You are missing the point. Your beef if I understand it is you fell you ar egetting hit twice because not only do you have to pay for the access to the programming, you are being required to endure the indignation of commercials that YOU believe are coversing the cost of the programing. Therefore you believe you shold npot have tpo pay the purveyor(Satellite/cable) of said proramming..dishcomm:
We are most definitely paying for the programming, so I don't know who lied to you but you need to kick them. Just because we ALSO pay for tech/avail, that doesn't negate the fact that the content creators charge the pay-providers a fee to have their programming.
Look, as a cable /satelite sub , we are paying for the signal, technonlogy, talent, rights fees and the cost of production. Like it or not, tv especially in the sports world is very expensive..Without commericals, the programming would be prohibitively expensive.
Once again, this is life in the big city. Turn down the volume and go grab a beer.
