Thanks, RedShirt. I'll check it out. We do have grandkids who vist. The
16.x channels come in pretty good. I get 19.x channels but they are weak and
come and go. I'm curious to know what cities the 19.x channels are
broadcast from. It's nice living in the SL valley, because the TV towers
are all on Farnsworth Peak and have good coverage.
I can understand DesNews' concern with the "Zero TV" crowd. It
means less money for their sister entity, KSL. As far as KSL is concerned, our
family is part of the "Zero TV" crowd. We don't watch that channel
at all. And I don't miss it.
To "MapleDon" not really because you can watch the KSL news broadcasts
live on their website, which also generates income for them.
re: MapleDonKSL hasn't had anything worthwile on in years!I have similar viewing interests to Dante but am an Info junkie. I love
Bloomberg, H2, & HLN in the a.m.This is a great time of year to
sit and read with MLB network (diminshed volume) on in the background
We are a Zero TV household! All it took was that last "bundle &
save" satellite TV, internet & land phone service package that promised
a rebate of a $200 prepaid Visa card that never came ever! I guess a lot of
other people never got that prepaid card either as there was a class action
lawsuit about it. We also were promised a set price for 2 years contract, but
when the bill came it was a good $55. to $75 a month more than was promised in
the advertising. They added so many fees. What is a universal fee anyway? The
cable had the worst customer service & the bill was regularly messed up!
When the 2 years was up we pulled the plug on it all!We found a local
internet provider who charges exactly what they quote in their ads. No mystery
fees & taxes! Netflix keeps us up on all the movies & programs we want
to see. Many times we go directly to ABC or NBC to watch their content. After our horrible experience with the rip off and deceptive "bundle &
save" we will be Zero TV for life.
I use OOMA for VOIP telephone. No monthly cost. Just a one-time equipment cost
which paid for itself a couple of years ago.
I've read the added comments for this article several times, and I love
postings indicating there are many of us who don't want our minds filled
with garbage, or our pocketbooks lightened by outrageous fees.
This is some of best news I've read in a long time. The cable and
satellite companies had better get theirs now, because the day will come when we
don't need them and their over priced service.
After our cable service kept jacking our rate up, we dumped them and returned to
an antenna. Why pay a boatload for a bunch of garbage, when, for the price of an
antenna, our garbage is free, albeit limited.
