Within the last 2 days Cablevision has made these channels unavailable to people with no box. Why do they do this? To make people spend the extra money to rent one of their boxes? I've refused for the longest time to shell out an extra $7-$8 a month to rent one of their boxes. However, a family member in the household decided to rent one (basically, for Soapnet), so i went to pick it up for her and find out there is ANOTHER charge besides the monthly price for the box?! They called it the "star" something service?! I've rented boxes for other family members before (within the last year or so) and never heard of this charge.
