How many channels come with basic cable?
The number of channels you get with your cable will be determined by the package you get and the provider you go with. The higher the package the more channels you will get. With basic cable, you will typically get around 50-100 channels depending on the cable TV provider you select. If there are certain channels you want, speak to your cable TV provider and ask them what package you would need to get in order to get the channels you want. More often than not, they can offer you a deal in order to get what you want.
