I can’t wait for the day that there is a cable company that sells ad free cable. You get what you pay for. If i want vh1 i pay for it but the best part is i only select the shows i want to watch just like tivo. You can have two ways to have your cable. Subscription or prepaid, You pay per veiw on what ever series of shows you want and you can even purchase local channels for a low price because there is added avertising on dead channels to keep cost down to the buyer. A subscription works the same but with reduced rates on pay per view on shows plus local channels are included. Maybe in my next life time.
