Get tougher. MUCH tougher.

If a channel shows ads to support themselves, then I don't see why they should even be expecting a cable or satellite carrier to pay to carry them in the first place. Except for locals, without the carrier, these channels have no audience and no revenue AT ALL! If they can't support themselves with the ads, then they should fold instead of expecting us to pay AND watch ads. As it is, we have very limited say in what channels we subscribe to, so in the end we are paying for channels we don't want. There's fifty-seven channels and nothin' on? Please... we now have 2,495 channels that cost and arm and a leg and still there's nothin' on. With regard to local channels, virtually everyone "should" be able to get those free over the air with the right antenna anyway. I can get all but a couple locals with a simple indoor antenna, and can get the rest with an external one, so why would I want to pay a carrier to re-broadcast it?
