  • It depends on where you live and who provides out there. We have Dish Network (American's Top 200 package) and we pay at the moment $43. This is with out discount we get for a few more months. As soon as we pay our credit card off we plan on getting the American "everything" package which will be $100 plus tax.

  • We pay $25 for basic cable and another $10 for our 1 dvr box. We just get basic channels in the bedrooms and more and digital music channels in the living room.

  • It depends on where you live and what you get. I have had no-frills for $20 a month that was offered for disabled and elderly people. It can be $100 or more a month for just cable tv. If you get internet and phone then it could be $200+.

  • it depends on where you live and what type of service. In Tacoma Wa I pay $50 fro expanded digital cable about $3-4 hundred channels but no pay channels other then On Demand which run about $4.99 now. thats with a local cable co. If I were ti use comcast it would be over $100 but with national companies you can probably bundle your phone, internet and cable and get a decent deal. You just need to call around and ask about different pkgs.

  • We have everything pretty much, well, we don't have a house phone. We have our internet and cable with verizon, the fastest and the best you can get with them. We have all the movie channels and all the HD channels. DH is a nut and won't have it any other way, lol. Anyway we pay $170 a month and that is if DH doesn't order any movies On Demand.
