Whoa whoa whoa you need to calm down towards me. I didn't do anything to you.

So, now we have to hear how we don't "understand". As a matter of a fact, I understand very damn well. One thing I hate more then anything is when someone acts like they know what I am thinking. Someone "thinking" they know what best for you. That's why this country is in the toilet hole, because of crap like that.
Great conversation for another place. But I'm not telling you what to do, so I don't know why you went off on that tangent here.

I'm sorry, but that's wrong. They're trying to get paid. Having people switch to their programming is certainly AMONG the things they want, but they know that's not exactly likely. How likely is it that most people leave those things that are comfortable for them and go do something else? Very unlikely. The majority of the money they're going to make from this is from advertising and from other providers PAYING for the channel to keep their customers. They aren't necessarily expecting many people to actually switch coverage. That's less likely than other carriers simply picking up the coverage.

True, so why are you so upset? You can stream it, you can go to another place to watch it... I'm not sure why you're so angry honestly... I'd be more upset if I wasn't already a TWC customer, but I suppose I'm more understanding of the situation the Lakers (as in the Busses) are in. Look at it this way: if this wasn't happening, we wouldn't have the great team we have now. It's a process and you have to be patient with it man.

Well I'm not sure what makes them greedy unless it's greed to want to make the most money you can. Honestly, it's not their responsibility to get coverage to people who aren't on their service. That's DirecTV's responsibility. Or Cox's. Or Charter's. Time Warner did the best thing for their company and the rest of the providers need to come to an agreement. I'm not sure why you're coming down so hard on Time Warner when it's YOUR provider that hasn't come to an agreement.
