... but I don't watch it. Not that I don't think it's good -- but I tend to watch these kinds of shows in a cluster. It's annoying to get into a story, and then wait 6 months for its resolution.
So I pay for it, and Honey Boo Boo, and thousands of other things I don't watch to get the few things I do.
So for me, as I'm sure it is for a lot of people; we already have a small portion of our budget set aside for "entertainment" -- and it's not going to go up, just because an exec somewhere wants 15% growth, or is upset that people don't pay $15 for a DVD anymore.
Dish Network has my $85 a month -- but I don't use their "service" to watch things any time, it stinks and I'd rather not use a bandwidth noisy, badly designed wifi to download back shows or overpriced new content - I already have the XBox for that and their network barely works as well.
Media is a "service" -- you pay for a stream, not a single show. If I paid "a la carte" I'd probably spend a lot less than $85 a month. The Media sellers want their cake and eat it too but they can't have it -- not unless they want to start actual journalistic news again and uncover the bank frauds, and all the other fat cat criminals who abuse the system.
Americans have lower wages. We have entertainment fees. So therefore, some of you are going to have to lose our money -- there's just less of it. If the Media wants more, they have to push for higher wages, and that means tariffs and higher taxes on the wealthy.
Or they can arrest people who barely have enough money for an internet connection for downloading crap that they charged me for but I didn't watch yet.
