Television service

I was reading a blog post about the dispute between DirecTV and Viacom about the cost of carriage rights or something like that. It seems these disputes pop up every few months between one network and one or more cable or satellite companies. I noticed a lot of people in comments saying they don't subscribe to either cable or satellite anymore, and I know a few people on my flist who don't either. I was just curious what the people here might have to say about that. Please feel free to elaborate in comments about anything related or unrelated to this issue. ;)
