What would happen if MTV, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon and the rest of the Viacom family of cable networks disappeared from your pay TV lineup?
Not much, one small, Southern cable company said Tuesday.
I would definitely have to switch providers! I can't live without Comedy Central and Adult Swim
Yea but in the long wrong it would be a bad move on your behalf.Clearly Viacom is trying to charge cable providers too much, and that ultimately comes out of the consumers pockets.
Unrelated to the article I see that the NY Post removed its comment section?!? To quote Obi Wan, 'You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.' =p
They had to; when their writers were lying, they were getting called out on it. Feedback is scary and counterproductive to media. But seriously, that seems to be a growing trend, which is upsetting in the modern era of low quality journalism.
Sounds like the cable company is looking at its cable and internet customers as one lump when its very likely that the latter makes up the bulk, and still has access to those channels through other means. There's some numbers gymnastics taking place in other words.
I don't think it would even matter. I pay for Cable and i watch it 30 min a week at most. I always download my shows or use Hulu+ and Netflix and binge on free time Also apps like Showbox and Popcorn time are even more of a reason to not pay for cable. Commercials are a waste of time. We should have the option to watch a past show we missed without interruption.
I grew up in the 90's and began long ago. TV/Entertainment is DEAD!!! It is disappearing. MTV isn;t even Music anymore. MOVies are unoriginal.
This doesn't really surprise me. I would consider a lot of the content on those channels "background noise" that you can get of equal or higher quality elsewhere.
