  • I'm glad to be plugged in to this cable company

    Mar 10, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great selection of channels
    Cons: Kind of a high price

    Summary: Our cable company is Service Electric. Period. Where I live, you don't get a choice. Even though it is quite pricey for TV viewing -- which I seem to be doing less and less these days -- I would never get rid of it. When I signed up for cable some 10 ... read more

    Summary: I don't even know where to begin to start on this. Service Electric is the worst cable provider ever. I have had their service for just over 3 years because i cannot get satellite due to trees. In this horrible time, i have had constant freezing and ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: not one thing - I can't think of a single thing
    Cons: lousy service, lousy reception, too pricey, dated equipment, you can go weeks without cable

    Summary: We live in Upper Bucks and can only get Service Electric cable, we have no choice in this area. We tried Direct TV but when it was cloudy or drizzling we had no reception - so on ugly days or snowy days when you're stuck indoors you couldn't watch tv. ... read more

    Pros: Above average channel selection
    Cons: No digital cable service. High price. Customer service. No broadband internet service. Lousy home installation.
