Well, I guess today was the day. Another month and another $200+ cable bill from my "friends" at Time Warner Cable. For those who don't know I live in rural Maine and these people these people have what has always seemed and felt like an absolute monopoly.
Anyway, I don't really know what prompted me to even to look around today or why this happened to be the straw that broke the camels back but check out what I found.
Dish Network is running an unadvertised special where they will give you half off of their service if you tell them you are switching from a cable company. I am getting 4 rooms with HD and 4 DVRs and the ability to watch my DVR from anywhere I can log on the the internet. For $65/month. WHAT!?
I know it's not the kind of stuff we normally talk about but I am so excited about this deal that I couldn't wait to tell you guys. Even if you are happy with your current service you should call them and ask what they are willing to do for you to get you to switch.
You can call them at 1-888-652-2671. Push 1 when asked if you are calling to order service and then just give them the chance to sell you. Negotiate after the first offer. They are really pulling out all the stops to try and add customers.
**as you might expect they are getting slammed. you might be on hold a couple minutes**
