Still, Me-TV has the most market coverage and the most viewers then any other digitnet. WOIO makes the network look sloppy when commercials run too long or ID's are partly played.
Most subchannels are carried on cable and usually require a digital cable box. Satellite providers will not carry subs due to bandwidth issues.

I don't even know how to turn on or operate a cell phone and I have had extensive schooling in electronics. To me they are just toys.
I'm 26, and I have no interest in texting or phones with data plans. I rarely even use my own cell phone.
When Alltel was still around, they offered a pre-paid plan that allowed customers to carry over existing minutes as long as they used at least 1 minute a month. Perfect for me since I only use my cell a few times a month for a few minutes. After Alltel was bought bought by Verizon, phones with those plans were grandfathered and could not be transferred to a new device. I eventually bought a new phone and subscribed to a new Verizon pre-paid plan, but as much as I tried to use the phone, I kept adding $15 a month in order to keep the phone active, and the minutes kept piling up. Eventually I let it run out and switched to my Grandma's old cell phone which still has a grandfathered Alltel pre-paid plan.
Also not to mention Verizon's terrible service. Everywhere I go, I never seem to get more than three bars. Verizon's 3G/4G service is a joke around here. I know a few people that have Verizon's 3G service, and reception is spotty at best. One even lives in a suburb of Cleveland with cell phone towers all over the place, and all he can get is 1 bar for 3G. Now I understand why Verizon got rid of the "can you hear me now?" guy.
