Here's a gift many of us weren't hoping for in early price hikes on TV service from some of the biggest cable and satellite TV companies. Just before the new year, Comcast and DirecTV announced they'll be raising prices.
These latest TV service price hikes follow an increase by Spectrum, owned by Charter, which took effect last fall. As with past price hikes, the TV companies blame the rising cost of programming for the increases.
The price increases come as traditional pay-TV companies continue to lose TV subscribers. That brought total cord-cutting households to 40 million, leaving In response, many cable and satellite companies, as well as several content companies, are now offering streaming alternatives to traditional TV service. And several more are slated to debut this year. A new law, passed at the end ofrequires cable and satellite TV companies to disclose the total monthly price of your TV bill, including all itemized charges, fees, and estimated taxes, when you sign up.
You also have a hour window to cancel service without penalty, and you can no longer be charged for equipment you don't use, such as a router if you're using your own.
The law goes into effect in June. Altice Starting Feb. Still, the company is also raising it broadcast TV and regional sports fees.
Comcast Comcast customers got hit with higher advertised prices for TV service and higher add-on fees in December. If you're considering a streaming alternative to a traditional pay-TV package, remember that all of those services have also instituted price hikes—sometimes several times—over the past year. And some now provide fewer channels and networks than when they launched. I've been a tech journalist for more years than I'm willing to admit.
In my spare time I build and play guitars and bass, ride motorcycles, and like to sail—hobbies I've not yet figured out how to safely combine. Sign In. Become a Member. Remember Me. Not a member?

When the story is in the real world, a different set of narrative engineering principles come in to play.
A default is that somehow the filmmaker and crew present their own story of the quest for what we separately see. But there is a problem in this case; the crew has climbing skill and faces challenges just as great. They don't take the same chance of death our hero does, but they take a far greater chance: being the ones that encourage a death and exploit it. This would have been a dangerous choice as counterstory and the filmmaker wisely decided to avoid it. But then what to put in its place?
The choice was the girlfriend story. And I have to say it was a brilliant choice. Just look at the comments next to mine here - she diverts, so the documentary is now a real, folded story: a story about a damaged being that we see in part from the eyes of a compliant lover, trying to write his own story by a public achievement. Within this love story is a drama that I assume is genuine. In addition to the issue of whether the filmmakers are encouraging risk, we have the more powerful story of whether simply being watched ruins it for our climber.
He seems not afraid of public failure, rather his Asperger's fights the idea of having someone else close. Having someone else share the exercise destroys the mechanism he has privately built to process through this mechanical task. So we have a point in the movie where the existence of the movie is questioned on both sides.
For someone who understand's Asperger's this gets to one core notion of love, life and story: when are urges shared? When can urges make stories that matter?
