Please note that the reactions from the complete site will be synched below.
Fox is also broadcast over the airways for free, if someone really wanted to watch the World Series they could simply hook up a external TV-Antenna / also its Free HDTV at that / Also a TV-Antenna that can receive traditional Analog TV Signals, is NOT different than an Antenna that receives Digital-HDTV Signals./ However your TV must have a digital tuner.
Ssshhhh! If more people knew that they could receive FREE HD TV programming Over The Air, combined with what they can stream from the Internet (free & w/ inexpensive services like Netflix/Hulu), they would ditch cable altogether! How do you expect these cable companies to stay in business? I mean they were going to raise rates next year anyways, now News Corp. has given them the perfect excuse.
You are correct and I am one of those people not getting Fox on Cablevision, I blame Fox for this, they are greedy and using customers as pawns, Cablevison agreed to arbitration, Fox declined. Bad for business in my opinion.
