Paying for brain damage
We stopped subscribing to CTV years ago and choose what we want to watch on the internet/rental with no commercials for $60/month. Cable TV gives you a big bill, 90% crap to watch and carefully crafted advertising designed to make you feel unsatisfied with life so you have to spend more to feel good about yourself - and they get you to pay for that too. We are much more content nowadays without that corrosive influence in our lives.
I agree, I would rather pay $100 for tv subscriptions without commercials and ads.
I can't stand cable tv, they charge people money for tv service, then have so many damn ads and commercials you can't really enjoy it. Such a rip off.
Free sites like Crackle has ads to help pay for the hosting, which i am fine with, because its no way as near annoying like what is on cable tv. plus its free, if cable companies wanted to give me free cable tv with all the ads and commercials that they have now then I would be fine with it. but i will not pay for tv that has ads too!
