I can wait for DVDs or Blu-rays of True Blood and Boardwalk Empire to watch them, but might be a limited market for release of the other shows, even though I know "American Pickers" is out on DVD. In other words... I'm conflicted as to whether I'd suffer "withdrawl" by dropping the Dish.
What is turning me OFF of most "cable" channels is they are straying from their original formats. Even BBC America no longer lives up to its name, by not hardly showing ANYTHING BBC, or actually from England for that matter! I mean... Star Trek:The Next Generation?? WTF?? I watched them when they showed British comedies and Eastenders, but haven't watched them since! Even when National Geographic Channel had a "free preview", my mom, who doesn't normally have it in the package she subscribes to, said "Why the f**k is National Geographic Channel showing non-stop "Lock-up" shows, instead of nature and space stuff?!?"
At the moment, I'm not in front of the TV... listening to "The Tim Conway, Jr. Show" on http://kfiam640.com/ online instead. Not CRAP to watch on Dish!
