I understand from BHN expert (i guess thats the guy who called me yesterday) that BH is protecting the programing and doing what they are supposed to where as the other companys are not - xfinity, knology, verizon. I dont know. I really dont want to have a TA in my house and really dont feel I should have to but I guess theres nothing that makes me "special" So i will just have to bite the bullet and get one. Once again big conglomirate wins. Seriously thinking about paying the fee to VZ and moving to them. Do they use TA's with their cards ? Anyone know ?
