There are many pros to choosing cable TV over other service providers. Before making a decision, keep the following factors in mind.
The biggest plus for most people who choose cable TV service is that they donâ€™t have to deal with a satellite dish. They can be unsightly when placed on your home, especially if it is attached to the front of the house. There can also be complications due to weather. Rain and snow can block the signal from reaching a dish. Cable TV will not have this issue.
Many cable companies will offer package deals that can help save you money. Customers may be able to bundle their internet and digital phone service in with their cable. Also ask about the availability of a DVR. Several cable TV companies provide one in their packages.
Another big deciding factor for those trying to choose between cable TV and other providers is if they can get local channels. Cable will offer you the major network channels from your area. Many of the satellite companies will provide the big networks, but not from your local area. Cable TV will also offer HD channels, along with movies and programming on demand.
