Well, as disconcerting as the rate increases for streaming services have been, as long as I'm below $160 a month and the family can still see the channels that they want, it's a win. When I first looked into cord cutting, I changed my Guide in DTV to show me all the channels that I've hidden to cross compare, and I was baffled at the pure amount of absolute **** on the DTV channel guide that on some abstract level, I'm presumably paying for. I'm not talking the ho-hum channels like Discovery Life or MTV2, I'm talking the endless home shopping channels, all those music channels, all the religious programming channels, all of the foreign language channels, and not to mention all those ad banners in between channels. Don't get me wrong, I understand that just because I don't watch the foreign language or shopping channels doesn't mean somebody does and that's why DTV includes them in the packaging. It's that same issue with bundled packages where if you want 1 channel you gotta take the other 5 you don't want. But, on some level, a portion of the fees for operating those channels have got to be passed down to me, the consumer. At least with YTTV, I'm more likely to watch the included channels instead of hiding 100+ of them in the guide. I used to adore DTV but now I just get this feeling it's a sinking ship. Anyone else notice the lack of new DTV commercials? I don't believe I've seen a single ad for the Sunday Ticket or College Football plan this year. Did they even do a free weekend for the NFL this year?
