First topic message reminder :

Hello everyone, I wanted to know if Satellite TV is better then Cable TV, if so why? If not why? I know one is cheaper, but are there any other advantages?

No, we just switched to cable because sattellite tv sucks.. i say this because when its windy or raining the sattelite goes out and you have no tv which really is no fun if your paying for it. With cable that doesnt happen

In the usa the sattelite provider we have (yes still have the service because we are on a contract apparently with them), which we have hooked up to a spare tv for me to watch, doesn't have some of the channels cable does like News 12 NJ or the YES Network (channel Yankees are on 98% of the season during the regular season) which kinda sucks since that means I will be unable to watch the yankees on it.

All it is going to be good for is watching the walking dead when I am home, some sports channels, the news, weather channel and maybe movies occasionally, the rest of the channels I probably won't watch much.

I could be wrong about this but a large percentage of satellite TV companies do not carry local TV signals.

That is partially true. Some local news channels they do not carry and others they do.

and if they do, they charge an exorbitant amount of cash to the customer to receive them, which is just BS

I'll have to do some research on this, but Bell (now Bell-MTS) has a sattelite tv service in addition to cable one.

If anyone wants to know, 1mtvfan and myself now have a cable TV service called Fibe (which is provided by Bell/MTS).
