And stop claiming there is a lack of free market. It is an unintelligent use of the term. A free market refers to a lack of GOVERNMENT restriction. While the market is regulated, when it comes to how content is provided, there is little government restriction other than who gets the airwave rights. The content itself is purely market driven.
You're operating with blinders. Look up free market. It is government OR MONOPOLIES. Or, as another poster pointed out a better word with similar meaning for market realities, OLIGOPOLY. Which TV services are.
I'm done with these arguments as my words keep getting twisted into definitions that are incorrect in an attempt to blunt the argument. Looking back at my posts there a lot of valid points that everyone just ignores rather than coming up with a useful argument - because their isn't one. In my days in corporate america when management did this we called it what it was - deflection. It's been interesting but I've had enough.
