Initially Satellite TV can be costly. To setup your satellite dish, you are going to end up paying a couple of hundred. This price can be tacked onto your bill, which can make it easier to pay for. But in the end your bill will be double, maybe even triple what you initially thought it would be. Unlike cable, there are much more equipment involved. You have to deal with dishes, and boxes, as in with cable you only have your digital boxes involved.
Cable packages are usually much smaller in price. You get more channels for a lower rate, where in Satellite TV you will have to pay more money for extra channels. You will also notice that with Cable you receive your local channels. With Satellite you have to pay for your locals.
Your decision on which service to choose is highly up to you. It will all depend on what you it is you are looking for and what you are willing to pay.
