Small TV without cable box for kitchen

14 years ago

I would like to get a Small TV without cable box for kitchen. It would like to get one that I can fold up or down to put under a 15" wide upper cabinet.

I don't want to take up any counter space.

I'd like to know if anyone has used a cable card in a tv like this and how it's worked out. My husband has looked for small sized flat screen TVs that are 'cable card compatible' and can't seem to find them or is not able to search for this feature.

I heard that the drawbacks of the cable card over the cable box is that you don't get the pay per view, on demand and programming guide. The only thing I'd miss is the programming guide since I'm only using this in the kitchen.

Do you know if there is any future upgrades in the cable card that will make it work more like a cable box?

Also, for those who have a small tv in their kitchen and have a cable box, where do you have the cable box so you can use a remote with it?

Does the cable box have to behind glass or do you have to have the box in a cabinet close to the tv?
