Re: I enjoy sports...

I can't speak for everyone as you can, but I can say that sports networks are NOT included in the basic because everyone wants them.

They are included because the content owners require it.

Very true. If you surf other websites and not Howard Forums, but actual news sites that cover these stories, you'll find that a LOT of people do not want ESPN included in their basic package and yet would rather opt-out. It has already been shown that ESPN is the driving cost of what Disney-ABC charges for programming.

I think its a good thing to charge those customers for those channels. Even if the customers that do not want them, get a price break, those that want it will still pay more with this type of service package.
