Television services cost too much
March 30, 2009 - Lisa Reed
The cost a single household has to pay for television service is outrageous. I live in the country, so relying on an antennae for service is not practical. And where we live, Niagara cable is not available. So my husband and I subscribe to a satellite service. We pay this company more than $50 a month to receive 150 plus channels. We really only watch about 10 of these channels plus local television. If we were to downgrade our package, it would still be about $50 a month. And we would not get the stations we actually watch, which include ESPN, History, National Geographic, E! Lifetime, Oxygen and WE. This company also just jacked up their rates, so we are paying a few more dollars a month for the same service. I’ve read editorials from Norway residents complaining about having to pay $100 a month for three services - phone, cable and Internet - with the new cable system. Considering we pay more than $50 a month for just cable, Norway residents are getting a deal. Also because of where we live, the type of service Norway residents have the option of will never be available to us. I guess if we want more than local television stations, we have to pay the price. That or only have one or two channels through a digital television set or a converter box, if it even works at our house.
