I don't know if this is a stupid question or not but how do dish and cable companies get the channels they broadcast?
i know you can't receive them with an antenna

i feel like tv is too expensive
i'll give it free to residential
and charge for digital channels ch.100 up
and charge businesses even for channels i don't put digital
you get 99 non digital and 100 up is the pay for digitals
it will bring a little profit

you do know how expensive installing the system will be? you can pay for tv the rest of your life for just about what you will be able to install this system for.

Where is the mention of the needed decoders and the fees you will pay monthly. quarterly, yearly or so (most programming is NOT FREE), the licensing, govt and regulatory permits, insurance and such?


Trust me, this is NOT going to happen and really comes off more as a scam or a severe underestimation of what it is you think you can do.

Then I sincerely and apologetically retract the SCAM comment BUT stand by the severe underestimation. Sorry, just being very truthful.

so then you know that cable and sat companies PAY the stations for the rights to carry them, right? ESPN gets $2-3 per subscriber for example.. if not more.

Mentioned in post #11 and still not sure what the answer was on that. AND those rates are foe the BIG BOYS; he would either likely be denied or charged out the KRAZY ASS.
