I’m : a programmer, writer, podcaster, geek, and coffee enthusiast.

I hate cable companies

My rate’s going to increase by $27/month (to around $125 for standard digital cable and internet service) in June because I’ve been a Cablevision customer for a year and therefore am no longer eligible for promo pricing.

If I were a DISH Network customer and switched to Cablevision, I could get the same bundle, but with more TV channels, for $79/month for a year.

With the price difference, I could pay my entire cellphone bill.

But I can’t get that price because I’ve been loyal to Cablevision for a year. Way to reward your customers!
