Television is one of the most regular and efficient ways of bringing people together. Since its inception a little over half a decade ago, it has fostered a sense of community and become a staple in the entertainment industry, as well as a number of other industries.
But those with televisions must decide which cable provider to choose, and to that end, how many channels they want, how much they want to pay, and a number of other critical decisions. Most people compare cable providers often, even when they have a current provider.
Cable television has been around in the United States since 1948, and has developed from a handful of channels to around a thousand channels. Cable even got its start earlier than that, as in 1924, some European cities had radio programming distributed by cable.
