POINTLESS.
Hah, exactly. See, my logic is that if I ran Foxtel or Austar, I'd offer every channel for $2. So somebody like me would pay for installation, then ~$10 a month for the sport channels I want, plus the History Channel or whatever they offer for nerdy sorts such as myself.

But noooo, they want me to buy shitloads of nonsense programming. So instead of getting ~$10 from me a month, they get absolutely NOTHING. Geez, that's a great business model. Dipshits.

By the time I get there, I'd just need a full ice bath. And that would be awkward.

Do you want me to tell you I love you again?

Here I was, thinking I was alone in this baseball hatred and that PFan & Co. were soon going to burn me at the stake.

Pretty much!
Up here, they just give you a package of crap and all the good channels are on the next package up!
With cable, you get only basic so all the good channels are on digital! Basic cable is the new air channels and satellite isn't a whole lot better. Especially when it goes out every time it rains!

Hell, sometimes I lose internet access when it rains!

Sure, go for it.

Nope. I despise baseball just as much. I absolutely loathe baseball season with a passion. 'Round here, if all you have is basic channels with no cable or satellite, all that's ever on TV is baseball! There's no point in even turning the damn thing on unless you want to go comatose!

Anyone who hates baseball doesn't deserve U2. I said it.
