"A few sports channels"?  It appears that every sports channel except 
the ESPN Archives or whatever it was called is still on basic cable;
I'm not a sports fan (I won't be watching the so-called big game
tonight, and I taped the "Ebert and Roper-without-Ebert" show from 
channel 9 Saturday 
knowing that the Sunday-night airing will be delayed or absent,
and I will probably view it while this game is on) and
therefore would gladly make this trade-off: ok I'll rent your silly box IF
you take all the ESPN's, Comcast Sports, Fox Sports, Golf Channel, and any
others I don't know about off my system AND my bill.
