Greenie and I were having a conversation this morning about how we both have digital cable, but end up not watching the vast majority of the channels offered. We thought it would make a lot more sense if people were given the option to decide which channels we want, instead of being given some pre-determined package. So I'm wondering, what networks can you guys not live without? If the cable companies wised up and implemented this idea, which choices would make their way to your set?
Mine would be:
All the networks, even the WB.
YES (The Yankees channel)
CNN/Headline News/MSNBC...or whatever. Some news network. Preferably not Fox News, though. (Just my opinion.)
All the different Discovery Channels, most notably Discovery Science
E! (Shush. I need to know what Paris Hilton is up to.)
The Travel Channel
The Food Network (I won't live in a world that doesn't include Iron Chef.)
HBO (and HBO2, HBO Signature, HBO Comedy, etc.)
The History Channel.
Whatever channel it is that shows TechTV. (I have to throw my boyfriend a bone now and then.)
PBS, but solely for the Antique Roadshow
Other than those, I'm done. So why am I paying 8 billion dollars a month for all these other channels I don't watch? Sheesh.
Anyway, do tell. I want to know what you guys must have.
