What not even FOX?

Great if your internet isn't metered. Even the occasional video clip viewed on some people's metered service jacks up the monthly bill by $30-40. Watching only a couple of movies online per month would cover the cost of satellite TV, even at its excessive rates.

True the internet providers rip us off as well.
The ever morphing "contracts" need to be addressed.

Sorry to hear if that's what's in your neighbourhood. I don't have that issue ;)

Long past the time when we should be able to buy only the channels we want to watch . Who needs to have access to channels that are of no interest.

If you look at Bell Cable that is the way they set up their cable they give you a bunch of channels but they are never the ones you want to watch.

Your all stars in my personal soap opera who needs TV when you have the Huffington Post?

You may laugh but truthfully is reality TV any better?

Cable & Satellite? ...that's so last century. Free downloading & streaming is where it's at. I cancelled my cable 1-1/2yrs ago, watch what I want when I want, and don't waste time on commercials. The issues as outlined in this article are obsolete. The discussion is now how will content be generated for movies or continued programing without any income from viewers or advertising.

Cable? What's that? Oh right, that basket of brain-numbing garbage that one pays 80, 90 over 100/month for?

So your life can be richer with TLC, A&E, CNN? Gimme a break.

You know what Wolf Blitzer, Honey Boo Boo, Bill O'Reilley, and the Kardashian clan have in common? Besides rotting your brain?

You're helping prop them up by shelling out up to 150 bucks a month for them to grace your tv room.

And it looks like you'll soon be paying more.

Pick up a book instead.

What is cable?

What is television?

I don't have either; don't need them and don't want them.

Remove the channels. Why should I end up paying extra when the Canadian networks pick-up 90% of the shows on those networks anyways? I can easily live without news from Buffalo.

Really, it is time to ditch this old method of signal delivery. I ditched cable five years ago and have not regretted it one iota.

If I have to pay for cable, I want advert free tv.

I am not surprised at this move by the U.S., I already thought we were paying for them. You know the expression, you can't get anything for free anymore. I do agree with their application, but, I also agree with our right to say to our Cable/Satellite companies that we don't want certain channels.

Ditch cable, get an antenna and or don't bother watching this drivel. If you get an antenna (In Toronto ) you get at least 20 crystal clear channels. The picture is better than cable because it is uncompressed.

What a mess - the only way out would seem to be a la carte pricing.

By all means pay the broadcasters - and - give me the right not to subscribe to them,

Give us Pick & pay now please.

I don't want or need Global, and CTV, I can see all their American content over the air in perfect HD (before they and the cable company's compress the heck out of it.

Yes, if cable consumers are paying for channels that are legally required to be included in Basic cable, then they should have the option not to pay and not to receive these channels, just like they do with other pay channels.

Global and CTV are redundant during prime time. If they were using their revenues to produce decent original prime time programming like tv stations used to, it might be worthwhile to pay for a clear signal. At least CBC produces the lion's share of it's own content and does venture out into programming that the private networks are afraid to touch.

This is why I quit cable years ago.
