I can't get any channel to come in without subscribing to cable. In my area there's only one cable co, and the bill is $40 + a month - and that's just basic and (what they call) extended (no pay per view, no rental equipment, no high speed internet). Every few months (it seems) the price keeps on jumping higher. It's been that way (one cable co) in my area for years.
So today, I expressed my displeasure & told them they're a monopoly, blah, blah, blah. Also mentioned I saw an ad on TV (toll free #), where a bill will be proposed to bring in another co,? since they have made billions over the years from a majority of the population here. I can't wait & really hope they will fold. GRRRRR!!!
What's the cable price/situation in your neck of the woods?
P.S. And, you hold a year-and-a-day to get someone on the phone. Press 1 for Spanish, press 2 for English. Gave them a piece of my mind about that as well. Next, they want my drivers license # and address. At the end of the conversation, there's "Is there anything else I can do for you today?"
P.P.S. And with all their stations, there's nothing on. (Several news cable stations, spanish, and several shopping channels.)
This was prompted by a message left telling me what time they'd be out for my appointment. I didn't have an appointment. DUH.
It's a conspiracy,
, among the phone co., cellular phones, high speed internet, and cable tv cos to hand 'em over all our money.
My VCR still flashes 12:00, 12;00, 12:00
