What happens when Politicians get paranoid of the people they are SUPPOSED to represent? We drop all the laws that were created for our freedoms.. Laws are not used EQUALLY.. A Society.. based on information, GETS no information.. And those that release ANY information end up in jail
For all the money these folks have spent...Which they Got from the Customers. How much to update their system? How will they rank in the next 10 years if they dont START updating their system. GET customer service that works.
How this started.. A bunch of local small companies setup TV service in the area..And a BIG company dives ion and buys they out After the systems have been out there along time. The problem here is FIXING failing sections of each of these systems. REPLACING an old 40+ year system is expensive...this is NOT PATCHING.
For all the money they are paying out to fight this. Even if they were Still only doing CABLE TV, they would still be replacing Tons of wires.
Ok.. The prices that CABLE pays per channel has been posted. its on the net and soforth.
If you dump all the channels you DONT watch and those you seldom watch... The odds are you only have 15-20 channels. And if you paid $1 per channel, which is more then cable Pays for those channels..Would you be happy, and cable still making a profit?
And WHy are there contracts that REQUIRE, me to have channels I dont want to watch?
And if you had better encryption, your system wouldnt be hacked.. And other precautions, would make your system more secure against SPAM/Malware/BOTS... Love it when Clients, have FULL write privileges to the Main server..(FAIL)
Iv tried to explain encryption to people based on wireless/BT.. Encryption is a good/bad thing. Passwords and encryption in a poor circumstance, is a BAD thing..and does not work. Fair passwords and encryption, only delays what will/can happen. Good passwords and encryption, takes TIME to solve.
Thinking your wireless/BT headphones are encrypted? is a dream. There may be a small weak encryption, but its very weak.
Encryption, SLOWS things down.. its like having ZIP files..and you have to open each file to use the file or see a picture.(ZIP is weak protection) Never think that wireless is protected...there are HOLES in how to listen to it. Encrypting a system, is/can be a good thing. But backdoors, are built into many products, called a reset button. without that button, if you have a problem its hard to fix many things. the problem with that tends to be EVERYONE knows that.
Option E.. replace Cable and sat with local broadcast..
Cost $60-100 1 time fee.. ----------------------- I use broadcast tv..I get 4 PBS channels.. How do I loose PBS on almost all of these options? And Fox, NBC, CBS, ABC are generally local broadcast.
And all these other options dont even consider, that you DONT WANT the net. red box on the corner, or near by. A cellphone to order from other services. ---------------------- That graph is very limited and its trying to confuse things..there are MANY other options.
Mounted antenna, high enough to see over most buildings in area..$30-50 Signal booster for signals to 50 miles...$50 Ask grandpa about setting it up.. DONE.
And I will bet that Many city dwellers can get 40+ channels..FREEE!
Dont companies and corps get w write off for Estimated theft? With this software I would NOT give them a write off.
Its Standard procedure in all business to anticipate a Loss prevention of Upto 10% of sales. Anything below 5% is great.. but with the Over priced goods in the USA, they are anticipating a Net loss of 30+%..(which means goods are 3 times the price)
Lets ask some questions about this first. WHAT are the costs to Cable? 1. they PAY to have channels. Iv posted the rates here and other have also..Average payment is about $0.20 per channel. except for ESPN which is $5.
2. they pay for maintenance.. and this is generally the fun part. as we PAY for them to hook us up to the lines $40-120..
Now the question. HOW much of my cable bill is NOT for channels? There is a Box fee..
Something to ponder. IF' cable paid out for ONLY what customers WANTED... how many of the channels would go away? IF you have a BASIC PACKAGE, and it includes ESPN...they you pay $5 per month for ESPN...even if you dont watch it. ESPN used to be an EXTRA/addon package. You Paid for ESPN, if you wanted it.. NOW its part of the basic package, and everyone Pays, every month.
IF' cable paid out, Only for the channels, they were watched For Each customer..Wouldnt that LOWER the payments they make to ALL the channels? Or are they over charging us for those channels int he first place?
MATH TIME.. (1)What you are paying (divide by) Number of channels.
Now. Look at the channel line up...ALL 200-400 channels.. Subtract all those channels you dont want, Wont watch, NEVER watch.. count the number of channels you do watch... NOW Multiple by the payment per channel..(1)
So, you are paying about $4-5 per channel..
NOW, how much do you wish to Bet... That that COMPLICATED (POS) Box you have in your home, KNOWS what channels you watch, and sends Data to the cable company, and the cable company Only pays for what you watch?
NOT for all the channels. But you are Paying for ALL the channels.
Isnt this why laws in the USA, for Corps, STOP things like this? IN the USA you can not take an individuals money, if you are filing against the Corp..And you can not prosecute an individual if its a fault of the corporation..
Even IF' the person was at fault..you have to have 110% proof that only an individual Created the fault on purpose and with forethought..
