"Nothing from June 20th until June 29. Had ATT for many years without incident. With grandchildren moving in , it was appropriate to upgrade. Tech came on the 19th." Was here for 4 hours. Signal strong and clear...little over 24 hours later signal was no longer being connected. 18 calls late,four promises for call Backs but never fulfilled ,excessive use of my wireless phone data package ....... Many excuses, no resolution for nearly ten days!! Outrageous!!!

"The service people are wonderful! Our moving date was set back a few days and they are still able to accommodate our new transfer dates. All this on top of a lower rate than we currently pay.

Cable and satellite TV

The variety of home entertainment options continues to increase as stations are added and TV technology advances. It's important to do your homework before choosing a television service provider.

Cutting cable costs by streaming TV and movies

More consumers are cutting the cord for cable TV services and switching to streaming movies and TV shows from the Internet and content services like Netflix and Hulu. One group estimates that as many as 3.56 million Americans will make the switch in 2012 alone.

Dealing with your cable provider can be a frustrating experiences. Being well-prepared before picking up the phone to complain could save you time and help you avoid too many hassles. (Photo by Jason Hargraves)

They always have a deal that tries to keep their customer and then its a battle as the price keeps fluctuating. I am a little annoyed because of the fee, but I live in a remote area and there no kind of selection here. So, I have them as they are the best in town. They are pretty good when it comes to responsiveness. There is no competition so I will stick with them.

This is my second time working with
Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
. He is very smart and quite painstaking in his attention to detail. But he is not a "technology snob" - he will walk you through every detail and answer all of your questions. He's not arrogant, like some of the tech help guys you may run into. He doesn't treat you like you're stupid if your knowledge of the equipment is minimal. He wants you to be happy and will take the time to walk you through all of your options - and before he leaves, he'll make sure that you understand how the equipment works. He's like that cool high school teacher, who loves what he does and will bend over backwards to make sure that you understand too. The first time I hired
Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
, he helped me get my Klipsch system to work (my TV had picture, but no sound, and the wireless subwoofer was refusing to woof) and the other components also weren't playing nice with one another.
Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
rewired the system so that all the parts worked smoothly (even the finicky subwoofer). So when it came time for me to move to my new apartment, he was the one I called to help me get set up. I had a good receiver that I seldom used (Yamaha HTR-5860) and thought it might be an upgrade over my finicky Klipsch CS-700 (who I have had three other tech help guys work on, before finding
Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
). He called to let me know that he was delayed but on his way (a
Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
thing, that many don't do). He arrived shortly after his call, and then walked me through both options - staying with the Klipsch vs. going with the Yamaha. The Klipsch was an integrated system (all of the components were made by Klipsch) and going with the Yamaha would mean buying new speakers (because it could blow out the Klipsch bookshelf speakers). He thought he could get the Klipsch subwoofer to play nice with the Yamaha receiver. I'm not super wealthy (far from it), but my TV is one of my few pleasures, so I decided to go for the better speakers. I figured that would mean that
Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
would have to come back another time, but he surprised me by offering to go with me to a nearby Best Buy and help me pick out the best buy for my modest budget. While driving to the store, I learned that
Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
has an extensive background in top end stereo equipment. Once in the store, he ran rings around the Best Buy sales person in the Home Theater department.
Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
asked great questions, sorted through several brands in different price ranges, and more importantly (to me) advised me on which brands NOT TO BUY. The salesman ended up offering me an open box discount on a brand that offered good quality but that I had never heard of -- but
Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
had. The brand was called "Energy" and I bought a matched set (left, right and a center console) for about $500 total. The center console wasn't in stock, but
Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
came back to my home - all of this happened on the same day - and began wiring up the two speakers we did have. He connected them to the Yamaha A/V receiver (after making some tweaks to my TV stand -
Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
doesn't miss a thing!), then spent time talking me through how he was connecting both the HDMI cables and the optical cables, so that I'd have the best picture and best sound. He then gave me a tutorial on how to use my remote so that I'd remember which button to press for music and movies vs. DirectTV (complete with a little mini-quiz to test if I really did know how to do it). I expected after spending about three hours with me, that his price would be really high, but it was actually very reasonable. I recommend him highly. To say that he exceeded my expectations, would not do him enough justice. I think he's the best vendor on Angie's List that I've worked with, and I've worked with a lot of them. Great service, but better yet, a great guy. And I didn't even mention the help with my internet provider. I would recommend him for a Page of Happiness and Super Service award.

Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
is the worst company I ever used for anything! They will continue to try to

up the bill every couple months saying a "promotion" expired. Then when you call them they will lie to you saying they changed the bill to what is used to be and they you get the same bill. Then the same things a couple more times. I will try to avoid them if at all possible in the future.

was prompt on his arrival; worked quickly to remove it and then transported it safely to our new home. He then worked efficiently to prepare the wall with a new

We have had
Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
for a few years now. My husband first signed on with the provider before we were dating and we have kept them since. However, I have been unhappy with them for a number of months now. It is extremely difficult to get through to a customer service representative and even when you do, they are not very knowledgeable or helpful. You simply get passed around from one associate to another. For the money we are paying (over $100 a month), we are not getting many channels or any additional features. We have bought movies in the past that we should have available for 24 hours and they become unavailable before they should expire. We are moving in a few months- I will definitely not get

again.

Informed
Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
I was moving and scheduled a service termination date of 6/16/2014. They sent me postage paid boxes to return the equipment on my own. I then received a call from
Chicago Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
telling me they were picking up the equipment on May 30th. I informed them that it wasn't necessary as I will be mailing it back myself using the material they ready sent me, and that they couldn't retrieve it anyway on May 30th as it is two weeks prior to the shut off date that I am being billed for. Their representatives were very rude, and said they will then be there on 6/16 to pick up the equipment. I informed them that I will not be able to guarantee I will be there, which is why I needed to return the equipment on my own. They told me that since I was no longer a customer as of 6/16/14, my convenience didn't matter, and they will do whatever they want.

It took them 2 times to come out. First man said he didn't see the wire. How could he not see that big wire sitting on roof of garage. Then had to wait few days for another tech to come out.
