Agree, there is still a want for this, finding a way to do it with the greedy channel owners will be another matter.
You can also use the Hide Channels feature and that gets rid of all the ones you don't watch. I think I have more hidden than ones I watch, come to think of it!
Once your promo is up, call back in and negotiate a new deal. Some people here do that and can give you advice.
I too would really like to see TV "a la carte" -- even if I did pay almost as much. Seems like my cable bill goes up every other month. Mine has almost doubled in the last year and a half -- altho I did up my programming from U100 to U200 (with no "extras"). The only reason I changed programming is because one of the dozen channels that I do watch regularly was moved to the higher tier. Sure every time it goes up they add a channel here and there -- mostly Latino channnels (which I don't watch). BTW, thank you for the "favorites" channel ability. I am so fed up with paying more and more for crap I don't watch. I call it the welfare cable systems. I too will probably dump it at the end of my contract and go with another carrier (I still have a "disc" on my roof). At least I can "start at the bottom" with a good deal then -- for a while.
