When cable TV rolled into my town, it did seemed like magic and for the price, even though it was high, it seemed like a bargain. Slowly though, the shine came off the apple and eventually cable TV just became something you had and you took it for granted.
Maybe I am jaded or the novelty wore off after a while, but when I see print ads like this from 1982, I am reminded of the promise of Cable TV, a movie theater style experience at home.
