Worth Twice The Price

I am so mad at my cable company. I was watching TechTV when the installer was here last week, and for a few hours afterward. But it hasn’t worked since. I called once last week and they couldn’t get it working.
I just called again today. It turns out I’m not paying enough. $55/month isn’t enough? I have to subscribe to the Silver package for ten bucks more to get TechTV. Even though this is not clear anywhere in their sales materials. Grrr.

I’m bringing the digital boxes back and getting DISH. It’s $40/month – $25 cheaper. Of course, ATT is going to charge me $10 extra a month for @home because I’m not a cable subscriber, but it’s still cheaper. Humph. No wonder AT&T’s stock is in the dumper!

Digital Disable

How frustrating. The digital cable box stopped working with TechTV the minute the installer left. The firmware got confused apparently. I called AT&T, they reprogrammed the box from the office and it still doesn’t work. Whose idea was it to put a computer in a cable box anyway. It’s probably running Windows. Grrr.
