That was the politically correct way of saying - " Without that advantage we would lose subs and money to D* and Dish "

Another sad excuse for Comcrap to try to say they have more HD channels than Verizon or D*. Confuse people b/w "choices" vs. "channels".

Simple Math: D* 130+, Verizon 100+, Comcrap 37.

What school did Comcrap executives go to that taught 37 is more than 100 or 130? Must be that "New Math" we all hear about.
