As you know, I'm moving this month, and I'm going over all my utilities and such at the new place. Where I will be moving my only option for TV and Internet is with Charter Cable. I am going to get the fastest Internet Package available in my area there known as Internet Plus (10mb download), so that's set.
What I am debating on is the TV package. Firstly, I only have 1 27" CRT TV (its got a flat screen, but it is not a flat panel, good ole CRT, but its digital). Right now where I live I have Standard Cable with 70 channels, no digital TV, no DVR. Where I am moving to though, the packages are cheaper, and I have more affordable options if I want digital TV and or DVR. So that's what I'm trying to decide on. This is what it boils down to with prices:
Standard Cable 70 channels + Internet Plus = $75 a month
Digital Home Cable 100+ channels + Internet Plus = $80 a month
Digital Home Cable 100+ channels + DVR + Internet Plus = $97 a month
There is only a $5 jump to go digital cable, but do I really need it? Then there is a larger $17 jump to get DVR with that digital cable, which would be neat to have, but again, do I need it?
So I guess I'm trying to decide, Standard Cable, or Digital Cable or Digital Cable + DVR
What are some benefits/caveats going with digital cable?
