I have never subscribed to cable or satellite, and never will so long as they play these games where everyone is forced to order a bloated menu and agree to pay such outrageous fees. If I can pick and choose which channels I watch, and can simply pay for those channeIs I actually watch, I may finally subscribe to cable for the first time-- until then, I'll get by on what is broadcast for free, and what I care to see at walk-in theaters, what is available online, and what's available while I'm at the gym. I refuse to give in to bullies.
I would never watch baseball or football in their present form: hours of sitting and waiting for players to execute a few spare minutes of action... that's insane. If I want to watch sports, I'll watch Kobe and company as they work out vigorously throughout an entire game... or, even better, burn some calories myself rather than be a mere spectator, getting fat on a couch with a remote in hand.
