Get Rid of Armed Forces Network
This is backward. Keep Stars and Stripes, get rid of Armed Forces Network. Deliver American television to Americans overseas for a nominal fee, and eliminate all of the nonsense that goes with AFN.
When you are stationed overseas, AFN is a pain to watch. They remove commercials for some antiquated reason and they try to shift programming so that this week's episode of some dumb show is not shown in a foreign country before the networks want it to be shown.
The death of television as an industry should indicate that we simply need to allow people stationed overseas to use sling box technology to get the television they want, on demand, from an Internet provider. Everything else is just crap.
