I live in a traditional house built in 1930’s that would not suit having cables stapled to walls. That was my main reservation when the salesman from a well known telecommunications company cold-called. Told me if I didn’t have 155 channels I’d be depriving my children, that we’d not be in the ‘real world’. Then he quoted special deals and other offers – ‘So what about the cables?’ I asked. ‘Don’t worry, you’ll never see them' he answered, and so I went ahead. How naive I felt to find cord right across the room – the white cord was very conspicuous against the black hearth and wooden floor!
When I contacted the salesman I was told that the alternative route to the TV was even longer, and would have required cables up and around the door frame – ‘Our guys took the shortest path, that showed the least cable!’ I was supposed to be grateful, and was then assured ‘such a complaint happens regularly’.
When I asked why they didn’t cover the cable. I was told no such product exists! Well don’t be fobbed off... Get these companies told to D-Line-it!
