Do you have free to air as well as cable TV in your country?

I most part of Australia we have 4 or 5 free to air channels and then can subscribe to cable TV for a fairly hefty fee (around $80/month depending on what stations you choose to subscribe to) What is the television situation like where you live?

We have pretty much the same thing in the US. Depending where you live there are 3 or 4 free stations (we call them "broadcast") but the reception can be pretty bad. The cable stations carry these broadcast stations also in their "basic" package. Where I live, the basic package costs about $45 a month and has about 60 channels, but no movie channels (like HBO), or commercial free channels. Those are added on for an extra charge.

I am also in Australia; there are days it feels like a rip off to have to pay money to watch something decent on tv. We started on the basic Foxtel package (our pay tv supplier) but when the sci fi channel started, we had to up grade our service.
