Re: real reason for rate hikes??

Real reason is for both, I work for TWc SoCal, and while we did sign a agreement with the Dodgers, with the other providers wanting access, that will partially pay off the cost of the agrement. Also, there are other network cost, ESPN (Disney) wants a arm and a leg, and so do other channels. It's a trickle down effect...

and what of the ad revenue generated off this channel which of/is more then enough to pay for its programing costs?

in SATX what is the real reason?? if most everyone in all markets overpays for a internet speed tiers based on actual usage.

They're not in business to break even. Do you work for your employer only to live paycheck to paycheck?

LOL!!!!!!

a ten year $7 trillion investment in training and repairing/upgrading equipment would net them a much LARGER profit margin then the profit generated from ad revenue for one channel in that 10 year time frame.

so you demand upto 20% quarterly pay increase??

a HUGE chunk of the US population live paycheck to paycheck

For a vast percentage of the population, yes.

The majority of Americans today live pay check to pay check.

Before you say it, anyone in IT who has some attitude of I'm fine, so screw the other people; well I hate to bring bad news but your job is actually the easiest to outsource today.

Therefore, I wouldn't be thinking screw you to anyone. Those that cannot be outsourced, they just bring in folks on h1b visas to replace you.

Why don't they put those channels (ESPN/Disney and Dodgers) into a separate tier.

I don't care for either set, yet I'm being extorted into paying it.

Anyone who is living pay check to pay check should not be paying a monthly triple-play $100+ every month. I was one of those people back when I was younger and lived on an aerial antenna and a $20/month pay as you go cell phone.
