Customers give dismal scores to TV providers

Note to Comcast and AT&T executives: you've got your work cut out for you.

Time Warner Cable has a score of 56 and Comcast has a score of 60. The industry average is 65.

The data was released in a report Tuesday, two days after AT&T announced a plan to acquire the biggest satellite provider in the country, DirecTV.

    AT&T just keeps raising prices. I call, threaten to leave, and they give me a small bone. They are making huge profits and they want more. Well, in 1917, the Russian people got tired of being treated like cattle by the Tsar. And you know what happened to him! Time to let these greedy bums know they can be replaced as well.
