    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It's Cable T.V.
    Cons: It's Pay T.V.

    Summary: Cablevision isn't exactly the best Cable in NY. The only problem is, is that we in Bklyn and the Bronx really don't have a choice. That's the only cable available to us. Time Warner is shown in Manhattan and Queens so for what we have I guess it's okay. ... read more

    Pros: Commitment to Long Island
    Cons: Price?

    Summary: Yeah, their monthly fees are a bit more than I'd really like to pay, But I think the programming is pretty good. As a Long Islander, I especially like News 12. The New York City networks bring you 4 minutes of Long Island news every night, where News 12 ... read more

    Pros: Solid service... no service black outs... yet.
    Cons: Lack of basic cable channels. Expensive.

    Summary: I'm not one of those rabid cable watchers and I still consider it somewhat of a luxury. If I didn't have cable, I really wouldn't care. In fact, I only have it because it is currently required in order for me to receive cable modem service. I'd just ... read more
