Expanded Cable

I've been pet sitting for some friends that have gone out of town for a few days. I had wanted to get some quality writing time in, but thus ain't happening. They have one of those very large projection television sets, surround sound and expanded cable.

Once I figured out how to work the remote and turn the channel I've been like a kid in the candy store. I just sit on the over stuffed couch and stare transfixed at the screen.

One thing about it that bothers me are the subscription channels. There are like 10 HBOs, 20 Showtimes, Encore, Cinemax, Starz and many more. These channels are right in the middle of the channel guide so you have to flip past them to get to the nonsubscription channels. I would think there would be a way to deprogram them or something, but what do I know?

Anyhow, this got me wondering. What would the mothly cable bill be if you subscribed to every possible channel? $2000? $3000? Or more?

I'm sure somebody out there subscibes to every channel. Tell me, how much is your bill?

I have 250 channels and it cost me $70 a month. I'm thinking about reducing that. I Never watch the Spanish channels, the sports packages, or rarely tune into the music channels. I wish we could just pick a package with our top 20 favorites.
Sounds like you're having fun!
(If your remote has a guide button, you might try pressing it multiple times. My remote will bring up only the ones I subscribe to if I push it twice or so. I have Dish.)

I have a bunch of channels and pay like 130. But that includes terlephone and internet so I have no idea which is no help. I guess I just wanted to say hello.
