This is simply unacceptable. You can try to couch the removal as providing a service but you didn't. I did not receive one new channel because of this. You removed a channel that has been a staple of basic cable service since the 1990s when it was founded!. What you did do, however, is use your power as vertical monopoly to remove viewership from a channel that is part of an ongoing deal to create a competing vertical monopoly with Time Warner and AT&T. This decision is an abuse of power, plain and simple. However you can replicate what should be a standard expanded basic package by utilizing Hulu Streaming and Philo, and that is what I will have to do because you took a channel hostage as a power play between huge companies but everyone knows you don't negotiate with hostage takers. You demand ever increasing fees for ever decreasing service and thankfully people have options outside of your business.
