If you like sports I would go to Directtv that's what I did a few months back I don't see myself ever going back to cable tv. However, I do have Charter for phone and internet which I'm very happy with. Also Directtv has so much more HD content than Charter

I've never understood this - Paul Allen is a NBA and NFL owner but the two sports channels that Charter does not carry are the NFL Network and NBA TV - maybe a Charter rep can shed some light on this for us..................

yes but he was this way BEFORE then. No explanation for it. Allan paying for NFL Network would have meant he was paying himself anyways. That's kind of like the owner of a McDonald's franchise refusing to eat at his own McDonald's because he thought the price of the value meals was too high.

I haven't heard any.. Like they said man, youre better off going the DirecTV or Dish Network (or maybe even U-Verse if its in your area) route. My family switched to DirecTV from Charter and pretty much EVERYONE in my neighborhood has a dish stuck on the side of their house. Im not sure whats going on at Charter, but it seems they don't even care about adding (HD) channels. We had them for a year and they didn't add crap. Their internet service has been great for me, though. That and their phone service is pretty much all they have going for them these days.
