Re: New TV Package: Select HD

Do places really have more then one type of cable serve offered to them? Remember, there are places, for a variety of reasons, that people cannot get satellite service. I'm in that situation because I have trees in my yard which block the line of sight. Other people can not because of the rules in their development.

I do have C* in my area, and since Verizon came around in 2009, their customer service I am told, has gotten better. But when you look at the pricing, it's about the same.

I liken the cable industry to the gasoline industry where you can have three stations on the same intersection and all three offer the same prices. It's imperfect competition.

...or they're providing a similar product with similar costs and are pricing the product to sell to a similar demographic in a similar location.
