Dynamike: This would have been a more honest letter to send:
"Dear Stock Unit
We increase the cost of our subscriptions every June. This year will be NO exception.
We are working hard to decrease the value you get from our services.
We have reduced the number of channels available to our basic customers. This includes Triangle Stratos. This trend will continue with the removal of TVNZ 7 at the end of June.
As programming is purchased in US Dollars, the cost to us of purchasing programs has reduced. We have decided to pass these benefits on to our shareholders rather than to our customers.
We have increased the advertising content on most channels. We intend to continue adding more advertising content over the next twelve months.
Our iSky service continues to hold the Internet rights to our programming. This ensures competition from rival companies will not occur using the new UFB platform.
We have finally added closed captions. We should have done this since day one, but we really don't care about deaf people.
And I can't quite understand people saying "You don't like it, cancel it." Or like Mauricio incorrectly put: "you have other options".
Sorry to say but, no, we don't. Name one other provider in NZ that broadcasts Formula 1 (as an example), legally.
I'll wait. :)
Just because we subscribe to it, doesn't mean we can't be unhappy with some of their decisions. It's only natural.
