When you decide to purchase cable television you will have your choice of packages. One of these packages will probably be referred to as a basic cable television package.
Within in this package, you will have a very limited choice of cable television viewing. Most likely, you will be able to receive your local programming channels, such as your ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox and PBS affiliate and 25 channels other than your local stations. Your package may include The Weather Channel, a home shopping channel, and perhaps a channel, such as TBS.
A basic cable package is good for people on a limited budget or for those who simply don't need or want all the extra channels for the extra price. You should contact your cable company today for pricing and options that are available to you.
