Bundles thru Cox Communications in Phoenix for tv/cable, internet and phone (2 extensions). TV has expanded program and no HBO or special channels, so it is $178. I gripe every month.
However, now that you are home and working out in your exercise room, yes, I personally think the tv will be some companionship. I know it sounds crazy, but as a single woman I keep the tv on for noise almost all the time and am not watching it. Yeah, I know....not very "green" of me.
Just don't get into the old fart habit of watching tv and not moooooving those muscles around, W2R.

When Mr B is off doing his Legion stuff and the weather is bad, I listen to digital music channels a lot. I pick a different one every day, but tend to return to the 70s channel.
I dance to the music as the mood hits me, or just use it as background while I am doing indoor projects. I find myself in a much more cheerful mood with music, i.e. zero commercials and no talking heads. TV soundtracks tend to annoy me.
