Tonight was the decision night in my household. While going to order a movie on lovley Tele-Media Digital Cable Service, we went to the PPV channel, it took forever to load and had brief pixelation. After the hassel of getting it to load we are greeted by the absence of the buy function through the cable box. We looked for it, but its gone. So we call the cable company to order over the phone. The automated service keeps forcing Cedric the Entertainer upon us. We had no options just Cedric. So we go to get someone on the phone to help. OH WAIT, there closed. Lovley answering service can leave a message and we can get assisted on Monday Afternoon. Gee that helps alot. Directv will be in the house soon, 24hr customer service, PPV through the receiver. More channels, less price. Its a matter of choosing a receiver.
