Cable vs. Satellite - Wrong question!

Both are as bad. You pay mega dollars for 100's of channels showing mostly commercials! It should be free since you have to sit there and flick through all the drug commercials and try to find some actual program. If you are interested in sports you had better be interested in either basketball, football or baseball because they show the same games at the same time on 20 channels or so. I guess it is just in case?

No, I think the real question is: Where is the free competition? Why don't we have any free competition that would bring the prices down to a decent level?

But of course we have the same situation in all utilities from electric to phone companies. The total lack of free competition! I thought that was one of the pillars of the American system?
