Letter: Must cable boxes be set at a tilt?Property owners usually take pride in keeping the extraneous items on their property neat and well kept. For example, most homes that have fences have had their fence professionally installed. It is an eyesore to see a dilapidated fence.
But this letter is not about fences; it’s about our professionally installed cable boxes. Have you ever noticed that practically every cable box is slanted more than 10 to 20 degrees. Maybe the design of the base should be improved. But crooked cable boxes is the norm. Is this an attitude or design problem?
I encourage the cable company to try a little harder.
