Cooler? How about cheaper?

I suppose that some day, maybe 100 years from now, scientists will perfect "3D", in the form of some kind of implantable probe, that truly gives us an enveloping experience without the headaches and vertigo.

But until then, it is a complete and utter waste of time and money if you're old enough to drink.

Meanwhile, Google charges $120 a month for pay-tv.

What happened to "Don't be evil" ?

$120 for TV AND gig internet. Sounds like a deal. 120 won't get you much for TV+internet where I live.

is that $120 a 1-2 year promo rate? Lower base price with no proms like the other guys?

$120 flat. No promos. No gimmicks.

You're basically paying $70 for gigabit Internet, plus $50 for TV.

Nope. Its $120 for pay-tv. They don't sell it for a penny less.

headaches and vertigo? I haven't run into anyone that has had those side effects. I know people ranging in age from 35 to 88 that have had no problem viewing 3D.

Here's what I pay:

Dish: $45/month
Cable Internet: $45/month (10/1)
Total: $90

So for basically $30 more I would get 100 times the speed download and 1000 times the speed upload with a far better channel selection.

Their gigabit service alone is $70 dollars, so the TV alone would theoretically be $50/month. Not bad.

That said, I wouldn't get gigabit (yet), because it's a bit more than I would like to pay.

you can add extra TV Boxes for $5 each/month for 24 months. You also have the option to purchase TV boxes upfront for $120/ea.

why can't you buy the boxes on other systems and not pay high outlet / mirroring fees?

Yeah, I read that, long ago.

It clearly says you have to pay $120/month to get their pay-tv.

Maybe you should look at it again.
