Back when we moved into our new home we had to sign up for a new TV/Internet/Phone provider as our previous company wasn’t in our new neighborhood. As far as cable goes, we like to have the basic channels but we’ve been fine without the premium movie channels. If we wanted to catch up on a series or a movie we had Netflix.
We were able to get a good deal on a combo that would actually be a few dollars cheaper than what we were paying for from our old provider and this new deal actually included some premium channels like Showtime. Cool, I’ll take a movie channel. When talking with the representative I asked if the package would include channels like IFC (Independent Film Channel) and Sundance (you ever see Spectacle: Elvis Costello with…? Awesome music interview show!). I was just making sure since I liked those channels and they weren’t considered premium on our previous provider. I was told they were included so I was happy. Fast forward to our installation day and our technician told me that IFC wasn’t included in the package I ordered. Grrr.
