Re: AT&T Raises U-Verse TV Rates I see, you only value people who have U-verse and seem to be happy to have rate increases every year.
Red Flag anyone?
I rest my case, end of story, QED
Oh, by the way, this in not a U-verse forum.
You lost this one texas. Anyone who is okay with what has become an annual 10% increase with most TV providers is shady. His point is that these blanket increases need to stop. I personally would love to see ala cart come to fruition so I can pay for only the channels I watch, which would probably number 10 to 20, not the several hundred I have on DirecTV. Then if a channel wanted to raise their rates, I could just drop that channel if I felt they had reached a price that I felt their programming wasn't worthy of.
I have not lost anything since I am not in competition with anyone. I'm simply voicing my opinion about a price increase by my service provider. Since I actually have the U-verse service and I am impacted by the increase, I'm offering my personal viewpoint. I don't expect everyone to agree with my viewpoint just as I don't agree with others viewpoint. There actually is no right or wrong viewpoint to have. Some just seem to think that their viewpoint is more valid than others, and if you don't share their viewpoint, you are obviously some kind of troll or corporate shill.
The vast majority of us can't simply make 60 dollars more appear every year out of thin air.
Do yourself a favor and hang out with some poor families for a while. You need a reality check.
