What I find interesting is that they talk about price per channel and say that prices went up but cable outfits added channels. Well to me that's an increased cost. I'd love to have a company that could force you to buy more of my products whether you want the extras or not, then claim you didn't get a big price increase because the price increase per unit wasn't as big.
I'd rather look at basic cable tv as the entry level product. I don't care if you added duplicate channels with different names, the price for basic service went up.
I will say in the case of D* that the some of the new channels they added recently have new and original content. Examples are Discovery Civilization, History International, and Discovery Wings. Also, the five new Music Choice channels have new and different proramming.
