That’s a fair point. I only have one TV and my kids are no longer in the house. If I wanted a TV in every room the cost would be much more.The real cost buster is perpetually renting HDTV boxes. They're $15-20/mo each and then taxes and fees on top of that. Load of bullshit that you can't buy your own like you can buy modems.
Put a TV in the family room and 3 bedrooms and there's easily $100/mo after all the taxes and fees just going to equipment rental.
I still am holding out on one TV in a family of 5, but lots of homes have that kind of setup.
