Posted on 03/13/2012 5:41:12 AM PDT by EQAndyBuzz
After seeing what happened to Rush with the Left and how the media, especially HBO treats women, I decided to do something about it.
I got rid of my Time Warner Cable and got AT&T U-Verse package. It saves me over $100.00 per month and I don't have to deal with HBO and their hatred of women.
Today I will write a letter to the editor of my local paper telling them what I did and why. If we can all do the same thing, maybe, just maybe it will make a difference.
Why HAVE it? Most of the programming is nothing but trash anyway. The cost for satellite or cable is overblown. The time spent in front of the idiot box is better spent in other activities.
The positives of a tv-less life far outweigh any illusory ‘positives’ of what passes for entertainment today.
When we first got cable in the 80s, we had HBO, Cinemax and Showtime.
HBO had movies, Cinemax had softcore porn and Showtime was all gay all day.
Didn’t HBO fund and show first “The Sopranos”???
Talk abt a misogynist show...
though I’m sure some guys didn’t mind it, the way women were treated in that show, whether it was “real life” or not, was disgusting...
I dropped HBO 6 months ago.
There's always teh Torrentz.
We’ve all been conned and hoodwinked.
Remember pay TV, commercial free we were all told about 30 years ago?
You’re now paying to watch endless commercials on television, which have already been paid for.
Time Warner/HBO still gets a vig.
I’ll bet HBO is on both packages soooo....not sure it matters other then you saved money. congrats.
If “you” spend money on cable and yet cant at least match that as a contribution to a charity or church...then decide which is more edifying and pick one payment each month. If you are going above and beyond then my warmest regards to you.
Yes, you have a point about “hating women”. Rome was a great series but they used the C word so many times, my wife refused to watch it with me.
I agree. I enjoy the History Channel, Discovery ID, the Military Channel and the Sportsman Channel.
Actually as fan of fantasy fiction novels I’m kind of looking forward to the new season of Game of Thrones.
I also really enjoyed The Band of Brothers, Mike Tyson fights and even the grittiness of Deadwood.
