Two words to News Corp… Fuck you!
Well, this doesn’t came as a surprise since other TV providers like Time Warner and the rip-off Dish Network are having the same problems with Broadcasting companies like Fox. It seems that Fox, owned by News Corp. wants more money from Cablevision when they already make a lot of money. Now they want to pull Fox Network from Cablevision tomorrow in protest. It makes me wonder, how low could News Corp. go? I bet they needed the 80 million dollars to support the GOP campaign and the Tea Party, so they needed to raise the transmission fees for Cablevision.
I’m with the providers with this one. It seems that the broadcast companies are becoming too greedy. The increased broadcasting costs are only going to get passed down to the customers, which always seem to get shafted.
Also, don’t say that it only happens to cable providers, it can happen to any TV provider. So, if they think I am going to switch away from Cablevision, the answer is no. In the end of the day, it’s the same old shit and satellite providers rip you off more than cable providers. So why bother?
Too bad this didn’t affect Fox News…
