. There seems to be a network for everything from reality shows to cooking to the paranormal.
Recently, all television became digital. This means antenna TVs which used to operate on the analog system can no longer be used. Owners of antenna TVs have to get digital converter boxes to be able to watch both cable channels and basic networks alike. These new boxes benefit people because you will no longer have to worry about frequency issues and signal disruptions.
You can receive your cable TV through a cable box or satellite dish. Which option is better for your family may depend on pricing and where you live. In some places where cable lines can not be run, getting a satellite dish on your roof may be your only option.
If you are looking for a good residential cable package, one way to get a cheaper price is to go for a full package that includes broadband Internet, cable and telephone service for one monthly rate. There are additional features available if you have an HD TV. Always be sure to ask what promotions are going on. You may be able to get channels such as HBO and Showtime free for a limited time.
If you are looking for cable service for a business, make sure you speak to a representative about business pricing. Business pricing often differs from residential service and you don't want to end up paying extra.
If you have a DVR receiver box you can record your favorite shows and watch them at any time. If you hate commercials, a DVR box may be a great fit for you.
