Amen to that Bob. Although I don't see that happening because the networks are constantly raising the rates on the programs they supply to the cable and satellite company's and they have to pass that along to their subscribers. So if you got to pick and chose the cable and satellite company's would no longer have the revenue to cover the cost of 300+ channels for people to chose from. Although personally I think about 90% of those 300 channels wouldn't be missed by many people.Cord cutting is starting to hurt cable and dish companies. If they were smart, they would offer packages of only what folks want to watch and are willing to pay for, not 100's of channels of garbage.
We are paying about $235 for cable, internet and phone.
The only show I watch is Motor Trend and some football during the season and Barb watches the Hallmark channels and the Food network. Plus we get all the local channels out of Phoenix for news. Our TV comes on about 5pm for the news and is off no later than 11pm.
To get the channels we watch we had to take the 250 channel package of stations about 240 of them we will never watch.
Then on top of that I was going to drop my land line with them and was told my rates would go up $26 because I no longer would have the full package.
