I would like to make myself clear... FUCK CBS and all the networks that behave in this manner. The blackouts, massive increases in programming fees which translate into much higher rates to the end-customer and bullying tactics such as requiring auto-hop be disabled are complete and utter bullshit. It has gotten so out of hand that, I hate to say it, government regulators need to step in and get this under control. If a cable company has to get down on its knees and beg for a $2 increase in rates and be ties up in review committees, the actual content providers should be bound by similar rules! If a large percentage of the country can pick up the signals for free with a simple set-top antenna, they should not be allowed to rape the cable/satellite providers as badly as they do. One thing to note also, it indicates "CBS owned networks" across the country, so other A-Hole companies like Sinclair Communications will still hold us over a barrel when their affiliations run out.

On a positive note, yes, it is good to hear we Dish customers will not have to worry about blackouts for a couple of years anyway. Wonder what happens though as we get close to the new deadline :SIGH:
