10. Sounds interesting. I hope they have a lot of internet programming.

We don't subscribe to cable, just internet. And there are several reasons. For one thing, I don't want to pay for channels like Fox News and not get channels like MSNBC or Al Jazeera or other channels.

For another, cable is too expensive. We need to choose between internet or cable, and we prefer internet.

Third, is a bit of an extension of the first, we don't want to pay for the useless news about celebrities. If I know someone or I watch a show or movie with a certain star or written or directed by a certain person, I might look that person up on the internet, but I could care less about the everyday details of their personal life drummed into me hour by hour, day by day. It's annoying.

So, I'm looking forward to seeing Soledad on the internet if Al Jazeera puts her on.
