We've been a loyal Cablevision customer here in NJ, If only because we don't have any other choice. I want to try Direct TV, but the parents, not being the most tech savy of people, want to stick with 'Good Ol' Cablevision, despite their shifty buisness practicess. So, here's two questions for you. 1)Not knowing much about this, here goes. Is it because of De-Regulation that allows Cablevision to be the only cable choice in certain neighborhoods? If so, is there any chance of getting this industry regulated again? There are plenty of ticked off customers, but nothing to let us organize against this company.. 2)How can we, the consumer, who have limited choices sans getting rid of the TV all together, stop Cablevision from constantly raising their prices? Just saw a local news report stating that the LI division is raising their Prices AGAIN by %10 begining early next year, making them the highest in the nation. Don't know if this is for ALL outlets, or just local ones, but I don't like the sound of it. I mean, can they just keep on raising their price, without giving us something in exchange, indefinetly? We've waited 5 years for Calemodems, only to get them early this year. We still havn't gotten digital cable yet, let alone some popular networks that companies like Time Warner has had for a few years now... I mean, what Gives? Anyone else here in the same boat?
