We haven`t paid for TV service in years and don`t miss it. We have Charter internet and it`s the lesser of the evils we`ve experienced. It rarely goes down and surprisingly the customer service has improved (like it could have gotten worse). While people waste hours in front of a TV, we actually get out and ... you know ... have a life.

Ha! Great!
But there is another option...don`t.
That`s it, just "don`t". Don`t buy it. You will live quite well without Showtime, HBO or Oprahs station.

I`ve never seen Spartacus or Game of Thrones and I don`t miss them.

Well let`s see. We have Charter. Direct TV. Dish Network. Windstream. A plethora of internet only services, and over the air HD, which in the Birmingham area, is somewhere around 35 channels.

I`d say we have plenty of choices. That being said, I do think our internet is too expensive for the speeds we can achieve.

Unless you`ve got Google Fiber, in which case, I`m super f*cking jealous.

AntEconomist - can you come and teach my MBA class? Cos you make more sense than my lecturer did when she covered oligopolies. You said it all apart from "Barriers to entry" and supernormal profits (which I read about in my textbook).

And why is the cable industry an oligopoly? To start a competing company, you need a license from the government. Once you open for business, you must, by law, carry a variety of channels that no one actually wants to watch (if they did, we wouldn`t need a law requiring you to carry them). Oh yes...the prices you can charge and packages for which you charge are all dictated by the government. Violations of any of these rules can cost you $25,000 per day.

Existing cable companies support these regulations because they keep out competitors.
