Too Many Channels

“I only watch 20 channels – why do I have to pay for so many others?”

We agree! You deserve more choice and control over the TV programming you pay for.

In particular, you only want to pay for the channels that appeal to you and your family. But the big media companies have other ideas. They own most of the channels you want, as well as most of the channels you don’t want. And they won’t let you have the most popular channels unless other networks are included in your package as well. They need more viewers – and money -- for these less-popular channels. So, in exchange for permitting WOW! to bring you the shows and channels you want, the media companies require you receive - and ultimately pay for - networks you don’t care about.
