F...My Cable Company!

They have what I need and they know it. Last month my Cable TV + Internet cost was $150 which is quite f'ing absurd. I down graded my package last week one notch and they reduced my cost to a more "manageable" cost of $130 per month and they took NFL Networks away from me.


What a big f'ing ripoff! Here's to TV Freedom and A La Carte TV.

Re: F...My Cable Company!

Yeah, Comcast can suck my left nut...

I pay $140 a month for 2 digital converters (one with DVR), all their channels (have to pay extra for a sports package that I would love you to have but an extra 5 bucks is ridiculous - fortunately NFL Network isn't in that package) and the internet. For what I'm paying them, they should have someone come to my house and change the channels for me. Bastards. And don't get me started on their Customer Service and slowness to correct their own interruption problems.

Re: F...My Cable Company!

What I want to know is why hasn't the cost of broadband internet come down as more and more people have subscribed to it? $44.95 per month sure isn't cheap for internet.

Re: F...My Cable Company!

I pay Time Warner $200 a month for internet, tv and phone all in one package. Then I pay Direct TV just so I can get the NFL package and don't miss my beloved Skins EVER! God, the things I could do with $250 a month....new jet ski, new car, new hooker...

Re: F...My Cable Company!

So why not just dump TW and go only with DTV? Same channels, a little cheaper too.

Re: F...My Cable Company!

I don't know if DTV offers this, but DVR is the greatest thing I've ever had.

Re: F...My Cable Company!

I can't - the hail storms and thunderstorms are too much for the dish throughout the year. Its a sacrafice I have to make so I can watch the skins.
