The consumer is always right!

Cable and satellite are the only industries that force things on the consumer they don't want. If I go to a supermarket I can buy only cheese - it isn't packaged with bread. If I go to McDonalds I have a choice - I can buy just a burger OR I can buy the meal. MY choice.

I never watch sports at home, so why should almost TEN DOLLARS of my satellite bill go towards supporting ESPN? Here's an idea, cable industry - Let me drop ESPN, The Golf Channel,
all the god squadders and shopping channels and I'll use the money I've saved to buy HBO! That way HBO can hire more people.

Not exactly, but some of the most visible to be sure. Telecommunications in general is like this.
