As you all know, Mega TV was launched in 1996 by TV3 as the only cable tv service in our country. However, it faced stiff competition from the satellite television network Astro, and failed to expand its content. Because of this, it closed down in 2001, and was replaced by its competitor. But, Astro's direct-to-home offering via satellite transmission sometimes has a rain-fade issue that could be one of the factors people will switch IF CABLE TV comes to Malaysia.

Cable has been around longer and has the advantage of not losing the signal during storms or rains. On-demand movies are able to be viewed right away with just one click of your control, unlike satellite companies that make you wait for the beginning of the next round. Did you know that many cable companies in the United States not only offer high quality digital TV, but also have high speed Internet, and even phone service available? It's true, with Time Warner, Charter and Cox, you can bundle all three cable services together!



When you have high-speed Internet, you won't have to wait forever for a picture or site to download. All the information you could possibly need is right at your fingertips, and now you can access it in seconds. Besides that, digital voice phone service tops off their offerings of telecommunication services by providing tons of great features!

To make a great combination of services even better, all three of them are bundled together into a low monthly bill that will save you plenty of money while providing you with unprecedented connectivity. You will only have to write one check a month instead of three. What could be easier than that? You can't beat a bundle!

Oh well, we do not have cable companies which offer a package deal where they provide Cable TV, Internet and phone service in a "bundle" here. For crying out loud, we're now in the twenty-first century!!!
