6 Things Cable Companies Need To Do To Justify Their Prices
Stop Acting Like HD Isnít NormalA high percentage of us have HDTVs. Itís not some weird new-fangled scientific invention that a minority of early adopters have gotten on board with, nor is it some trend that may or may not catch on. HDTV is here. I donít even know if you can buy a nice new television without HD capabilities anymore. Finding one would be like a Whereís Waldo hunt. So, why the hell do cable companies still treat it like some upgraded perk youíve decided to get on board with? I pay $10 a month for basic HD and an additional $7 a month for top tier HD. Why not charge me for color picture while you're at it?
Itís not about the money. Itís just a slap in the face in the same way as getting charged to bring one bag on an airplane. Youíre not doing anything special or weird by taking one bag, and youíre not doing anything strange by wanting to watch TV the way itís now supposed to come. The cable company shouldnít act like theyíre bending over backwards to offer that service. I would rather be charged an extra eighteen dollars for the channels themselves than get pissed off every single time I look at my bill and see this bullshit.
