CFN – I did something I swore I’d never do this weekend. I signed up for traditional TV signing with Shaw Direct instead of Bell or our local Cable company Cogeco. (Bell didn’t answer their phone within 5 minutes and Cogeco is just wrong – a horrible company in my opinion.)
It was an easy decision to go with Shaw as I’d used their service the last time I had TV which was over three years ago. There was no long term contract or bs offers; no bait and switch. As a consumer I liked that even though the content package was a bit better with the other guys.
Life was pleasant during the three year interim. No withdrawals, but I cover Hockey and politics and I needed that extra bit of content.
Everyone knows that TV is moving to the net, but it’s not quite happening fast enough. Frankly what I’m worried about most is being corrupted by 24/7 really bad TV offerings; reality shows in particular.
Here in Canada if the average person wants phone, internet, and TV in their home they’re looking at over $100 per month and closer to $200 unless you’re on the bare minimum plans. Scary huh?
Maybe that’s why people don’t go to as many live events?
So dear viewers of CFN, do you still have cable or satellite TV? Do you have internet in your home? Home phone or just go with a Cell?
