Hey! Are you old enough to remember when cable TV was 1st introduced?
Yeah . . . good times . . Good times.
I mean what was really great about this new service was . . . . now get this.
No Commercials. None, nada, zip, not one single commercial was to be ever shown on Cable TV. This was a very great thing at the time. I mean - WOW!
How was this possible you might ask?
Well this is the really neat thing about the concept.
You see. Because you were paying for the service the Cable Co. didn't need to sell advertising space. Seriously!
And you know things only get better over time. What with all of the millions of subscribers just think of the possibilities. It's mind boggling.
But wait! What happened? Such a great concept, such a great service! What went wrong? Greed you say? But how is this possible we were doing so well ................
