All cable/satellite companies Informative - Pricing
I am in the process of purchasing a home and will need to get cable TV. I have been reviewing the different options, cable vs satellite, not a fan of satellite since I live in Florida and our afternoon storms normally knocks out the signal. As I have been reviewing the "different packages" for cable, they all offer over 100 channels. I started thinking, how many channels have I ever watched. I can count maybe 4, so again, I was thinking the typical household probably does not watch over 10 different channels at any given time. So why is it I have to pay to watch over 100 different channels when its not necessary. Why can't you have smaller packages (start off with a package of 10 channels) and have a "menu" of the different channels and let the consumer pick and choose what channels they would like to receive and price accordingly? I think you would find many more consumers would be able to afford cable TV if this was an option.
Anyway, just my 3 cents.
