Re: Contradicting rulings ?

said by Hall:

I always thought the cable companies would try and go all-digital right around the same time as broadcast and just use the FCC's ruling as an excuse.
Nope. There are a lot of us people receiving cable TV without boxes. I get approx 70 analog channels. If my cable company makes me pay for a box, I might as well switch to FIOS!

Well that is going to end. And if you have 6 TVs, they are not going to give you 6 free STBs. A couple of them tops for free. After that you pay. Don't like it, go to Fios - but you will still pay extra for extra TVs.

Cablevision never gave anyone anything for free. Their company policy is to screw their customers.

FIOS is available to you and you don't have it?

No, it's not available. And I probably wouldn't switch unless it was cheaper than my $48 analog cable with no boxes. I'd keep my POTS, DSL, and cable unless it would reduce my bills.
