17+ percent rate hike? Who in their right mind really thinks the Dodgers are worth even a portion of that rate hike on EVERYONE in that market? Who thinks that jacking the wallets open of ALL their customers to pay for questionable programming at best is to be allowed? It's always the same story with these people; "You take what we offer in our bundles and pay us what we want" The bundles are nothing but rehashed shopping channels infomercial station multiple reruns of college football, soccer and reality"trash" channels. The quality programming is costly and NOT included or offered except in the higher priced bundles. I guess an a la carte system of customers able to choose what they watch is too costly (for the cable provider) and certainly too risky for the likes of Disney etc that produce their "entertainment"
