I agree with you, but that wasn't the reason for my recent cancellation of my Cable TV, it was the prices - over the past few years it just went up, up, and up.
So at the most recent price rise, I called, and cancelled my contract.
I then, took out a new internet-only subscription that was as fast as money could buy (for residential).
But what really chapped my @ss, was paying for Muslim TV, Gay TV, Shopping Channel, Cartoons, Football channels, (insert other awful network here).
It felt like supporting banks that should have been allowed to fail - let us choose *each and every channel* we want, and thus pay proportinally, NOT the cr@ppy 'packages' they try to force-feed down my throat. I don't want, nor need 110 channels of garbage, I'd just like about 15 of MY CHOOSING.
So Mr. Cable Operator, let me choose *each and every channel*, and you CAN have my money again. Oh how my heart would bleed watching Muslim TV shut down due to lack of subsciptions...
Otherwise, Mr. Cable Operator? Fade into insignificance...
