Viacom had a similar situation with DISH Network a few years back.

NOT SPONGEBOB!!!!

Who the hell still has cable? And what the hell is Time/Warner cable anyway? Only cable I ever had was Generico Cable, Installed By Bob. Bob, for all your cable installing needs.

As soon as My Friend Rabbit comes out on DVD, I'm chucking my satellite service for good. Cable? That's for suckers and old people.

the only thing i have from my cable company is broadband internet.  I've been without cable for six months now, and i don't miss it one bit.

They sorted it all out anyway, so nobody lost anything.  Except maybe some kiddies had a few anxious moments about possibly losing their Nick.

I'd love to get rid of cable and just have broadband, since I hardly ever watch TV.  But what I do watch, I would miss too much.  So it's not really an option for me.

I don't have cable or a dish.  I sometimes have to go to a bar or a friend's house to watch a few games a year.  That's the only time I miss it.  Even then, you would have to also buy NFL Network and such for what I'm talking about.

My family stopped getting direct TV a few months ago because of money trouble and i haven't really missed it,$50 a month and ten minutes of every half hour was a adds not to mention that they run adds over the last minute of every show.  I'm fine just waiting for the shows to come to dvd with no adds.

At least with satellite radio you don't have to deal with commercials. Television and the Internet are still an absolute deluge of non-stop ads. Thank goodness for ad-blocking software, it gives me at least a modicum of peace online. :)

I'd probably be perfectly happy getting rid of my television altogether and just watching movies and DVDs from time to time.

I love my XM radio.

The music doesn't have any adds and laugh USA and Radio Classics don't have nearly as many as TV.
