Sometimes I am amazed at how much people pay for things they don't watch. I've never paid for cable, but my cable company (which is my ISP) has been trying to shove it down my throat by raising the price of my internet connect, and then offering bundle deals (TV + internet) that are very close to what I am paying for just internet. You know what? FUCK THEM. as far as my kids are concerned, Giantbomb IS TV. They've never even seen "regular" TV.
Not that I am suggesting OP has cable or anything, I actually assume he is not in the US and a sub may indeed be very difficult to come by. But I am not rich, and regularly make decisions about what my family can and cannot afford (and that responsabillty SUCKS), but $50 a year to send a message to CBSi that they should keep the lights on at Giantbomb? Priceless. (Although I assume Jeff knows that he could get that money for a bi weekly, one man podcast, but he likes to think bigger than that.)
