Hm. Even on a seemingly non-phone issues, the phone companies are still imposing their will. Seriously, they're trying to gain complete monopoly over everything. I'm not fan of cable (I don't use it, I think it's overpriced shit =D), but I'm certain the phone company won't be any better (what with how shitty Verizon handles my internet).
Also, I thought the FCC 'regulated' what was on TV, it doesn't seem like it should be puppy dogging after the will of phone companies. It seems like the phone companies are trying to make it impossible for the franchises to refuse to be bought, at least it seems that way to me.
The whole thing makes me wary of what the future holds for us TV-watchers =\
Huh? Signature? What's going on with that signature?
