Description of service

This is monthly fee that I pay for 39 channels of digital cable from the local cable provider. I also paid a $35 dollar set up fee for installation.

Review of Service

Overall in the world of cable television this is relatively cheap. Most of the competitors of my service don't even have a package that is less than $30/month. The installment of the cable service cost me $35, even though my house was already wired for cable. But almost every cable company that I shopped charged a similar setup fee. The installment professionals were very friendly and experienced and my interaction with them was very enjoyable. I especially appreciated their honesty as they originally gave me more stations than I was paying for and then corrected it after they realized their mistake.

The service I have received has been very good as my cable has never gone out, which living in an area that is notorious for losing power and cable I have been very pleased. My favorite things about my current service is that even though I have the most basic package, I still get the Travel Channel, the Food Network, and Discovery Channel which are my favorite channels!


Unless there are certain channels that you cannot live without, I would suggest subscribing to the most basic package your provider offers. You will save a significant amount of money every month!
