Cable at its best

I think by this point, anyone who still watches television through a cable company is probably unhappy. I know that I’m not too happy. And my parents are really not happy since their cable company decides that their current service just doesn’t work for the price. Every month, one or two channels get taken off of their service. But to combat these unhappy customers, companies such as Charter Communications are doing something different. They are trying to put the fun back into watching TV.

Not only has Charter joined Twitter (@chartercom), but the company also wants to show their appreciation for their customers by hosting online contests. Last year, Charter gave away a variety of prizes including a 2009 Honda Civic Hybrid and Xbox 360 systems. And current or new customers can get into the action as well. Right now Charter is offering a chance to enter their April sweepstakes to win a 22” flat screen HDTV. One is given away every day through April. And there’s even a grand prize: a 52” LCD flast screen HDTV with home theater system and one year of free Charter cable with HD.


Honestly, this contest is so amazing. If you are not a Charter cable subscriber, you really should be.
