And I'd do just the opposite, as would many others, so let's not start that.
But let's take a different tack. Most of what the Viacom channels offer are available online from a few different sources, some free some pay, most being free. So the loss of Viacom would seem more palatable, imo.
For the kids shows, there are plenty of alternatives and in my experience kids aren't nearly so picky about what they watch, the PQ/AQ of it as long as it is noisy with lots of movement and brilliant color. They only get puckered up when their parents complain about other issues.
Actually while I am a very little ticked at losing channels, I'm actually quite pleased that both D* and E* are taking hard stands at the same time. With any luck, the content providers will get the message.
Thus far, since they don't actually send us a bill, they've been insulated from the consumer of their product by the retransmission companies taking the heat.
