How do they live!?!?!?!?!?
Please tell me one of them’s at least a movie channel!
Non cable in a nutshell
It’s 2001. They should have, like, seven channels, thanks to Fox, PBS, WB, and UPN…
Been there, done that. My great-grandmother lived in an area where the only utilities other than power were the phone company. Where she lived, you could only pick up like three channels OTA, even in the post-digital years. Most people in that area had a satellite dish for TV, and that was also the only internet offered there until about 5-6 years ago. Eventually, the small telephone company (pretty much, the only one not yet absorbed into Verizon/GTE around here) about a year or two after she passed away started to also offer internet and TV service; and the relative who currently owns the place got TV as soon as it was offered.
At least it wasn’t that bad, as ca. 2008 or so the OTA/basic networks hadn’t yet ditched Saturday morning kids shows for the bland super low-budget E/I garbage on now. While cable is offered where I live (about 5 minutes outside of a town of 5000), we can’t get anything OTA here, even with a modern digital antenna and a modern TV due to living right in the Appalachian Mountains.
