Cable TV - Charter loses subscribers

Local Cable TV monopoly, Charter Communications reported higher-than-expected subscriber losses for the second quarter, according to Peter Grant.

I recently thought about adding direct tv or charter cable to our home - largely for the Olympics (we don't watch a whole lot of TV). I found the direct tv customer service folks to be excellent, while my charter interactions were not great (lots of rather hard upselling). I really only wanted local channels, espn and msnbc. They don't evidently unbundle. Bummer that unlike other parts of the world, we won't be watching live Olympic internet streams.
