Day 12: Changing Channels

Every now and again
I have noticed stations complaining
Certain providers intend to
Drop them from their line-ups.

I've seen them on various American providers
Where they beg people to call the companies
And plead that they would
"Save their channels."

This was never a problem
When I lived in Canada
Yes, channels came and went
But most of them remained on the landscape.

I can understand this is a move
To add new channels to the programming grid
However, why must other stations be sacrificed
To make room for them?

Is it a monetary issue?
Fees transferred between the providers and stations?
One thing for certain, while greed is existent
The consumers lose out in the end.
