I did not watch the documentary, because it is too expensive to watch on our spectrum cable service. We will cut off our cable service on April 5.

I'm sorry you and so many others have had TCM pushed into a more expensive package. It happened to me, as well, a few years ago and I paid for the upgrade. If it happens again, however, I will not be able to do so.
