Comment Only Free Alternatives (Score 1) 2

Yeah, but the problem is that they're even taxing digital downloads so Netflix, iTunes might not even work. The good news is that since tax is a percentage of price, if price is $0 so is the tax. So Hulu might be an alternative to TV, Skype, iChat, Google Video might be alternatives to phones, but it'll be hard to avoid the tax altogether.
