This article talks about a man sentanced to jail for three months for stealing satelite t.v., as well as helping others do the same. I thought this was a good article to show and example of free-riding. There are honest people out there paying for their satellite t.v. and channels, however there is a way around that. To my understanding, you have to have somebody come out, to make sure everything is hooked up and check every few months to make sure everything is ok. If you do not have them come out, that is considering stealing their satellite t.v. because you are free-riding on other people paying for it. This has been an issue in the past years with stealing cable t.v. as well and an issue that I think will never stop.
