Out of curiosity, do you also object to the schedule direct people
charging a subscription fee or having to pay for the hardware you put
your mythbox on, the fees to your ISP for downloading the myth
software, and (potentially) the fees you pay to your cable company or
satellite provider?

Yes the myth software is free (in all senses of the word) and that is
great.  I do not begrudge someone who wants to sell a product that can
be used with myth though.
