The cable companies are pointing fingers over channels, they’ve blocked some of the biggest network programming from our service, and we’re missing our favorite programs.

I think my cable provider is very good, and if I had a boat-load of cash I wouldn’t mind paying the outrageous fees they charge me each month.

If you have high speed internet, a phone service and a standard HD cable package you can expect to spend around 2 grand a year. If you add pay per view movies and deluxe channels like HBO and Showtime, Cha-Ching $$

Many families have Netflix and that’s another c-note to your yearly service.

I personally watch about 4 channels on a regular basis (one my provider has taken from me) and the rest I spend flipping through only to go back to my primary ones.

On line steaming through services like Netflix, Sling, Hulu, Prime and a host of others seem to be the way many people are starting to go.

We should be able to pick what channels we want and pay for them instead of having hundreds of them forced on us along with a huge monthly bill.

If I could find a way to get just the programs I wanted, I would drop it all tomorrow.
It’s getting to the point where I’m seriously considering it anyway.

I am all for businesses that take care of their employees and provide quality service to their customers, but this is pure gluttony on the part of the cable TV providers.

I pay my bill each month and I expect  my cable provider to give me what I am paying for.
