For the record, I’m one of the people who will be Oscar-free tonight, thanks to the spat between ABC and Cablevision. In place of ABC television, Cablevision is running a “no-TV-tax” promo. But today we get free “on demand” movies.
ABC seems to think that they’re hurting Cablevision, but I’m not so sure. I rarely watch ABC. I never got into “Lost” — maybe someday I’ll rent it. I sometimes watch the latest episodes of “Castle” and “Grey’s Anatomy” on my computer when I need a break. But that’s it for ABC programming.
I don’t know who’s at fault, but I do like Cablevision internet service. It’s fast, it’s reliable, and on those rare occasions I’ve had a problem I’ve gotten very good tech support. And it’s part of a package deal from Cablevision. So, bye ABC. It’s been real.
Update: The drama is over; ABC is back. Whoopie.
