I'm tired of the constant rising cost of cable TV and I'm researching ways to find an alternative source. Tivo, from what I am reading, may be the best I've seen thus far. But I have many questions that I have been unable to find answers too: 1 - Can I really get rid of my cable company with the purchase of Tivo and still be able to watch local, national TV programs, NHL (Center Ice), NFL, MLB, college sports? 2 - If I am able to do question 1 (above), would I incur additional cost such as Center Ice, which cost me $160 a season through my cable provider (COX)? I have many more questions but I will just ask only these two for now and see how well this goes. Thanks for all replies!!
