a big dilemma
we have hot triple play. no HD yet.
it is a good practice to call them once a year and re-negotiate the extra packages: sports, HBO, kids…
will try it next week and update if anything good happens
a big issue for me is movies. who offers the best ones?
seems to me YES is the big winner here. HOT movie channels are abysmal. few countries or regions in the world offer such a shitty package for such a high price as HOT. same on them and the regulator who is supposed to protect us. VOD is better, but they can really improve the selection. and the selection process. it still takes about 20 movies for several people sitting around the living room to decide on a movie. and then someone falls asleep.
Magic is a wonderful product. Magic.
if you read haaretz movie recommendations every friday regarding what to record in the following week, for many many weeks in a row, most of the recommendations where exclusive to Yes with some movies shared on both HOT and YES at similar times or slight difference (Friday vs Saturday). this happens too often and also raises a question as to why. i have a sneaky feeling there is some coloration, or perhaps anti-trust issues involved, but i may be really ignorant on this matter. what do you think?
anyhow, this friday’s haaretz summary has much more HOT movies than YES’. this is great! keep it up, HOT. do not stay HOT, stay hot.
