    Cablevision is already way overpriced. I have cable (no premium channels) + internet + DVR and it costs $122 a month!

    So lame – I didn’t switch to fios yet because it seemed like too much trouble for basically the same price, but now I might look into it again.

    We have price certainty for two years with our Sat provider and after that it’s time to head over to good ole Customer Retention…whether or not we’re contemplating switching. I have no problem leveraging the TV content companies against one another and it has paid off every time.

    I’m so glad I just switched to DirectTV

    The remote controls still cost $0.22. If that had gone up, I’d have cancelled.
