Suddenlink has dropped Viacom in order to save themselves money, without saving their customers money. This hit is only at the expense of the customers and we've been compensated with utterly useless channels in place of the ones we've lost.

To make the situation worse, they're running a "by popular demand" marketing plan to try and convince their consumer base that they chose to bend over and take Suddenlink's abuse. I'm sorry, but I don't think a hypnotist could convince anyone that viewers would toss out Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV, and VH1 for Sprout, FXX, Hallmark, the Oprah Winfrey Network and a whole bunch of *** I've never heard of.

The only way this could be a popular opinion is if Suddenlink's viewership is made up by 80+ year old women. I will be dropping my TV service.

Review about: Suddenlink Tv Service.

Reason of review: Not as described.

Monetary Loss: $400.

Preferred solution: Deliver product or service ordered.

You're insulting my 82 year old mother who is by no means a bumbling idiot (you will lose your shirt if you assume the worst). She doesn't even watch TV except for travel shows, informational documentaries, and some music.

Then it's only on as background for her hobbies and chores. I don't like your vulgarity which makes it perfectly clear how much time you spend glued to the telescreen absorbing the sickness that radiates from it.

Suddenlink has the worst channel selection of any cable company I've ever had. They really do suck!

Not only did Suddenlink raise the rates of their service just months after dropping some of the most popular channels to, as they say, "save the customer money" -now these greedy people have internet data caps, which by the way didn't inform us until we went over.

We can complain all we want, fact of the matter is, Suddenlink doesn't care enough to change things

Can you please add Day star to your list on cable channels. Direct tv has it, it is based out of Dallas Texas. Thanks

The thing that I can not forgive Suddenlink for is not having all the local "Over-The-Air Channels". To get a couple of the local College Station channels, I had to hook up an antenna to my TV.

Wife hates the antenna, but it is because Suddenlink does not carry all local channels. It must be because PBS just does not pay Suddenlink as much as Suddenlink wants to carry the channels.

My local Suddenstink (love that name!) office says it would have added $5 - FIVE BUCKS - to our bill. Well, we're now getting rid of $20+ worth, so...?

She also said the office had no idea until the day before that channels were changing and had hoards of people coming in to yell at them for the next week or so.

I so miss The Daily Show on Comedy Central... And no, they didn't survey anyone in our area at all.

Instead of advertising the "By popular demand" commercials on Television 24-7, while this "Survey" was going on, that exact same type of advertising couldve been used to notify us about the same survey allowing us to be aware of the potential changes & give us enough time to take action instead of leaving us spontaneously confused & angry. Atleast acknowledge the fact that this wasn't by popular demand or don't advertise it at all.

I couldn't figure out why Suddenlink changed their channels until I read up on it. I don't even think it was the older people they surveyed.

I don't think they did a survey at all. In my area there is no other option but I would rather watch nothing than watch Suddenlink. I usually watch tv in early morning and all I find is paid programming. Other shows are older series and hardly any movies.

News dominate many of the channels, as well as "reality" shows. I live a real life and can't wrap my head around all the drama of these so-called reality shows. Suddenlink, if you're listening, bring back our channels with no extra cost and more good programming.

I'm sure you have enough money! Give the people what they want and stop lying to us...

I can't stand the "by popular demand". Viacom has stated plainly that Suddenstink agreed to and then reneged on their Viacom contract. I refuse to do business with liars and cheats.

They must take us for idiots or something because most of the "popular demand" channels I've never heard of. A complete rip off!

Suddenlink is only fooling themselves with this *** about these new channels. This mess that they are now showing is worthless and anyone who actually have to watch these new channels should be paid for the pain and suffering of having to deal with these useless channels.

No one is demanding these channels and suddenlink should stop trying to make us think otherwise. They fought with Viacom over the price of shows and in the end didn't want to cough up any money. So we get stuck with this mess. Direct is starting to look pretty good.

If they didn't want to deal with Viacom anymore, couldn't they have at least tried to find some decent shows instead of the *** that's on now? Whoever picked these channels needs to get their *** kicked!

They took off all my 3 year olds cartoon channels. This is a big problem for me, cause how do you explain this to him?

Suddenlink that's your problem now. Why can't you let the consumers decide what they want?

So many questions and no satisfying answers. We are poorly poorly disappointed.
