My cable bill is almost 200.00$ per month  for nothing but repeat's & old   movie's that I've

 

seen a hundred time's.Oh but wait...We do get those wonderful  PAID PROGRAM'S even during

 

the day time .What they just showed for the next year doesn't warrant the price's for me anyway.

 

Basic cable is 50.00$...everytime I ask for a channel I like it's always in a whole new channel

 

package,,10.00$  for  each one.EX: Figure Skating..I have to pay for all the sports just to get that.

 

I know of many people who can't afford cable period now,that's not fair, shouldn't have to be rich

 

in our city to watch T.V..I'm paying alot & and I don't even get any movie channel's.

OMG! I thought that this was about tax reform, scientific discoveries, world politics, etc. Well I was wrong, do not know about anything I saw and am not excited at all!

I keep asking myself the question why should I be paying to watch commercials. Especially the way in which they come across to us.

Those three minute plus commercial breaks are killers. By the time the movie comes back on, if I'm still there I have forgotten what it was all about.

I have Bell Express Vu and it's the same thing.  Multiple X Multiple of channels showing the same movie, episode, game show, sit-com, etc...  And if I want 1, only ONE, extra program I have to take the whole package that this one program is on.  But what are we, the consumer to do???  I understand that whom ever we subscribe to, they are all  the same; big promisses and even bigger disapointments.

What gets me is how they suck you in with wonderful sounding packages to switch providers. Then everything you need is extra. After a few months the deal is over and you are paying as much as you were before.  And don't get me started on Rogers 'high speed' internet.  I found that the internet that came with my 'package' was slow. So I complained and was told that I had 'high speed lite'!!!!! Is that an oxymoron or what? They persuaded me to switch to a more expensive package but I find that I am still spending a lot of time watching that little circle go round and round.

 

As for TV, I spend far more time watching DVD's than the awful programs that are all that is available. At least Smash and Arctic Air are a change from cop or doctor shows.

I totally agree I live Kansas City KANSAS my TWC bill WAS $190 a month, but that included cable TV landline teley and Turbo Internet. I had all shut off never got any house work done, had house and 2acre yard paid bucks to have done. Now with no distractions I do these things myself and my iPhone has awesome shows, web and teley all for $120 a month.

the well know internet provider is no better. I am paying 190$ for Tel service and internet, cable is with another provider. The high speed unlimited internet´ claims to be most stable actually has limits, & often not work at the peak time like 7-11pm and week-ends. When i called and learn that i had max the package limits, and has to up grade to a higher usage package,40$ each upgrade, but still over. At one time I am paying 365$émth as they say I had max the max usage package and all the over usage has a max charge of 80$. Then why should I pay for all the upgrades! I switch cable provider as I felt cheated with the same internet provider. However, just as you says, after the first special period, the charges  keep rises, and channels change, all my favorite channels were group in different package. I had to pay for all the channels that I didn`t watch, $44 for less than 10 channels I am actually interested in.  Tinternet & cable services has becomes as much as I pay for my car each month!

I watched a one hour program and counted 40 commercials. The interest is gone by the time the back end of the program, heavily loaded with commercials, comes around.  I can't be bothered watching much t.v. A new idea for paying for programming is needed.

smash is good, but a pity they got rid of Raza Jaffrey, who promised to be a great new talent, singing and dancing with the best of them
