Well, that's no help. I skipped BB because it was not in HD on DTV for the first 3 or 4 seasons, and where do they do the second run? An SD-only channel. Thanks for nothing.

Other viewers may not be a picky as I am about needing it in HD, but despite the fact that it will not be in HD I fail to see how a program that first ran on a 2nd-rate cable outlet is of any value to a 3rd-rate pay cable outlet, even as wonderful as the buzz might have been. It will not expand their reach to new viewers, and it is not a credible draw to the Showtime/TMC package. And I will have to resort to iTunes, I guess.
It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

Seasons 1-4 are on Netflix for a lot cheaper than iTunes.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Not a surprising revelation; more like common knowledge. Unless you are really ready to go all in and cut the cord, iTunes still seems like a better choice to me. I am not at that point yet, being still all in with DTV. That will change; its a matter of when rather than if.
