I am living in this place since August, and I did not have TV until last weekend, I just turned on once, and I realize that I do not have cable, well I knew that from before... but the weird thing to me is that I do not have local chanels... Is it that weird? I always thougth that local channels were free... but here look like I will need cable to start using my TV... I am so upset... It is alwas that way? Do you have cable? or do you get the local channels for free?
