I would consider it a blessing to have all Fox related channels off my TV PERMANENTLY!

I pay less than a buck a month for Fox and four bucks for ESPN.

Give me Fox for a dollar kill ESPN and keep the change.

Sports shows are sooooo gay. Yak, yak, yak, yak...

Isn't it ironic that liberals preach all day about tolerance and open-mindedness, except in the cases of those that don't agree with them?

Who needs Fox? It's mostly old Simpsons reruns, with the occasional ball game thrown in.

I find all of this incredibly ignorant of Time Warner to think we can't just go and by a $10.00 digital converter and watch this channel for free and do away with cable completely. Time Warner Cable is a rip-off. I got rid of them after they raised their rates yet again and gave nothing in return. They and other cable networks pay very little for what they have and rape the consumer at every chance. I will never go back to Time Warner.

Unfortunately, Murdoch the propogandist is going to keep FUX NEWS and FUX BUSINESS. Brighthouse should purposely take those off as well, if its not an all or nothing. I only watch TB Bucs , so I am not missing much. Shows I watch, I buy on DVD anyway. I do not like tv ads.

I do not know about you . I have a deal I pay 99 with box. I get landline nationally,hi speed internet and cable. I do pay extra for a few premium channels[hbo,showtime and starz]. I think its a great deal. Plus I get HD for most of these channels and ondemand free for all of them including premium. Customer service is available all the time , not like verizon where they are closed after 5 and on weekends. I like Brighthouse and staying with it, even if FUX never comes back.

$99.00....REALLY, WOW.
For $10.00 (once) you can get a converter box. For $9.00 a year you can get phone service with Magic Jack. For another $9.00 a month you can get NetFlicks and watch whater you want, whenever you want. You are really fooling yourself thinking you are getting a deal, but my new years resolution is to be more tolerant of ignorance.

I'm sorry, did you have a point? My point was that I would not have a problem if my cable provider did not carry Fox. I did not state that the same should apply to everyone else, that would be preaching. BTW, what in my statement indicated that I agreed or disagreed? Funny how you constitutional conservatives always resort to putting words into us liberals mouths in order to make your point. Still upset that there is a black man in the White House, does't it. Sucks to be you.

Things like this will only get worse now that Comcast has bought NBC (the only network on Comcast that charges for their On Demand while all other networks provide for free - those shows that they actually provide). Why the big fight, anyway? They're only gonna jack up the rates to the subscribers.

Settling was the worst thing TWC can do. These companies that were getting exposure on these cable companies, were doing it for free. TWC should have set a precedent and not the other way around. Now every network will come out of the woodwork and ask for money . These networks are making money from ad dollars based on viewership. I am dissapointed my cable company caved.

We should be fortunate if all cable and TV were disconnected so people can actual live life rather than sit and watch a box.
