I came across this interesting story on MSN.com:
It expresses the way I feel about my cable package — like Bruce Springsteen said (how out-of-date is this!), “There’s 57 channels and nothin’ on.” Now, there are hundreds of channels and nothing on. And we pay out the ear for the privilege of having that many channels to flip through.
It makes me nuts that we’re paying $75 per month for channels that we don’t watch. I’m all for being allowed to pick and choose the ones I want and pay a la carte instead.
Of course, my boyfriend absolutely loves having all of these channels, so I don’t see that happening even if it were an option!
