On Demand issues

I am only writing here because I could not find a customer service email, and I really do not want to call in again.  Here is a timeline of what has been going on with my OnDemand service:
Sun 4/9:  OnDemand picture is distorted and pixelated; cannot watch.  Call support and run through several tests and rebooting.  Nothing helps, so we schedule a service appt for Tuesday.
Tues 4/11:  Service comes and the guy isn't quite sure what to do.  I'm not sure what he ended up doing while he was there (I wasn't home).

Tues 4/11, evening:  OnDemand works at first, and then an hour later gets distorted/pixelated again.  Call support and again run through several tests and rebooting.  The person on the phone discovers that the serviceman replaced the battery while he was here; he is not sure what else the guy did.  Schedule another appointment, but this time no one can come until Saturday.  Schedule appointment for between 11 and 3 on Saturday.
Sat 4/15, 10:40 AM:  Verizon calls but I miss the call.  Call the number back and it takes me to the main Verizon center (wherever the 1-800 number reaches).
Sat 4/15, 11:08 AM:  Receive a text that says "sorry we missed you; please reschedule". 
As I understand, the serviceman is supposed to call and give you a 15-minute window of when he is going to arrive.  I missed that call but I was home at 11 AM, and no one came to the door.  Call support again.  The first guy tells me too bad, that's the policy and there's nothing they can do.  Hang up and call again, reach someone else who tells me they can schedule someone to come later that day.
No one comes later that day, no text, no phone call.
Is this really the way you operate?  I pay money each month to receive cable and OnDemand.  The customer service experience was extremely frustrating and did not fix my problem!
