and these other cable channels need to realize that this type of greedy attitude they are demonstrating is exactly why people are ditching cable. I left cable a few years ago. It would take nothing short of an act of God to get me back, but removing the stupid bundles would be a good start. I left cable because my family was tired of having to pay huge amounts of cash to watch probably about 3 to 5 channels (other than local TV, which an antenna gives us for free), which were spread between multiple tiers. If we were able to pay for just the channels we wanted to watch (which didn't include ESPN by the way), we probably wouldn't have left. But now that we got used to the cord cutter lifestyle, we're extremely happy without cable.
