      I have heard rumors that it’s due to growth. Some think the business model was based off of small margins but high subscriber count. Subscriber count didn’t meet goals so plan be is high margin, lower subscriber count. Just speculation.

    Very unhappy that we are getting such a significant increase, expecially since we do not live in an area that has local channel availability
