Re: Choose your own TV Channels package

Well, first the lists are just examples so the talk about TMC can be curbed. Secondly, as for why it won't happen for 20 years seems like BS. I think the company could tailor the costs so it would be comparable to other companies after choosing X number of bundles. That's great that you have the U450 package and that works for you and your wife, however I do not watch the Style Network so there is no need for me to have it, period.
Either way, I'm just looking for people to agree that it's a good idea so maybe it won't take 20 years for this to be put in place. Maybe I'm reaching for something unobtainable, however the full package I have with DirecTV (although it includes a bunch of channels I do not watch) is still cheaper and it has FOX Sports.
I don't know which package you have with DTV, but I left DTV for U-Verse and couldn't be happier. It has cut my bill by half since I no longer have to have a separate ISP and phone company. I had DTV for 2 years and I will say that their customer service is the absolute worst in the business. Is U-Verse perfect, no, but neither is DTV and to say that they are is just plain BS. DTV may be better for sports if you are willing to pay for it since they do have the NFL Sunday Ticket, NBA League Pass, MLS Direct Kick and MLB Extra Innings, but that gets really expensive really quick when you start adding on those channels. For some they are a deal breaker. I get all my teams with my local RSN so I don't need any of those and I'm not willing to pay the leagues any more money to watch an out of market game.
