Why I Broke Up With My Cable Company

I've never been overly fond of greedy corporations and now I am entirely disgusted with First, Comcast Cable Co. and now with Verizon FIOS. They've been steadily increasing their fees. You can not watch your 2nd or 3rd TV unless you rent a separate box at $5.99 a pop for each additional TV. There's a load of junk channels in addition to other channels that broadcast half hour long infomercials.  I have a HDTV that pulls in all the local channels in HD for free yet while I'm hooked up to cable I have to pay $14.99  for a HD box if I want to receive any HD channels (even the local channels) because they scramble the signal. To Hell with Cable TV. I am canceling my service. My son has been doing this for over a year now and has had no complaints. He a  has Netflix account for $9.00 a month that offers unlimited streaming movies, documentarys  and TV Shows. For his 2nd TV in his bedroom he has a   Roku Box. 
All you need is Highspeed/broadband internet connection and you can kiss cable goodbye.
