Straight Talk vs. Verizon

How can Straight Talk offer such cheap data packages? Why won't the major carriers bring their prices in line to match Straight Talk? Straight Talk: 25GB for $45/month Unlimited for $55/month I have Verizon and my phone bill with my discount from work makes it around $60/month for 5GB and take about...

Re: CTV News Windsor

CBC Montreal looks terrible on Charter. While the picture is clear, it does does not fill up the whole screen and words are usually cut off.

Re: LMFAO at Kmart!!!!

Grayling Kmart is closing this year. Saw a couple of articles on it. I think that lot would be good for a Family Farm & Home.

Go Home Flatlanders! I Don't Care About Your Shitty Money!

Talk about rude ass bitches! They think when they come up north that everyone owes them something. I am tired of their rudeness and behavior. Some were good but many were not. Retail is a thankless job. Getting yelled at by customers for things you have absolutely ZERO control over. It doesn't help ...

Looks Like 9&10 Is Forgoing News at Noon

Just an FYI, no noon newscast on 9&10 today because of Labor Day. smh... Instead they'll have a Larry King special. Not much of a "news leader" there. But on the flip side, WNEM 5 will have news at noon! Although 5 has it's issues, they are way better!

Re: Is cord-cutting (specifically OTA-only) hard for the Lansing area?

That's a lot of free TV. I could live with that. Pay TV is just bloated with trash. Same shows over and over...most days you flip through the channels and nothing strikes your fancy. Then there are all the channels you don't even watch! From St. Johns using a rotatable element ($30 eBay antenna) mou...

Re: Sirius XM...

As mentioned in another thread, they have terrible and pushy customer service. So, so many horror stories of their shady billing practices when you are trying to cancel. They definitely do NOT make it easy and don't take no for an answer. Adding insult to injury you can't cancel your membership onli...

Re: Sick of those Animal Abuse Commercials

I don't disagree there is a problem with abuse, I get that. But I don't wanna keep seeing those type of ads being crammed down my throat day in and day out. They're just trying to pull on people's heart strings showing sad looking animals and playing somber music and such. I just turn the damn chann...

Sick of those Animal Abuse Commercials

Enough already of these several minute long commercials for animal abuse and things like St. Jude.... for only pennies a day...c'mon! These ads begging for money is beyond ridiculous! Those animal abuse commercials are so annoying that I turn the channel. Who wants to see suffering animals on TV? NO...

Cozi TV is horseshit. The picture is so squished and grainy.

Duke FM's 90's country is fabulous! That's exactly what I want to hear when listening to country radio.

Re: What Are You Watching?

One day when I no longer have paid TV I will be all set with all the boxed sets I have. I many I haven't even watched or opened yet. But they'll be there when I'm ready for them.
