Also, when in the hell did it get so expensive to watch TV? And on on earth are there 666 channels but most of them are dedicated to bullshit programming that I'm pretty sure 80%+ of the population won't watch. However, to get that one channel that you do want to watch you have to choose a TV Package that includes 13 other channels that you will never turn on? WTF?
I remember back in the day when we had just a handful of channels but we were pretty damned happy to watch what we had. Hell, I remember having rabbit ears so that we could get more than 4 channels. Picking up signals through the air just to watch NBC and ABC and liking it.
This new age of millions of programs of pure unadulterated garbage that I don't want to watch but have to pay for sucks. I am fully reminded why, when left to my own devices, I have not had any type of TV service for the past decade or so. However, it's the other people who live here who enjoy watching.
So, as far as I see it I have 3 options.
I can go with Cox Cable.
I can go with Direct TV.
I can go with Dish Network.
Any other options that might exist have already been ruled out.
Also of note is that for various reasons I currently do not qualify for any special plans or discounts on any of these networks.
I have read bad and good on every single one of these and in the end, and I pretty much knew it, there is only one thing that matters which is why I ultimately sucked it up and went with Direct TV.
My wallet is going to feel a sting for a paycheck or two but in the end everything will work out and I'll be a better person because of it.
With all of that said, I am really looking forward to using the DVR feature on the system because there are a couple of shows going on right now that I really really really want to catch up on.
Breaking Bad Season 5 (Final Season).
The Walking Dead Season 3.
Doctor Who Season 7.
So, by the time I get home from work on Thursday it should all be set up and ready to go and I can begin filling up my DVR with a whole lot of goodness.
