Really? Time Warner dropped HDNET? Really???
Not cool at all! I watched HDNet all the time, especially the Sunday concerts. My inside sources tell me that it was because the owner wanted it pulled from the premium HD package and added to the basic one so that he could get a portion of the $ from all HD subscribers instead of just the few who paid extra for the extra programming. Now no TW customers get it because TW didn't like his tactic to force his way into the other package. No more sunday concerts... no more HDNet movies... I'm sad.. it was the 2nd channel in my favorites list. There was a lot of cool programming on those channels! Boo to you TW and Mr. Cuban from HDNet.. greedy bastards!
Also, I stumbled across an article where TW is thinking about charging for consumption... now if this was for cable programming, I'd be more inclined to think it's a good idea, unfortunately, they are referring to internet usage. Eff that.. I'm paying a flat rate for 7mb and thats that.. It's on all the time and my pc does updates and whatever else.. if they switch to this, they are going to have people unplugging their cable modems all the time to save money. I wish I could pay for the tv that I watch vs. having to pay for the wide array of channels when all I really want is about ten specific ones.
