How long before our bills go up, even if we do NOT watch this network as a result of this deal?

A&E annoys me - they take a tv show that would normally play on an over-the-air channel say CBS, then bleep (edit) anything that might be too risque - words like DAMN or HELL or BASTARD. We've heard "SHIT" on ABC and many a word worse than those on over-the-air channels. So why edit? Plus the annoying logo and pop-up ads.

Then there's the constant blackouts every time a channel comes up for renegotiation because they demand a 200% increase in their fees. Imagine your cable or satellite bill going up 200% overnight. EEEEEK!
