Re: Ergen is an idiot Sorry, I call bull$hit on your premise/argument. TV used to run just fine OTA with just commercials. Then enters the cable co. and their monthly fees. In the beginning that was acceptible because they needed to recoup the cost of the cable plant/infrastructure and to make a small profit. however things have continued in perpetuity where not only does the cable co collect profits for them but also for the networks. So, I am paying for the privilege to have programming I want AND forced to sit through commercials I don't want... again, let me stress this to you... I AM PAYING TO WATCH COMMERCIALS. This all boils down to greedy b@$tards at the networks who want double digit returns (or more)
So, if you want me to watch commercials, reduce the cable bill by a substantial amount or allow me to skip the commercials. Because I am VERY close to dropping cable TV AGAIN.
