As I described in another post, they ripped out half of my TV channels in the middle of a 2yr contract, told me if I cancel my service I'll be hit with a $425 early termination fee, argued with me pointlessly for hours, and eventually I caved in and agreed to pay an extra $5/mo plus sign new 2yr contract to get my channels back, and then they hit me with the $425 early termination fee anyway, for cancelling my old contract and upgrading to a new one.  We are talking about pure, pure assholes here.  They know you don't have any other alternative.

If they broke the contract, take then to small claims court.
