Apparently, my cable company is doing everything they can to get us to buy digital cable, either than or they just want to mess with their viewers.
The reason I say this it that for the past month they have been scrolling notices on the top of a handful of channels that they are going to move them effective December 12th.
What's the big deal, you may ask? Well, in all honesty, it isn't that big of a deal, except for the sudden decision to move them up into the 100s.
The channels in question are LPB2 (children's public television), some Catholic station, and TV Guide Network. There are a couple of others, but they're so insignificant, that I can't even remember what they are.
Now, I don't watch any of these channels, except for the occasional flip to TV Guide channel to see what's on. So, you can guess that I'm not a fan of them moving that one. As one of the few networks that actually serves a purpose, so it really makes no sense to movie.
This is Louisiana, so there are a ton of Catholics, so the Catholic station has its purpose, but I could care less about it.
LPB2 will be a loss for parents who sit their children down in front of it and use it as a babysitter. What will they do now? Maybe they'll actually have to watch their children?!? *GASP*
Seriously, this is a decision that isn't winning any brownie points with me, but I suppose it could be worse...oh wait, it just might do so.
I read this morning that the local channels haven't renewed their contracts yet. Now, they are working on a deal, but if they don't. Where am I supposed to get my local news and watch the "free" TV stations?
*SIGH* Is it just me, or do cable companies have way too much power?
