Sports fee for non sports channels
In my area, Comcast has included Turner Classic Movies and Fox Movie Channel (that my mother likes to watch) in the sports entertainment package. It's a moot point now as I subscribe to the Xfinity Triple Play Premier package that includes all the channels.
I just wish the cable/satellite providers would bring on the carriage disputes with ESPN as that channel makes up a good chunk of a cable bill with its high per-subscriber fee. Cable providers these days are not reluctant to blackout channels or clusters of channels to get their way with programming provider. I personally think ESPN should be a part of a premium sports package.
I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner. They are much better than broadcast TV.
I have not and will not cut the cord.
