Re: bad link Karl I understand that, I've always been a limited basic (OTA is not useable at my location) because I can't see spending the money on "endless channels". for the last 5 months we've had a blast plus promo which added digital preferred HD channels for about $10 a month. While there are a few channels we like, we fell into the pattern of a half dozen shows we actual watch, not worth the $70+ that will be charged next month, so the STB goes back and we become limited basic/hulu+/Netflix customers again.
But it is a choice, and MOST seem unwilling to walk away/reduce their consumption. (sort of a video obesity/ compulsive viewer, an effect that MANY premium luxury services depend on to upsell non- Necessities )
