Re: Is it Net Losses Across the Whole Industry? I can't say, but I've been cable free since February and I really only miss AMC. I would gladly pay them 10 times what the cable/satellite companies are paying them for service but I am content knowing that their shows will eventually be out on disc or available on Netflix or Amazon.
There are a handful of shows I used to watch that I did like, but they aren't worth the prices charged by cable (or satellite). I may be a little behind in episodes, but I can live with that.
Get an antenna. You won't have as many channels, but the quality is about the same and you don't have to pay a bill every month.
