OK, I gave the new Cable Onda changes a week to see if my first impression was too harsh. Guess what? I still HATE it! I really HATE it. Nothing more to say. I HATE it.
The American Network Channel (80), is one of the most annoying channels I have ever watched in my life. It continually plays previews over and over again. The addition of the Cuba channel doesn’t impress me either.
Many of the sports broadcasts are going to be in Spanish if they are even available. Golf is obviously not a sport that carries much interest in Panama, I guess, because I couldn’t find it today.
I switched from Astrovision, to Cable Onda, because I thought it would be a step up, and now it is one of the options I am considering going back to. I may just drop Cable Onda for everything except my telephone and Internet.
I am going to explore all options when I return from my trip. I may just replace the entire package as a form of protest.
As can be seen from the comments on my previous Cable Onda post, other Latin American countries are still receiving the US networks.
I understand that there may be a possibility of getting a Puerto Rico satellite system, that receives the US networks, in this area.
At the present time, I can get more enjoyment from the Internet, a few good books and some Blockbuster DVD rentals, than I can with this makeover.
I realize that my opinion of Cable Onda’s change has little influence, but I may cast my ballot about their change by canceling my account, maybe Internet and telephone too.
I HATE THE NEW CABLE ONDA MAKEOVER!!!!!!
