It seems some of Oprah's fans are not happy they now have to pay to see her. She was free on regular basic cable, but companies like TIME WARNER charge you up the ass for second-tier service. Not everyone can afford the extra fees to watch.
Some fans have even written that the roster of programming is not worth the upgrade.
from NEW YORK POST:
"I am very disappointed that I will not be able to watch Oprah (whom I love)," wrote lvtootsie. "I cannot afford to pay the extra monthly fee."
Oprah Winfrey's Web site was flooded with posts from fans upset that they now have to pay to see the talk-show queen.
"Cannot believe Oprah would launch a new show on a cable channel that is not part of the basic service," wrote a fan tagged johnjanesmith.
"She will be losing some of her most loyal fans because they either do not have cable or they have basic cable. I have basic cable and do not plan on changing my cable service."
"Oprah has lost me as I am sure many other people. Too bad that she didn't look into a channel that would serve everyone."
