TV to Cost More

     Waching the boob tube is getting more expensive as all suppliers are upping their rates....Good thing the price of gas keeps dropping.

What happen to the lazy public service commission who is suppose to keep the cable and power companies from price gouging the public.

I wish the north country had more cable options for tv other than Time Warner, Dish Network or Direct TV.

Had satellite tv before, went to cable (because I have the internet, phone and cable package) and the price has gone up steadily since.

Where my daughter lives, she has the choice of multiple cable providing companies in addition to satellite tv.

Wish we could get Verizon FIOS here. I'd seriously consider that. My son has that with the same cable, phone and internet package in Syracuse and his bill is way lower than mine.

Only thing to do is cut the cord; unless you are a sports nut, there is nothing on cable worth paying for.

11:36- it's free for people in jail too. They get to watch it after they pump iron at the gym...another luxury I can't afford. You have to love America. Well, you do if you're a criminal or on welfare anyway.

I wouldn't go so far as to say there is nothing on cable or satellite worth paying for, but there is a lot of paying for stuff you, me and everyone else isn't interested in. The problem is that what I might be interested in would be something you have no interest in. No matter how much I enjoy the stuff I want to watch, the point is fast approaching where the price is too high for me to justify paying for all the crap just to watch the few I am interested in.

Isn't Canada going to a pay-for-what-you-want-to-watch system shortly?

TV costs are going up to protect investors and stockholders for one obvious reason: they are losing ground with the wireless, and less than cable industry - that means losing profits.

They can't keep up so they sock it those who still use them ... I say, threaten to drop them in large public numbers and watch them relent, I predict, or they will go out of business. Traditional TV is almost passé these days anyway.
