Taxi TV in New York City is Annoying to New Yorkers

NYC's Taxi TV: Might Be Annoying Unless Gossip Girl Is On

I'm bummed that I didn't get to experience Taxi TV when I was in New York — the service, though described by this New York article as annoying and wearing on city's taxi-taking populace, actually sounds pretty cool to me, aside from the apparent high volume and constant ads.

If you could get into the cab and pick what you wanted to watch, rather than be imposed upon by what Taxi TV chooses, I think it'd be awesome — most short cab rides would probably be only enough time for like four really funny jokes on 30 Rock, but whatever. How do you feel about Taxi TV, New Yorkers? Can you actually change the channel, or are you subject to whatever is on?
