DirectTV: A waste of money

We got DirectTV when we moved down here, because it came bundled into our AT&T broadband service, and because I need the news channels to be writing about the presidential campaign. I cannot imagine why anybody would voluntarily pay for this. We have hundreds of channels, and nothing on. It seems like every other channel is an infomercial vector. What is the point? Looking at the channel guide is like opening up your post office box and pulling out a fat sheaf of junk mail. Humph.
