I will join the chorus of disgruntled longtime customers and say that I find this move absolutely ridiculous and evidence of a total disregard on the part of this company for customers like me.
For a couple of years now friends and family have asked me why I still subscribe to a traditional cable package. Well, after this move I am wondering that myself.
I am not going to promise here and now that I will cancel my subscription, but for the first time ever I am actively exploring other options, especially since I have now learned that TCM is available on several streaming services like Sling that will not force me to pay for sports channels I have zero interest in.
I would urge whoever is in charge to rethink this terrible decision. I have always been a defender of this company to others I know who are contemplating cutting the cord, but I think those days are over. I just can’t justify a business model anymore that would produce a decision like this.
