I am close to 64 years of age and there are so many channels I never watch.
Fios seems to sell "packages" or promotions that run for a limited period of time.
Would it ever be doable for us to pick and choose what we really want to watch?
I was getting some of the paid channels primarily for my son, since I watch mainly the older movies on TCM.
I watch a total of maybe 10 cable channels and my local channels.
Is picking and choosing a good idea as long as we are paying for what we choose to watch?
I don't need 800 channels if I only watch a dozen or so.
What you are asking for is called a la carte programming.
problem is that the the channels are owned by a small group of companies.
The contracts they have with companies like Verizon state that they have to pay for a group of channels if they want the popular ones.
So therefore, Verizon has to pay for them and they pass the costs on to us.
