No More Package Bundling of Networks - What happened to choosing what you want to pay for or see on Television?
Why do I have to receive and pay for television stations I don't want or watch or listen to? I don't shop from TV, I live in America so I understand and speak English, why do I have to pay for Spanish stations or Russian News or Chinese News or Korean News? I thought CNN or World News or BBC News covers most international news so why do I have to pay for stations I can't understand? Included in bundles are "public interest stations" such as Religious programming - I don't want to pay for Christian ministries or any other religious ministries. I don't want to pay for infomercials, shopping, religious or reruns of sitcoms. I've only lived in rural Tennessee for two years and already I can see how bias the availability of services are here. I cannot get Verizon internet or FiOs. The only non satellite is ATT DSL which, sorry but ATT lost my business over a decade ago and now because I cannot get a good signal I have no other choices. Furthermore I can have either DirecTV or Dish... that's it and along with that the lowest amount to receive multiple stations I don't want including NOT receiving stations I do want for $30+ dollars/month. That's bullying... so if I want local network news, weather channel or CNN I have to purchase a multitude of mindless garbage - that's not consumer friendly. I as well as everyone else is being forced to purchase the use of TV stations that we don't want or need. DISGUSTING!
*I as well as everyone else *are... sorry about the bad grammer
