Disney is warning Altice cable customers that they might lose ESPN and other Disney channels at the end of the month. Yes, this is the start of another public spat between two big media companies, with customers caught in between.

Well, good news: If you have a credit card and a Facebook account, there's a way you can spend unlimited amounts of money to do just that -- and there's no law, no regulation, no mechanism of any kind to stop you.
