Cable STILL out! Been over 4 weeks. NO returned calls from Paul and same message on machine, waiting for parts credit will be issued! Yeah, right! I would have to say that he either owes money to some other company, or completely went out

System down for over a week on most channels. No response to any phone calls. They just have a recording that says technical difficulties but no time line for fixing the problem. Worst cable experience I have ever had. We will switch to

Anametrics is a joke. Cable has been down for seven days now. Reason. Technical issues. Ok but a week. Not with the money you save. I will be switching to time Warner. If you need cable do not call them. Not worth the aggravation.

I have Anametrics and wish I would have switched sooner. I have their DVR and it beats what the other guys have. It also didn't take me a half hour on the phone to talk to a real human.

If you can get Anametrics you're foolish not to. I

There is a reason its cheaper than the others. Your cable is fuzzy, even the "HD" channels. The internet comes and goes. And when you call for help Tereasa in the office is rude and yells at the customers. It is not worth the few $$

HDTV without a box! Internet that gets me where I have to go. A monthly charge that my family can live with? Instead of sending thousands of dolars to a giant mega corp, I do business with a local, family owned business. No brain required.

I get all my favorite HD and digital channels. I have internet that is great, I watch the channels I like and pay about half the cost, I even have a great DVR from them.

When I talked to the owner, just try that with FIOS or TWC, he asked me what I liked on TV? He recomended a package that had everything I wanted. I went to his show room, tried the net, looked at the channels. Two days later I was hoked up. I could not believe how simple it was. He spent more time explaining how everything worked than it took to switch me over. It was very simple and I'm saving about $780.00 a year.

Thank you Anametrics

I got a few postcards from this outfit and thought it had to be a scam. I was wrong.
So I went to their office and looked at what they had, it was nothing like the negative reviews. A lot of HD, the speed test I did came up at 9.5 megs, the phone worked great and the DVR was killer. I kicked myself for not switching sooner. I mean it's not rocket science, it's cable, internet, phone and DVR and these guys know how to do it and save you lots of money. The HD, amazing!

I took their package with phone, internet and DVR and love it. I feel like an idiot for not switching two years ago when I moved in. I read a review and thought they could not give me what I needed, I threw over $1000.00 out the window by not having them for the last two years.
I was so wrong and so are the negative reviews. Anametrics told me what I would get, how much it would cost and that is what I get. My next door neighbor had fios and now has Anametrics.

Don't be an idiot, don't waste money. Support a local business and call Anametrics.

Update: 9/24/11 now getting even more, love these guys!
Dozens of digital and HD.
I'm getting more channels with Anametrics, HD too and I'm paying a lot less. I use their Standard internet and it reads around 3 m down anytime I try a test. They have a faster speed and I tried it for a while, it was a lot faster but I really don't need it. I just get e mail, shop and surf a few sites for things. The phone service from them works well too and I was able to keep my same number.

I have all my favorites in digital and HD, phone, internet and I'm saving over $600.00 per year, what's not to like?

I've had Anametrics for several years now. Bought a condo and found that they were able to provide service so I gave them a try.

Anametrics is a local family owned business and I like that. I support local business when ever I can but that's not the only reason I stay with Anametrics. True, I do save hundreds of dollars each year with them but I enjoy the service and attention that I receive with them. I'm not just another account number with them.
I have a large flat screen TV and I do not know what another reviewer is talking about with the channels. The picture is really good. I did a channel scan because they added more stations and I receive 128 channels with the package I have and it includes 75 or 80 digital & HD channels. I also use their internet and phone and love it. One bill, no problems.

Thanks!

It's really sad when the owner of Anametrics cable has to answer and give reviews to his own product. When you are selling an antiquated product to the unsuspecting you will result to these type of tactics.

I am not a TWC employee but a former Anametrics customer that lives in a condo. Had Anametrics for 60 days until I canceled due to the poor picture quality and lackluster service. Anametrics bills you in two month cycles in advance which is to their advantage.

It is not a licensed cable company provider but a "master antenna" system for condos and apartment complexes. It does not pay a cable franchise fee to the Town of Amherst since it is not a cable provider. Anametics advertising promotes themselves as a cable provider which they are not. Just an elaborate smokescreen on their part.

They are a two to three man operation. The owners wife answers the phone, answers questions etc. She is the office and hub of the operation. The owner does all the installation and repairs. He uses other providers cable in pre-wired buildings. Wiring is left hanging on buildings in an unprofessional manner.

Channel selection is like you went back to 1982. You will get a clearer picture with a set of rabbit ears. When I left, they had 4 HDTV stations. They promised more but you will be lucky if you ever see them.

They make a lot of promises that they never fulfill. They claim their internet service is fast but will never tell you their upload and download speeds.

My recommendation is to stay away from this organization. If you need a cable provider, stick with Time Warner or Fios.

Bought a townhouse in Amherst about 6 months ago. Signed up with this outfit because of the price. Lesson #1 you get what you pay for. Picture quality is very poor. Had all kinds of problems with my internet connection. When I called

First, a question for the negative people here about Anametrics? How long have you worked for the local cable franchise? Tip for those like many here, CATV stands for community antenna television. MATV stands for master antenna television, SMATV stands for satellite master antenna television. There are no "loop holes" they are called "laws" the Cable Act of 1984 and the Telecommunications Act od 1996. The "law" is not a "loop hole".

If any of what any of you has been true, how would we be in business for so long? Why would so many of our customers pay us by the year, in advance? Why would so many of our customers stay customers and still be customers for so long? Why would their children and even their grand children be our customers? (Easy, they grew up knowing our brand and love it.) How many of our customers hate you? Last week we had 15 digital channels. Yesterday, 7/6/10 we added 12 more digital channels Over the next few months we are adding more bringing our digital offering to over 100!. We are then moving to an all digital format. Just MATV with a loop hole? No. It's called competition.

I am rating our service high because our customers do not like TWC. Our customers love our service.

Digital video, DVR, Digital Phone, and IPTV coming soon.

Pros: Low Cost Over 50 DT Channels Coming, more on the way

Cons: You save $400 to $1000/yr or more on TV. Is That a con :) ?

Checked into this provider and found out they only offer 4 HD television stations in their lineup! Channels 2, 4, 7 & 17 and that is it. Every wants to watch HD television so don't even consider this company. This company operates its company like it was 1982.

Internet service is listed as "fast" but they never tell you the upload or download numbers.

Why would anyone even consider this type of service?

This cable provider is a joke! They offer cable tv and internet and 5 HDTV television stations. They even charge you for the NFL Network as if it were a premium channel. Television picture is analog and not that good with many channels lacking clarity. Internet service is even worse.

The other one star reviewers are correct about Anametrics. Wouldn't put it past the owner to write his own reviews. I'm also a condo owner that experienced horrible reception and service. Turned it over to the Town of Amherst for claiming to be a cable company without paying any franchise fee.

You are better off getting amplified rabbit ears because you will pick up clearer stations than what is offered at Anametrics. As a condo owner, it was a nightmare as a subscriber.

I tried Anametrics television and internet service for two months before I switched back to Time Warner. Thought I would be saving money but you get what you pay for which is a terrible picture. TV picture quality was horrible and internet speed was no better than dial up. They bill you two months in advance so the customer has to stay for 60 days. Customer service is a phone call away where you are put on the defensive by the most obnoxious person I have ever talked to on the phone.

Waste of my time and money. Horrid is the best word to describe Anametrics.

I had the misfortune of buying a condo in 2004 in Amherst, NY where the previous owner had Anametrics Cable as their service provider. I decided to give it a try which lasted two days. Absolutely the worst television picture I have ever seen. Called to complain about the picture quality and the woman at Anametrics started yelling at me and stating they never have complaints. I informed her I was a new customer which infuriated her even further. This was day one when I had the service turned on.

I did some digging and found out at the Anametrics Cable passes itself off as a cable company in the literature they provide. In reality, they are nothing more than a master antenna system that utilizes the telephone lines to provide television signals to condos and apartment buildings in Amherst, NY. Called the town of Amherst and found out they are not a cable company as they do not have a contract with the town as did Adelphia at that time. If they were a cable company, they would have to pay the town a subscriber fee.

On day two, I called again and told them to cancel my cable television service. Found out from a neighbor that Anametrics is a two person operation where the wife answers the phone and the husband does the installs. The woman was indignant when I canceled and once again started yelling at me in a very unprofessional manner. I explained to her the picture on 85% of the channels was absolutely awful and those channels were all analog since they do not offer any digital stations.

All that I can say is stay away from this outfit. Buy a dish or sign up with Time Warner and you won't go wrong. You will receive the latest technology and not the 1970's technology that Anametrics offers. That old adage seems to be true; "You get what you pay for".

When I moved into an apartment in 2004 the Adelphia guy hooked me up to the Anametrics system by mistake, (they have two service providers here). I asked him why he couldn't get the internet working and he just said I'd have to call customer service. The next day a guy from Anametrics came out and said I was on his system. He was nice about it when I told him what happened. He said it happens a lot and asked me if I wanted the service? A few minutes later he had my internet on, fixed the firewall on my computer and programmed my TV.

I've had fewer problems with them than I had with Adelphia (now TWC). The internet works good and the service guy who hooked me up knows his stuff. I'm saving a lot of money and love it.
