NBC and ABC are great somedays and unwatchable others.
Do i have ANY other options to get HDTV? Perhaps some internet service or a satellite service for people who dont face the southern sky?
Hate to say this, but it's time to move.
I live in the ridiculously expensive Bay area where my wife and I live in a 900 someting sq. ft. apartment.
We are house hunting, but don't want to spend too much. The thing is though, I'm picky. The place has to be okay for comcast cable AND to put my Starchoice canadian satellite. Ideally it would have a room for a true HT as well, but if not and it's a house with a large enough lot, we'll add a room.
We've ruled out numerous places because for one reason or another, they lack the requirements above. It sucks (more for my wife than me, who sometimes says "Can't you give up your Canadian satellite for a place?")
I respond that we got this tiny apt and I had to give up my projector and HT ideas and have been that way for 2 years, so yes I want my cake and eat it too.
Seriously though, if I was looking to rent an apt, the key feature would be cable/satellite. Sad but true.
