    Knoxville, TN- Cable Pro of Knoxville has for years had to put man hours and money into the problem of cable company clients who were delinquent in their payments. The practice has traditionally been that cable customers who persisted in not paying their bills would, after three notices, have their cable service cut off until their account was settled. While this practice has been successful in rooting out non-paying customers, it still costs the company an estimated $60,000 per year in lost time, and man hours.

    But recently Cable Pro president, Larry Maezell experimented with a new idea that has so far been very successful. Now, instead of canceling a person's service, or sending him or her repeated notices of delinquency, Cable Pro simply changes a customer's subscription preferences resulting in his or her service becoming 24 hours of the Trinity Broadcasting Network on every channel.

    TBN is an excellent example for why this nation hates Christianity so much. This cable company only capitalized on that emotion.

    Clever.

    Funny! It would be interesting if a cable company actually tried this!

    (It's a humor site.)

    Noticed that too. I'd be willing to bet it's a hoax. :)

    $60K is almost exactly nothing to these guys. They spend many times that amount on advertising a month.

    TBN has some good programs. Dr. David Jeremiah every Sunday morning at 9:30 here on the east coast is one.
