Pse help me understand... commercials pay for the staff and programing. If a tv station has greater coverage due to cable or satellite one would assume that the rate paid for commericals is greater. Sooooo one could assume that Sat and cable carriers would ask for a small piece of the additional monies earned for the greater coverage. i pay twice for cable channels NOW...by being subjected to commericals and by paying for my cable service. If my carrier has to PAY for carrying a commerical- they pass that cost on to me! Therefore, I am strongly against paying more than twice for a given service. PS. If cable or satellite drops a station - that loss in viewers hurts the station the most. I am in favor of commericals paying for the transmission of ANY station content.
