    The other night around 12:30 or so I turned on the TV to spikeTV...
    It said "paid programming" on this guide thingy on the tv. What does that mean? Does that mean the company is paying to show you something. or does it mean you have to pay to watch? I clicked on it to see...it was a GGW thing.
    Anyways, what are they, do I get charged for it on my cable bill, or is it the company paying for the show for people to see?

    thanks.

    It's an info-mercial. Basically a 30 or 60 minute commercial. You don't get charged.
