    Due to a lack of regulation, it isn't - but Dear God Almighty, it should be. You won't see this happen in Europe or Asia, or even the Middle East. EVER.

    This screams bigger conspiracy - like that of the Comcast - Time Warner merger...

    This corporate fascism is all connected. I just know it is...
    Tropes that are ruining Western/European Animation (and any animes involving school):
    Spoiler:
    1. Twins and/or Rich Kids as antagonists; Bullies in general. 2. Annoying jerk sibling characters and/or General sibling characters who hate each others' guts. 3. Hidden Caucasian male dominance (usually subverted to be female in anime, which can be equally as bad – and a real turnoff in general!).

    There are whole countries around the world that filter every person there's internet for political and other purposes.
    Here's the deal, I'm the best there is. I wake up in the morning and I urinate excellence. And nobody can hang with my stuff. I'm just a big hairy American winning machine.

    I'm very humble, too.

    People are within their rights to use an anonymizer or public wifi to see the shows for now, but I agree it does seem like a stupid decision. You can't just up and switch providers, especially in rural areas.

    Being one who lives in a town with Cable One, it has people angry, and you should go to the Cable One Facebook page and read the comments! Anyways, I can still watch episode clips on any Viacom site. I can not watch full episodes on any Viacom site. If I get a blocked video, I get this message.

    Like I said before, my TV provider NEVER did that! They never restricted us from visiting the website of a certain channel.

    According to Cable One, its Viacom, not Cable One, who blocked the content. At least you can still watch (some) viacom shows on hulu.
