This is why I have a satellite dish.
[Don't you also have a cable modem? --Ed.] Yes, but not from Comcast. And what have I told you about ripping off Kaus?
I have many stories like that over the years living in different parts of the counrty, but finally I can say something nice about our cable company, Bright House and road runner internet service in central Florida. I am knocking on wood as I type. They provide a good product at not too exorbitant a price. Tech support is knowledgeable and speaks English.
Amazing, but true.
I’m also with BrightHouse of Central Florida, and: me, too.
The only thing about them that I absolutely loathe is their use of the Scientific Atlanta cable box/DVR, which is an utter piece of crap. I did hear that Scientific Atlanta was bought by someone (Cisco?) so if we all work together and destroy the evil SciAtl boxes, maybe they’ll be eventually replaced by something decent.
I mean, what kind of nitwits offer 20GB DVRs as their sole solution; DVRs that have almost every box interface disabled? I mean, they have data interfaces on the back (FireWire? Can’t recall) that are turned off, so you couldn’t expand the storage if you wanted to.
I have Bright House in central Florida as well. The internet is awesome, but I agree about the DVR boxes. But now we’ll be getting pop ups on our tvs touted as Interactive TV. I hope we can turn them off.
We love our DVR, also a Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300, but we’re not really savvy about electronic gadgets, so perhaps the service could be even better. I rarely watched TV prior to the easy taping feature which allows you to preset and tape 80 hours of shows.
BTW – Is the Green family okay? I’m starting to worry about them.
