    It may be old fashioned but ever since they started putting commercials onto cable TV I stopped buying. The nerve of someone to both charge me for a service and then make me watch commercials. Free digital TV provides me plenty of channels in a metropolitan area. Just say no.

    If nothing else this has given me a new hashtag to use: #cockbag

    Thank God for satellite service…oh wait

    BR, this had me ROFLMAO this morning. What’s sad is that having worked for companies (both cable and satellite) in this industry as an IT consultant and contractor, this video is on the money.

    Love it!

    Unfortunately, the progression is toward more and more oligopolies. Autos. Airlines. Software. Retail (think Amazon, Walmart). And of course Banks.

    With the next big M&A, please shout “Serf is up.” Because serfdom is exactly where an oligopolistic and monopolistic economy leads.

    hm…this is what we call the market in the US.

    and we seem to think (or some do) that we like this too

    Postpartisan and Louis: I prefer my TV streaming, too, but you still need the cable company for your Internet!

    For us, it’s even worse. In our condo building, Comcast signed up the whole place when it was built. The monthly fee is taken in our assessment. We just moved in and there is no way to for us to opt out of the Comcast deal. We don’t have a TV, we don’t use cable, but each month we must pay $30 from now on – $360 a year.
