Yesterday was September 1st, which just happened to be the day that the newest season of Doctor Who was premiering on BBC America. The cable package we had initially signed up for didn't come with BBC America, which bummed my wife out a bit. She wasn't very excited to have to wait a year for the newest season to show up on Netflix...and neither was I to tell you the truth.
Finally, last night, about 63 minutes before the show was supposed to start, my will broke. I called up Charter and asked what it would take to add just the one channel, BBC America to our cable lineup.
That resolve lasted about 13 seconds, when the nice lady told me on the phone that for only $10 more than it would cost just to add BBC America, I could add a whole new tier of channels, including the NFL Network.
Grrrr. I'm so weak.
My weakness isn't the scary part though...what is terrifying is that I had the new channels before I even hung up the phone...but then, I also had a happy wife.
