  1. I have a close friend who works for a cable company here in Calgary – I’m going to send her a link to your blog to see what she says…
    I just want to hear the “corporate” reason why it isn’t possible to implement your suggestion.

  2. It seems like if people could alter their channel choices instantly like that, they’d have no channels subscribed most of the time and just subscribe to the one that they want when their show is on. That’s what I’d do anyway.
    They could process subscriptions instantly, but they’d probably process unsubscriptions only at the end of a billing cycle, after you get billed for them. Hopefully as a new customer (or switching to the new plan) you would be able to initially select the channels you want and thus not have to worry about seeing the Give Jesus Money channel. That dude with the hair gives me the creeps.

  3. Good point, Thaddeus… I’d do that too! Subscribe to HBO to see a movie, decide halfway through that it sucks, and unsubscribe. I guess they’d have to only allow one subscription change per billing cycle or something.
