Free TV

Today, I discovered that when you suddenly get channels that you didn't have before, it doesn't mean there was a glitch and you're getting free TV, it just means that your son called the cable company and had your plan changed so you get every conceivable channel at a hugely increased price. FML

What I wanna know is if it included the dirty channels too.

If the account isn't in his name he can't request the extra channels surely.

The kicker is that the good stuff is STILL unavailable and only on a pay-per-view basis.

This is why you call and check these things instead of try to keep stuff for free

This is true. But some company reps forget to follow procedures. Ive had reps forget to ask me questions on my own account.

I used to order movies all the time when I was younger ect. It's also not hard to fake being the owner of the account so long as you know the account information. I pay my moms bill all the time with out them knowing Im not really her.

Apparently not, we recently had an upgrade to our internet speed through Verizon because they occasionally give you offers through your set top box and my stepdaughter rather than exiting out of it okayed right through it so now we have a 50/25 mbps connection

It's also possible that, considering OP is a man, that his son just pretended to be him to get the channels added.

33- Can't tell if this is a joke flying over my head, or you're actually pointing this out.

I can upgrade my programming online. Perhaps OP has an online account and didn't sign out.

Actually you can its really simple. Even though I'm 19 my cable is still under my parents. To get it changed they just ask. "Are you sure this is ok?" And I say yup and that's it no passwords no nothing.

Tell him if he wants the extra channels then he gets to pay the extra money for them.

but mum! now we have 5000 channels of nothing and 45 of ****!

I have 2000 channels, only about 150 are actually worth it. Out of that 150, 10 are **** by night time and 50 are playing repeats of movies. That leaves 90 channels of actual TV... Out of the 2000 my family pays for.. Such a rip..

I always thought the person the account was under was the one who could only do that? Good plan cablr compaines....good plan.

Nowadays all you need is the account holders name and whatever security info they have on the account to gain access and change whatever....OP's son clearly knew all of that.

Tell him to turn the TV off, and go do homework, so he can have intellect and commonsense to graduate.

He might need a CPR class too.

At that point, I'd just take the TV away. I'm sure you can find other ways to entertain yourself, and he'll learn a valuable lesson.

Cut the extra fees on his allowance. He wants those extra channels, he pays for them.

Haha how old is he? Clearly old enough to trick the company lolol he is gonna get RSI soon ;)
