At least there is fencing

20 Jul

I have never had cable.  Not when I was growing up, not since Andrew and I have been married.  I was always content with watching local channels and watching cable at hotels and friends’ houses.  We just never wanted to commit to one more monthly payment. 

So when all the channels switched over to digital TV, I had no problem getting the converter box to keep our local channels. 

BUT IT SUCKS!!  We actually lost a couple of channel, and when we do get others, it is hit or miss because there are weak signals.  But we did get a few new channels.   Lots of spanish and asian channels.  And the Universal Sports channel comes in sometimes.  Whoohoo.

All I can say is that I may not be able to watch American Idol next season, but at least I can watch fencing.

For the first time in my life I am willing to pay for cable.

    I hear ya. At least with analogue if the signal is weak, it might be a little fuzzy but you can still watch it. A week digital signal is all cut up worth no signal at all

    Thanks for telling me how this works…now I won’t waste my money on one! I am ok without cable, too, until yesterday when I was watching a Thanksgiving episode of Friends and realized I won’t be able to see the parade…I am seriously considering getting cable for this alone…:/
