My wife and I have found that we just do not go out to movie theaters as much as we used to. We really prefer to make a nice dinner at home and watch a movie or two. Popcorn at a theater cannot beat a homemade meal made by my wife. In the past, we often stopped in at local video stores to grab a video on the weekend, but that stopped when most video rental stores in our area closed down. Recently, we started looking into Time Warner Cable and another company in our area to see what was available.
Movies have always been a big deal in our home. When you have a hard day at work and life gets tough, it really is nice to sit with your spouse and enjoy a movie, smiles, laughter, etc. This means that whichever cable provider we decided to go through needed to have a great set of movie channels, and we also wanted a nice number of channels that would allow us to order movies whenever we wanted to.
We ended up getting a package deal that includes more than 200 channels through Time Warner This includes movie channels and plenty more movies and shows we could order at the touch of a button on our remote control. We previously had our phone and Internet service through another provider (with no cable), but we have now switched over and are enjoying paying everything on one bill.
My wife also enjoys watching all of her favorite daily talk shows with the DVR capability we now have. I enjoy recording different sports games and getting to watch them when I have free time on the weekends. We get to save money by doing this because we simply have no need to go to movie theaters anymore.
