  1. Brian

    Discovery and my cableTV provider just broke up, so no discovery for them any more.
    Not that i care, from January 1 i will not be able to see TV, even the cheapest cable package or streaming option are not worth it for me, cuz none of then have something worth watching.

    I think i have outgrown TV.

  2. Thank you for sharing article and information. this is very helpful for beginner.
