I don't watch Spongebob Squarepants either.

So, will you be hiding in your basement tonight? Chasing all the kids off your property? Shaking down the little ones for their treats? [snicker

So today is the day for these changes to take effect. Did they? What happened to all the channels in the 300s downward?

Ok, so it seems they are moving to 100% digital thereby forcing you to give them another $5.99 per month for a digital receiver. **** them.

Yup, you still can. The regular boxes like the one linked are not a bad deal. The retail price of the DVRs is beyond stupid. There are pros and cons on both sides of the "buy it" VS. "rent it" debate.

Do you have $6 extra a month? Maybe you need to start charging your pets rent.
