I get where the money is, and I don't like the fact that my town has decided who I have to give it to. But, I don't mind having to pay for what I watch. I just don't want their box limiting my access and quality of picture. Break them up into a line company and a media company. Then call the wire guy a common carrier. I will pay them to keep service and the media as I want to consume it. Definitely, not on the side of the established provider today.
