Sling's packaging strategy seems to be to pit some big content providers off against each other, particularly in the realm of sports. The $20 package has Disney properties, including ESPN. The $25...

At least Blockbuster didn't require prospective customers to hand over contact information before they would even be allowed to browse the shelves.

I remember when the music was good enough that awards shows didn't have to rely on a lot of expensive visual enhancements to keep the viewers' interest. That was a long time ago, though.

I'd much rather watch "Duck Soup" than "Ducky Dynasty". TCM is one of the few cable channels that has stayed true to its original premise. I really dig the 1930's movies.

Bah. Those shows are just too kissy kissy toward the ruling gurus and fat cats. They make me want to watch the 1938 film "You Can't Take It With You" again.

But the case could still go to the Supreme Court or the FCC could change its mind about the regulations. I don't really understand how "net neutrality" could work. I mean, who paid to lay all those...

The Walking Cub logo will become very popular, but can the team find a way to do it in powder blue with pinstripes? How would those look in high definition?
