Maybe someday you'll get HBO Comedy. Cox has had it for at least four years now. Who knows how long they had it before I was here.

Prepare yourself for six hundred reruns of NFL Total Access each day.

I set the season pass to only save one ep.

Shame they don't provide enough info for TiVo to tell it's the same ep being repeated. I set it to record first run only, and it didn't change anything. Guess that same ep will just keep getting recorded and deleted each hour it doesn't conflict with something else.

Cox just added it here in Oklahoma City this month. I''m signing up for the digital package so I can get it. (I'm really desperate for some football.) My wife's okay with it because they also added SoapNet. :rolleyes:

Cable is always playing catch up to satellite. Hell, they still aren't 100% digital and we have been since 1994. To each his own.

Not quite the same thing dipjet. Cable started with the locals 40 years ago and have made little progress since then. The only thing that keeps them improving is us. And even then they are always behind. And, Directv has more than 98% of the locals covered. Got any more to say?

Really? I thought you were a DirecTV subscriber. They don't list it here (http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/see/MovieChannels.dsp#hbo).

The thing that pisses me off most about cable companies is their constant "negotiations" to get contracts to give consumer channels. Just like this NFL network debacle. DTV has had it for a year.

How about my local HDTV channels? Sorry, won't get those for a few years or so. We are in "negotiations". ****ing gonifs.

DirecTV was the first to have NFL Network. Hence Skip's jabs. Are you drunk?

It's in the basic package with Directv. No extra charge either. Oh, yeah, we were first with it, as usual.

A majority of the KC market will likely be getting the NFL Network next summer, after Time Warner trades the market to Comcast (not a done deal, but very likely). To be honest, as much as I like some of the shows on the NFL Network, I'd rather live without it and keep TW than have to deal with Comcast's horrible net service, and terrible program guide GUI.

There was a show about cheerleaders trying to win the the beach bash or whatever it is called on NFL Network. They were playing flag football and tug o war in bikinis. Lot of bouncing boobies. But ya know it is good for football stuff too.

The only reason cable > sattellite is the internet service. As of now, the fastest an average Joe can get is cable internet.

It's not like you have to subscribe to the television programming to get the Internet service.

At least, with Cox Phoenix you don't.

No, of course you don't. At least in the 6 states I operate in. They try to strongarm you into their TV service as well but I would too if I had a shitty product I couldn't sell otherwise. What do you think Topjerk?

Yeah, like its such a strange concept to offer discounts on bulk or packaged services.

I agree. If I had something good and something shitty, I'd try to make my customers take the shitty in order to get the good. Good job :thumb:
