I just spent half an hour on Comcast’s, DirecTV’s and Dish’s websites comparing offerings. My conclusion is that they don’t exist to provide a product or quality service. They exist to extract the greatest amount of money from “customers” through lack of competition. I don’t watch a whole lot of TV but I do watch some and for me I don’t see how any of the packages are remotely worth my money.

I’ll be spending the next little bit seeing what’s on TV that is also available on the internet and then how to stream that from my computer to TV, or set up my smart TV to automatically get it. I know The Daily Show and Colbert Report already stream online one day later. Now to find other good content that doesn’t require 2 year agreements or signing up to pay for a whole bunch of channels I won’t watch.
