you do realize that someone has to pay for those techs that go to everyone's house right? to maintain those lines? customer service reps? Content pricing are everything and nothing else is BS. Look at what ATT has to deal with then lets talk numbers. Supporting that entire work force is more than the cost of the programming.
Every industry has to support their overhead with their pricing. But very few, if any, have yearly price increases that are higher than the rate of inflation like the pay-tv industry does.
