Time Warner cable blows!

supposedly they are having difficulty with the broadcast. no picture, dvr didn't record.
we just moved and DirectTV isn't an option so we had to go with TW. So bummed. They're working on it, but for me the TDF has yet to start...

I am having trouble with comcast. They said they'll send someone in 9 days. WTF? I call the phone company, power company, gas company, ect. and someone is here in an hour. Not the cable company. 9 days from now between 8 and 5 or some crap like that. They said I was lucky as some people are waiting a month.

yet another good reason why I just watch the streams on TV and then download the iTV recap later in the day. Worked last year. Plan to make it work this year as well. I don't have a DVR neither do I get versus, so TV isn't much of an option for me. I could record the audio and video feeds onto my comp when i'm not around but then that'll take up a ton of room which I don't have much of. And besides they cover pretty much everything in the recap anyway.

Nope. You need make things work to your advantage. Lines such as "I'm lucky enough to have a south-facing apartment with a balcony" have worked quite well for me in the recent past. Actually, it got them to cut my bill by 50% too.

Usual story. Do your research and see if you can get satellite in 4 days, then dump TWC.
