My house used has cable service from CXX, which is the biggest cable company also in Cayo n' Belmopan. from di end of last month, my grandpa told me all the asia channels are disappeared, I thought it may be temporary problem, until last week I called cable company and ask di them wha da happened with Asia channels, Di lady told me from now on IF I WANT TO WATCH ANY AISA CHANNELS, I HAVE TO PAY EXTRA MONEY TO BUY DXXXXXX BOX!!! only chinese people need that box if we want to see Aisa channels, after I told my grandpa and we decided to go switch cable company to CBC.
My question is how fu u guys feel one day Cable Company ask you to pay extra money to buy tv box or u won't see any Spanish /Arabic /India channels? Can I say dis is Premium service or I should say Discrimination?

It is common for special language packages to cost a premium. For example, if I want the Spanish channels (24 of them) it is like an extra $15 or 20. Its called ala cart pricing. Same with Dish and Direct. By the way, my cable is about a hundred a month with no asian channels. What do you pay?

If you have direct can you hook up a Tivo?
