You mean the cable companies are trying to make a profit? How dare they! Its no different than what the telco companies do with their 14.99 phone line that ends up being 30 bucks a month or charging 30 dollars for a 6 meg DSL line that barley delivers 2.5. None of these business are in business to give their services away and prices are going up everywhere. I can say for a fact that I pay less for my cable connection than I did for AT&T/DirecTV by quite a clip and I get more channels and internet speed thats about 8 times faster. Im not waving anyone's flag here but so far, cable is the much better deal.
