"The technician called to notify me he was running late, when he arrived I explained what the difficulty had been. He listened attentively, then did a thorough examination" to determine the source of the trouble. The remote control was found to be the culprit. I was given more than one option for a replacement, the tech introduced me to one that was more user friendly. He also suggested further tips and suggestions that were appreciated. In my opinion that
provides very good customer service, nothing is perfect when it comes to technology but they certainly aim to please and never charge a fee to correct problems. Most current date of service was in May, not exactly positive of day.

"We had a major lighting strike in our neighborhood which damaged the outside Brighthouse cable box. The subsequent power surge to the coaxial cable fried our Brighthouse" dvr and the surge passed through the HDMI from the Brighthouse dvr and ruined our television and Blu-
player (est cost $1500.00). We are longtime Brighthouse customers with many opportunities to switch providers but haven't, because we were always pleased with their outstanding customer service and response to any technical problems. Given the response to the resent incident and complete utter disregard for our situation, I wish we had switched to Verizon long ago. I spoke with several neighbors that were also effected by the major lightning strike and only the ones with problems were those who had Brighthouse. Similarly, they too had had issues with their dvr and connected equipment. BUYER BEWARE: Brighthouse's website states that it does not encourage use of surge protection other than for a/c because Brighthouse provides a ground block. This is the minimum required by the FCC (so we learned). What we also learned is that this copper wire ground block will do no good if lighting strikes near by, and Brighthouse knows this but does nothing to anticipate a problem. In short, what happens in your house, stays in your house and Brighthouse (even if connected) is not responsible! We had a Brighthouse rep visit our house and offer to complete the paperwork to present to our home insurance. This doesn't seem right. Their system failed and as a result, our property was damaged. Shouldn't the Brighthouse insurance pay for damage done to our property? In my business, if my product fails, I have insurance coverage to protect my customers. It appears Brighthouse does not. To put an exclamation point on the Brighthouse customer service experience, my daughter overheard Brighthouse rep.
Blue make the comment to the other Brighthouse rep. (visiting our neighbor who was having similar issues) that, "this is their problem, and not ours." Nice way to treat a longtime customer, or any customer for that matter. So much for customer service.

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)

Cable Tv reviews in Tampa

We have been using them for about 35 years. They are good. They show up when they say they will and they don't charge for service calls. A lot of the time they can even walk me through issues over the phone without sending anyone out. They aren't perfect but I am satisfied and I will continue my services with them.

When
Tampa Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
got here, he asked us if we had turned off the power to the TV, because there weren't any lights lit. He tried to turn the TV on and then took apart the back of the set. My husband was bummed because he thought we were going to have to buy a new TV.
Tampa Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
messed with one of the contact switches and the TV came on. He turned around and looked at me and said "I didn't do anything!" So, he figured the contact switch wasn't making a good connection for some reason and his jiggling it got the connection back. It was funny, because then my husband was bummed we weren't getting a new TV. The TV seems to be working fine.

gave me his card and told me to call him if anything else happened.

Our phone and internet service was basic, but our cable service was a bit more elaborate. I was satisfied with our service, but within one week of another company coming into the area, they called and offered $60 off my bill. It made me upset because I felt like I had been overpaying them $60 for months before they had any competition.

The Internet is fast, but they want us to change the package, which I am not interested in, because then I am not going to get all the sports channels that I get now. The new package is also more expensive. They are all wonderful people, with the exception of their customer service, because you cannot talk to them, they are hard to get. It would have been so wonderful if you could talk to a live human instead of the big voice recorder.

This is so awesome I had to write about it. My little bedroom Sanyo hasn't been working for months making everything look green. I fiddled with it at least three times for over an hour and couldn't get the right picture back. So I looked on Angie's List for a TV repair service with high ratings. Advance Electronics Solutions jumped out at me with all the fantastic reviews. So I called and
Tampa Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
answered and asked if he could call me back in a couple of minutes as he was on the phone with a customer.
He called back in a couple of minutes and I asked if I could bring my set in for repair. He asked me to describe the set and the problem and then he said the set isn't broken but the hook-up is either wrong or not well connected. He told me what to do and asked that I call back to let him know the outcome. I did was he instructed and the TV is working fine. I called him back to let him know and to thank him.
Tampa Cable Companies Provider Name Locked
was prompt, courteous, friendly and he saved me time and money. You simply can't get better than that! He has my business forever and I will tell all my friends about him. That's the way to do business.

The entire experience was terrific. I didn't have to lug my 50" plasma to a repair shop, nor did

have to take it with him. Now that is great service. I will be calling

soon to install an outdoor TV and mount a TV on the wall.
Thank you so much for the great work!
