Re: You know...
Even at the average $100/mo for Cable TV/Internet, cable is a cheap entertainment value. A family of 4 going out 2 nights a month for a movie or sports event plus eating would more than exceed the monthly cost of the cable $. And in a down economy, this is still a good deal.

With the universal product placement and scripting done around products pretty much what you are paying for is to watch ads.
How many shows (I don't mean QVC either) are effectively just ads anyways ?
Channels like HGTV are effectively paid for by Lowes/Home Depot.
Speed channel is effectively a channel for car dealers and after market parts.
I could go on.
