No idea. What is available streamed on the Roku is the same channels package I get as a subscriber, and I don't (nor will I ever) pay to subscribe to any sports package.

I'm already being ripped off by TW for plenty of sports channels in which I have no interest whatsoever, the Dodgers being at the top of that list.

Also, CSPAN has an HD feed. We have to pay for all these sports channels, yet a feed like CSPAN that is very inexpensive can't get an HD spot on Time Warner.


And we wonder why the American public is so ill informed on most issues and has such a low participation rate in voting. Unless it is about Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian, count on the public being ill informed.

Effective Jan. 1, the cable company (TWC) – which has a major Charlotte administrative office and serves about 50 percent of local households – will charge subscribers a new $2.75-per-month fee for sports programming. Other changes include a 9-month-old broadcasting TV surcharge increasing from $2.25 to $2.75 per month, and an $8-per-month Internet modem lease, up from $5.99.

Subscribers who pay for HBO movie channels selectively on an “a la carte” basis will see those rates increase on their bills from $14.99 to $16.99. Customers who get those channels as part of a package deal will not be charged more.

Ouch. Does that mean this will go to everyone like L.A.?

Imagine that. It was only a few years back that I decided to buy my own modem to save what was then just a $3/month monthly rental for the Internet side of my phone/internet Arris telephony DOCSIS 2.0 modem.

And now it's going up to $8/month for a DOCSIS 3.0 modem, which is a 33% rate increase for something that was only recently priced at $6/month. And a 167% increase over the original $3/month price just a few years ago when they first started charging for the internet modem hardware.

Makes it that much easier to cost-justify buying your own modem.
