  •  I've been begging for a la carte... (5+ / 0-)

    ...since the mid-nineties.

    I'm rather in Kos' predicament. Were it not for sports, there'd be no reason under the sun for me to have cable television.

    •  It's possible to get packages without Fox News... (4+ / 0-)

      In my case, I have no interest in sports,, but my wife demands HGTV, so I can't cut the cord, much as I would like to.

      We compromised on FIOS Select HD.

      No sports channels and ALSO no Fox News, Fox Business News, or CNBC as a bonus!

      •  Getting HGTV online (0+ / 0-)

        isn't a complete substitute, but their website is making more and more material available.  Maybe the two of you could investigate it, if she is comfortable getting content that way.

        •  Last time I checked... (0+ / 0-)

          HGTV's web site was pretty much useless. Old programs, and only excerpts, not full episodes.

    •  we'd drop it if we had reliable internet (0+ / 0-)

      but we don't so we keep it.

      Dawkins is to atheism as Rand is to personal responsibility. Russia Today=FoxNews, Seralini=Wakefield. yadda yadda.
