Re: Ridiculous

Wtf are you talking about. I cut the cable and saved $75 a month. Besides for many of us its not about the money. I could afford to subscribe cable,satellite, and everything in between but just because my disposable income is healthy doesn't mean I need to get ripped off. Bottom line is and I've said this many times before there is no way in hell for a working person to get value out of a TV subscription. Not with this business model. But you go ahead and keep paying and as more and more cut your cable rates will soon double to cover those losses. I guess I might be angry and defensive if I was like you and addicted to crap too. Because your wallet is going to get raided and the content is just going to get worse.

Well genius, won't you write up a business plan so we can all read it and be wowed. The problem with you is you spend all this time tying yourself up to save $75 and then go out and try to piece it all back together with OTA, Netflix, Roku's .... to get back what you had to start out with. Yeah, you showed them! Sorry, my time each month is worth more than a few dollars per week trying to prove an idiotic point. If you were getting "ripped off" so bad, tell me what's a fair price to pay for everything? You must have a magic number thats makes the whole world at ease? No you don't, you just like to point fingers and claim being the victim.

Actually, what he is doing is watching the shows he wants to watch. Personally, I just use Netflix and apple TV and am able to purchase the shows I want to watch.

It's not about the cash, it's about not be forced to subsidize the rubbish on cable. I cannot justify paying more than $20 for the crap on our cable services.

Moreover, I despise the fact that these monopolistic cable companies are doing everything they can to hamper competition, particularly IPTV and a la carte services.

Only a complete tool would cheer funding an industry that is ranked dead last for customer service. Who else but a monopoly is able to get away with billing me incorrectly for 5 months for example.
