attack the hypocrisy of BB, by all means

but let's not be melodramatic now..."thieves"?

How about my cable company that charges me over $200 a month for internet and cable- now they are thieves!

There are laws about stealing intellectual and artistic property.

Thief is exactly the correct word.

Your cable company is not stealing from the creators of covered property.

You can cut the cable if you think they are charging you too much.

Easy. Don't buy cable, just steal like BB does while the rest of us pay for your use.

I didn't say it was incorrect- I said it was melodramatic.

If so many people do it, and get away with it (even though it's illegal), I think 'thief' is overly harsh of a word choice. I would reserve that for someone breaking and entering, or purse snatching, or stealing the Salvation Army xmas pot.

And I actually am only paying $39 a month for the best package right now, until Sept 2017. Luckily, the builder of my new place had a deal where you get free basic cable and internet for a year when you buy one of their houses. (and I upgraded my packages.) Bonus!

But you can bet your azz when next fall comes around, I am going to be calling the competitors and them to see if I can get a good deal- or I will looking into just having Netflix or something else. I am willing to pay a certain amount- I am NOT willing to pay $220 plus a month though- that is highway robbery. It's no wonder people cheat the system.

But I am also not willing to deal with some hack system that has uploading or streaming issues all the time...I am just not very techy. And I like my live sports.

Honestly, I will pay a certain amount to have a stress- free, easy system with readily available tech help and home visits. It's just not over 200 bucks a month. lol
