    Zillions of channels that get buried with zillions of other channels. Get your channel on DISH in AT250 and you're in ~4 million homes as one of ~160 video channel selections. Price the channel right and get your channel on DISH in AT 120 and you're in ~14 million homes - many of which your one of less than 100 options.

    You can be buried with the zillions or you can be featured with the best.

    And again... most of that content available to watch on your ROKU was first available on broadcast channels... so the content was paid for OR mostly paid for through those subscriptions. Without that revenue stream, then cost of content for your ROKU would go up substantially OR the content would become unavailable. Nobody is creating all that content for free.

    I can't wait for the scrolling messages telling me to take sides and call someone about it. Can we combine these with weather alerts so that only about 20 inches of the 50 inch screen is actually what I'm attempting to watch?

    Last time one of our local channels had a spat with a provider they scrolled a message after every commercial break. Over and over and over. Couldn't zoom it out.
