    Lock if i'm late but....

    So i'm watching the end of The N.O. game and they run some ad saying this crap!!![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Didn't Time Warner try to pull some crap like this last year??

    I might have to look into fios or something if this goes through.

    Fox wants a price increase of 300% to carry the network. That means a higher cable bill for you. I barely watch Fox or TV for that matter. I am siding withTime Warner on this one.

    More info: http://rolloverorgettough.com/

    I had read that the local Fox affiliates would not be affected.

    you can still pick up basic fox w/o your cable. but yea, there was a thread earlier this month. if fox gets what they want, expect nbc, cbs, abc to ask forhigher price when their deals come up

    Watch it OTA. Watching broadcast channels OTA is better than cable and satellite. Better quality and no 2 sec delay.

    Networks and cable companies getting greedy! They bumpin heads over money, and making the consumer pay for it. Boycott both Fox and Time Warner!!!

    if you have an opportunity to get fios, you should really get on it. i see no benefits to regular cable, unless the undercut monthly rates to keepyou as a customer.
