I don't know what that is, but I'm sure if I lived there it would piss me off.

For my part, it was Comcast, who originally included the NFL Network with the regular cable package I was getting ... then one day it stopped coming in and they said I'd have to pay $14.95 a month to "upgrade" to the special sports premium package.

No, that's not an upgrade, I told them, you're just changing the rules to rip me off.

I'm sorry you're unhappy sir, but the only way to get the NFL network is to upgrade to the sports premium package for only ...

Anyway, guess who got canceled in favor of DirecTV?

I canceled TWC and switched to Dish Network. Problems (NFL and Big ten Network) solved.

Whoops! Moved into a condo that does not allow Dish of any kind.

Back to the sports bar for me!

I'm pretty sure it's illegal for them not to allow a dish. There was a big anti-monopoly court case about that, because inevitably Comcast was going around to apartment managers and homeowners' associations and paying them to ban dishes, effectively eliminating any competition. Legaly, they claimed that they were just entering into thousands of tiny "exclusive franchising deals," instead of what they were really doing, which was essentially bribing people to maintain a monopoly.

The end result was that the court decided nope, that's bullshit, and the homeowners association can't ban dishes unless it has a damn good reason, like safety or because it obstructs something. You may wish to look this up.

Only potential pitfall: I can't remember whether that was a ruling that applied nationwide, or only to Comcast, or only to certain states.

Already did. I'll concede this point to the association.

I was extremely upset when I found out that Comcast was no longer going to be airing the NFL Network. It was bad enough when they put it into their stupid "sports package", now they're removing it all together. Bastards.

If they own the property, outside of building you can't hang a dish on their property. But if you have a balcony, porch or something like that where you can put the dish. The hoa can't do shit about it. I think it goes something like that?
