New Methods of Paying for Cable
After moving to New York I was quick to snag Direct TV for the Bronx thanks to my general dislike of Comcast and Time Warner. I don’t mind having a satellite dish unlike some of my friends who are entirely too picky about stuff like that. They said ti would make their home look ugly but since I am living in an apartment I don’t think it’s really a big deal to have a dish sticking outside of my window – heck, I think it’s kind of cool to have my own satellite but that’s just me being weird, I guess!
I like to think that satellite cable television is going to be just as great as digital cable without the burden of having to give money to a company whose ethics I find to be questionable at best. They are doing everything they can to disrupt the Internet to favor their needs which is pretty greedy if you were to ask me. I think they are actually afraid of the Internet due to the types of entertainment services that are cropping up on it, services that are offering a new type of viewing and consuming media and offering their customers flexible payment plans.
See, what I want to be able to do is just pay for a show or a channel. I don’t think it’s necessary these days to have to pay for entire packages. Why not just give us the option to make our own packages where we pay so much for each channel? It’s kind of silly to force consumers into buying multiple packages just for a couple of channels that they may want to watch – in fact it’s down right shady if you ask me. We deserve better treatment and there are better ways to make money!
