IFC Ya Later

Time Warner Cable has apparently decided to start making digital cable subscribers pay extra for the Independent Film Channel (IFC) by moving it from the standard digital tier to the “B-list premium” tier that includes Encore and Sundance. While it would only cost an extra $4 a month, that nickel and dime act doesn’t sit well with this subscriber, especially since Trio went dark at the end of 2005 (the former cable channel still exists in an emaciated online incarnation, though).

I swear one day I’m going to just yank all that shit out of the wall and quit cable for good. From wildly unrealistic expectations of sexual frolic fostered by repeated covert viewings of H.O.T.S. and The Beach Girls at age 13 to right this very minute, cable TV has always failed to deliver for me. Why do I keep torturing myself?

Fuck Time Warner. DirecTV, baby. IFC is still part of the regular package, along with Sundance.
