I just read the a post about the future of Networks being messed up by DVR's and all the heavy competition of all the cable networks,,, BoooHooo I am so sorry for them :lol: I don't know about the rest of you but I am so tired of all the whining and Double dipping from these stations, I don’t give a crap about what happens to them, and let me explain why. When we started out in the 50's and all the way up till the mid 80's there was a kind of Bond between us the Viewers and the Networks. They provided us with good shows for FREE and we watched the commercials and hopefully bought the products. Then came Satellite and Cable and suddenly it was you have to pay for the channels and yet still have to watch commercials this IMO is Double dipping the customer, and I really hate it! The Ironic part is that the more Satellite and Cable grow there is less need for stations to build hundreds of Towers and Transmitters and all the other things they had to do to maintain a national signal, so the new technology is actually saving them from a huge expense, yet they still charge us more! So I have no pity for them. Its a good thing if everyone switches to DVR's and starts skipping all the commercials! They need to just charge us once, either they are free channels to cable companies and Sat providers and therefore cost very little to add to my package or they remove the commercials and keep charging me like they do now. So are you tired of paying for TV, while still having to skip through a mass of commercials or worst yet have to watch them?
