    Do you enjoy having to pay for a bunch of channels you don’t watch just so you can watch 2 you enjoy?

    I've got the basic package plus a sports package that I pay extra for.

    Here the basic package is 71 channels. Includes ESPN and ESPN 2 but not the others or the SEC Network. I pay extra for those so out of the 71 basic channels there are about 7 or 8 that I ever watch at all. That means I am paying for about 63 channels that I never watch.

    Exactly, now apply that to the internet. Now it makes sense why a telecom shill would want net neutrality to be demolished.

    Sure I'm paying for basic channels that I don't or seldom watch. But there's no difference in what I pay. It's the same whether I watch all of the basic channels or none of them.

    Or you guys could just get Roku or a number of other devices and buy tv as you watch.

    like Co, I'm pretty satisfied with my setup,.. $100 a month for,.. digital phone,.. 60+ internet (100+available),.. basic cable, but that includes all the SF baseball games,.. the price is locked in for another year, don't know after that.

    I added HBO-GO, for $20 a month so I could watch "Game of Thrones",.. watched all the episodes thrice then cancelled after two months,.. I thought that worked out well.

    What's pissing me off, is paying $35 a month for SlingTV.net, it's my only option to receive the pac12network, I'm going to keep it until college baseball is over anyhow.

    What happens when you get a Roku fee because your provider favors sling?
