If you are in Canada and subscribe to any TV services, then you should take note of this.
MYTH: THIS IS A “ONE TIME” FEE TO SUPPORT LOCAL TELEVISION TO HELP THEM COPE WITH LOWER ADVERTISING REVENUES
Reality: The TV Tax will have no expiry date and big television networks refuse to guarantee it will be used for local television. The Tax would be up to $10 per month for each subscriber. Once imposed, taxes rarely go away.
I don’t know about you, but my frigging cable bill is still high enough even on basic services, and yet they wanna’ gouge more out of me for shitty service and TV selections.
I maybe watch 4 out of the 30-40 channels they have total. The ones I don’t watch are Indian, French, Shopping channels for infomercials, religious stations, and FOX. And half of the TV shows that I actually do like are from across the pond and I download them.
If they could drop the shitty stations and replace them with the stations that actually have good television, rather than all this bullshit reality TV crap, then it would be worth the money that I’m paying now. But the shit they show now isn’t even worth what I’m paying let along an additional $10+ added on for some bullshit tax.
