if you don't hace no cable providers you cant watch shows like nick cuz they are only on cable channels and there is no was to get cable channels without a cable provider unless you can figure out a way to use another line form another source for another thing that that source wasn't planned to use assuming that there is another source and if there isn't then you can't use that source and therefore cant get no cable channels even if you want to get the cable channels unless off course you have one of those internet things that lets you get cable channels when you dont have cable providers in which case you may be able to watch nick.

I think.

How could you miss this punctuation?

"$1756.24"

The guy is very clear about the "and 24 cents".

You know, I run a forum and it is amazing how many posts such as this one (by the OP) we see. Clearly most are by kids, as I assume is the case here - and that just makes it worse. This is how today's youth communicate. In all seriousness - think about what this means for their - and our - future.

One of the things I run is the forum for an online multiplayer game and I can't agree with you more.

At the very least, isn't the OP asking about theft of service, which isn't allowed and grounds to be banned by somebody!!!

But, this thread is funny!!

I wonder if OP is reading this, or did they disconnect his internet service.

The post above yours is from the original poster, so maybe he is reading. However, he might not comprehend most of the replies.

I think the OPer is asking if the channels the rest of us pay for are actually available OTA for free. Seems like a pretty logical question...
