We are trying to gather some information about this. We will discuss the results on Friday's show. How Much does your TV Service Cost?

Have a great day!

Shouldn't you have an actual poll set up to tally the answers?

No cable / sat in our house, OTA antenna for HDTV. Especially nowadays when you can watch TV shows for free directly from the broadcaster (ie. Comedy Network, CTV, etc.) over their internet website.

That's tough to answer if you have bundled services. I have Comcast internet, phone and cable (cable cards in 2 Tivo's) and the total bill with the never ending discount is $137 per month.

Pan 46PZ85U, Marantz SR5003, TiVo Premier, TiVoHd + 1tb, A2 (fs), PS3, Pan DMR E-95 (fs), JVC DVD-A, Polk & Infinity, Harmony One

1. U-verse TV U200 72.00
2. HD Technology Fee 10.00 (go figure!)
3. IN Local Video Service Franchise Fee 4.10
4. IN State Sales Tax 5.30

Total TV = $91.40 or $1096.80/yr.

Plus hi speed = $48.
Double Pack discount $-10.57

Total hi speed and TV= $128.83 or $1545.96/yr

I really don't get $1096.80/yr of value from the TV portion. Will be killing the TV part soon.
