I watch TV so rarely now that it's not worth paying for cable or satellite. In recent years, I only got it for the Laker games, but now I don't even want to pay that much. (Basic plan on Verizon FIOS cost me $60 for the TV part.) I just wish it was possible to pay a subscription fee just for the Laker games to be streamed over the net or something like that. Don't tell me to look for the bootleg streams: these are invariably low quality pictures with lousy video performance. Sure it's free but I'm willing to pay something, maybe as much as $15-$20/month for Lakers in high quality video. But I don't see that happening as TWC didn't pay the Lakers that much money not to be pushing their overall service (and the extra bucks) on us.
