I'm uncomfortable seeing this channel on our system and apparently a lot of advertisers fee the same way.
Yeah, I can understand your view. I don't necessarily agree with it, though.
Personally, I am uncomfortable with the amount I have to pay each month in order to pay for the sports networks that are forced upon me in the bundled packages. I am uncomfortable with my local news being pre-empted when the business of NFL football runs over its allotted time.
It is not that I do not like sports. It is that I do not like the required purchase of overly-commercialized "sports" (that are really corporate entities more than sports) that are prevalent on cable TV. (please note that I do understand that ESPN creates jobs in my state)
I think one channel of alternative viewpoints is worthwhile in light of the nearly dozen sports channels that I am required to pay for.
Kudo to Comcast for carrying this new news channel.
