    I find it interesting that no one has listed Cablevision.  I wonder if everyone realized they sucked and went to satellite.

    Another question would be how does your provider deal with CableCards? I was shocked to find that Comcrap gives me a “free” M-card but requires a $8.00 “Digital Cable Outlet” fee. Stupid thing is that this is regional within Comcrap. Reading around some people have had success saying that they are using the card in a Tv that has a cable box to get picture in picture so it is on the same “outlet” to get the fee waived.
