I don't know how many read my harp on the electric and air car or solar power being a way to get out from under the Power/Money Hungry Fossil Fuel moguls of our nation.
Today I found a new harp! FREE TV!
This has been around for almost 80 years but with the networks who own Direct TV and many of the cable companies having to dip a little deeper in thier pocket. They are looking to cut corners and you know who's.
With so many businesses going under there is less advertising which helps pay for much of the broadcasting that is shown on pay and free tv (and you thaught that check you wrote everymonth paid that!). Well, not all of it. The broadcast Networks capitolize on everything they can and I am sure they have too. I Get It! I also know that many people who prefer Free TV Shops at many of those business advertising on those Free Broadcast Channels.
However! Before the manufacturers of Televisions decided to upgrade our quality of TV veiwing with High Def or Blue Ray, who even knew our Movies suked (I improvised on that word so as not to offend). They wanted to make TV so real it would be like being there. Go just about anywhere for a dose of reality and hope you don't get mugged. Now That's Reality! I really don't think I would want to be in some of those places ( in the movies)with some of that stuff going on, but thats me.
The point I am trying to make is that tens of thousands of people can't affford the high price of satalite or cable which according to the news is going up.
Try taking care of yourself on $794 a month. I do! I do, however, sell on Ebay and my hut is paid for. Still I would like to watch the news occasionally without it costing me $49 a month. Maybe that's not a good idea, it just gets on my nerves.
Free TV is one of the few luxuries many people still have. GEES! When will we have to start paying to breathe! I know TV is not like FREE AIR but that is going to be on the list as soon as someone figures out how to charge for it.
I want to know if I am the only one who thinks this doing away with Free Broadcasting is a bad idea.
