NYCHA / people have no choice

1 NY, United States Review updated:

Hi. My name is eugene! My address is 2926 w25th str, brooklyn, ny. My parents just moved in and decided to subscribe for tv service. They were surprised to know that there is only cable vision! Cable vision provides only 4 russian channels, and they are not that good and cable vision charge them like crazy! 76 dollars for 4 russian channels and basic american package! At the same time satellite companies, such us direct tv provide more then 15 channels for 49.99 a month! I personally think that this is unfair that they have no choice! Constitution says, that people should have a right to watch what they want, not what other people tell them to watch! I called in the management and they say that the reason of this is that hardware fall down the building and could cause the damage, and even kill somebody! To be honest that was the stupidest answer I have ever heard! How could the hardware fall down the building! Its impossible! Only if I will go up, which is also impossible and throw it down!

    I live in a private apartment building, and we are not allowed to install satellite dishes either. Many buildings have that policy. You do have the right to watch whatever you want. You also have the right to choose where you want to live. If you want to live somewhere where you can get satellite, you can choose to live there. No one is forcing anyone to live in a NYCHA housing development.
