Just to lighten things up for everyone... A pretty accurate (yet funny) video on how things work in the board room of the Cable/Satellite companies... Warning! as the article says, it contains language not suitable for work!

That's not only not even funny, it's way far from accurate any more. i've got Comcast, now Xfinity, and have enjoyed top programming and service for over four years now. I seldom need service, but if I do, I usually get same-day or next-day service

Welcome to the 21st century -- it's not your grandpa's cable company anymore!

Not so fast - in costs and speed, US internet is about 20th in the world, behind countries such as South Korea and Estonia.

Not necessarily true as I said above. Patience, perhaps, but certainly not unlimited; unlimited = doormat.
