AT&Ts Statement Is A Lie

AT&Ts statement on this is simply spin - come on, we are not stupid. The other messages that have come up about a DVR upgrade are completely different than trying to get people to upgrade service.
This WAS A PAID advertisement - it was was /paid/ for by US (i.e., your paying customers) and was an advertisement for AT&T to try and convince others to go to a higher level of service.
AT&T - use snail mail or advertise on TV in a normal commercial, but do NOT interrupt our viewing - especially when we are already PAYING YOU to watch in the first place.
There is enough crap on the TV screens to begin with, stupid logos for each station in the bottom corners, stupid animated crap advertising upcoming shows, etc.; things like CNNs banner running across the bottom.
We have ENOUGH distractions - the last thing we need is our TV service interrupting what little of the show we already can see.
Do not try to spin as informing customers of anything - you were plain and simple trying to upsell and if you try to frame it any differently then you are flat out lying and you dang well know it.
