Back in the day when cable arrived, it was a big jump from antenna. But in most areas, cable companies had a monopoly and viewers didn't have choices. What Tony described above is a great example of someone building their own service based on what they watch.
For the sports junkies, HD sports may be a must. Others watch more TV shows, while some folks watch mostly movies. These days you have more control and the ability to customize, and that's cool.
Thanks for the comment, Tony!
