Letter: Bring back cable

Cable TV was awesome. The best. Never had to worry about weather or bandwith, or whatever else causes my Yukon TV to pause and spin-cycle before reacquiring a station. I never had to enter a username or password to get service because something else gets stuck. I could scroll through 60 channels in seconds without inadvertently changing times and confusing the whole process. I could record at will and save a great number of programs indefinitely. It was the best. And I could still stream anything with my attached Apple TV.

Why can’t I still get cable TV? I still have cables connected to my house. Maybe GCI could sell their cable service. No, they probably wouldn’t do that. They’d lose a lot of customers. Maybe some clever lawyer could start a class-action lawsuit and force GCI to remove all their now-worthless cables strung all across and throughout my house. Yeah, cable TV was the best. Why can’t we get the best in Anchorage?
