i am one person who is deeply concerned about this broadband merger, as i subscribe to time warner’s business class broadband service (which has been exceptional, in both uptime and service). having been a very dissatisfied comcast customer in the past, the idea that i will be forced back into such a horrible situation again with a company that provided some of the absolute WORST customer service i’ve encountered thus far in my professional career makes me very uneasy…

I would love to see a return to on-air TV. The demand is there. On air stations have quadrupled in my area. TV should have never been provided through cable or DBS in the first place. It’s a completely idiotic system. The only reason why it happened, is because the main networks thought they could fend off the new networks, like Showtime. Obviously they failed. What they should have done is partnered with them, and charged them to use their own on-air infrastructure. But now we are stuck with this antiquated system, which takes billions to maintain. There is a huge conflict of interest between entertainment providers and content creators, because it’s the same handful of companies that own it all.
