Lol! That's pretty good. There's probably a cancellation surcharge if we quit the service. ;)

when cable came out they said "get cable tv, and there wont be any advertising". that was the whole point back then (circa 1979). theyf**king lied.

after Ten Years of having the the "100 Channel package" This was one of the 'Epiphanies' that made me ditch Cable TV...

The other was "What Good are '5 HBOs' if they all play the same 10? movies (4 of which you likely can't stand) each on a virtual loop... once you complete that Loop (a rainy weekend would often do it) there's nothing new until the next Month, and that 'might' see 1 or two movies added

The reason is that if they didn't include ads they would have to raise prices substantially.

Also, a lot of people DON'T like commercial-free presentations. They want a convenient place to pause--especially on shows that are more than a half-hour.

Keep in mind that with HUNDREDS of channels available, it means MANY presentations have FEW people watching. They couldn't afford to have specialized cooking shows, oddball sports, etc., if in a particular market they only had 1,000 people watching AND the show didn't produce additional income in the form of advertising paid by local companies.

They're trying to keep up with theaters. They have ads now also. :-)
