Spend money to save money - part 5
Cable or satellite television is something I have not paid for directly. I just can't bring myself to pay for something that is available for free. I would encourage people to cut the cable TV and ditch the dish and buy an antenna to receive free over-the-air high-definition broadcasts. Here is one that I like and have inside my house on top of a book case that receives all the major stations in my area. It is only $30 but does require to be plugged in while in use. Here is an outside antenna package that I would like to have. It is only $100. Being an outside antenna, I would think it could pick up a few more channels. These antennas are one time purchases whereas cable and dish are on-going monthly outlays of about $30 per month or $360 per year. I can't imagine paying that much for television. If you are looking to buy something to save money, this is a prime example.
