The story “Penny-pinchers are cutting the cord” (2/16, FYI) should be a big wake-up to cable and satellite TV providers. More than likely they will go after the networks to somehow make it impossible for end users to be able to get TV for free.
I remember why cable came into being in the first place — so we could pay not to have commercials. What a joke that is now, as we pay a ridiculous premium to watch TV and get more ads than we ever have.
So once again here we are, the paying consumer, getting the gouge as the cable and satellite companies have gone to contracts and ridiculous disconnection fees. Read the fine print.
