Last summer, as we were considering whether to drop cable, I drew up a list of all the shows we watched that were available over the air versus only on cable networks. In our case, the balance was about 80/20. The more I thought about that, the more I resented that I 80% of the money I was paying Comcast was going to them to just repackage shows that are available over free, public airwaves. The current fight Fox and Cablevision are having is funny to me, in this light. If you’re in New York, you’re paying Cablevision to not give you a channel you could be getting for free.
