Thank you everyone for the great comments. When I spoke to att last year, just like NewJeff said, they wouldn't budge, that's why I went with cablevision.
I really can't stand the game, but I will go at it again. I will also purchase an antenna.
Pulp, will that work on an old tv?

Those antennas are digital, so they will only work with a TV that has a digital tuner. How old? If made in the last 10 years, it should be OK. Any older, and probably not.

I can't get a good signal with an antenna anyway and I've seen them not work well in multiple locations. They are not a clear picture like sattelite/internet/cable.

Television OTA is the truest signal. I will take my locals by antenna over sat or cable any day. Satellite and cable are both compressed and not even close to the true signal.

I have the lowest level of cable TV from Cox. I don't even have a cable box. The coax cable goes directly into the TV. You can still get local HD channels this way if your TV has a HD tuner. The cable co will tell you that you need a cable box to view HD channels, but that's not true because they don't scramble the local HD channels.

I would like to see a cable package that only has HD channels. I asked about this before but Cox doesn't offer it. Their phone plan is a joke. They advertise $19 per month but no long distance and after taxes its more like $28 per month. You can get a cell phone plan for $25 per month now long distance included.
