We now possess Sky TV. The particular package includes the four local stations we could receive with the Rabbit's Ears, and of course plus. For a three month trial, we've got Starz, and a bundle of HDTV stations (those may be more permanent). After the three months, we need to decide if we care to keep the bill low, in which case we'll drop about half the stations (probably including Starz).
The good news is SciFi is on the list that will remain, regardless. The bad news is apparently HBO is not on the list, at all. So no Deadwood for me, other than on DVD.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled life.
