Okay, I'm officially a wacko. Called the cable company to see how much it would be to get the free TV channels and decent fast internet. 1) They no longer offer free TV service (they did offer it about 6 months ago.) 2) Everything is contract. 3) Not interested.
Before you think I'm weird for calling the cable company about free TV, you have to understand that I live in a rural area on the farthest edge of the digital signal, so a digital antenna is of limited use. Also you have to understand that I believe that most TV is poison, like a wave version of wheat or sugar, which is of course a particle. I don't allow tobacco, illegal drugs, gluten, or sugar in my home and I consider that 200 channels of cable TV is on the same level. And hell will freeze over before I pay $100 per month with a 2-year contract for such. Question EVERYTHING including Time-Warner.
I'll be staying with my Radio Shack antenna and my basic cell phone and my aging 3G connection and my 8-year-old computer. Thank you for listening.
