BEAVERCREEK, Ohio - Try fitting this cable bill into the monthly budget.
An Ohio man says Time Warner Cable told him he owed the company $16.4 million.
Daniel DeVirgilio, of Beavercreek, says his payment was rejected because it wouldn't cover the total. His bill is usually $80.
DeVirgilio tells the Dayton Daily News he wanted to watch the NCAA basketball tournament's Sweet 16 but didn't expect it to cost a million dollars per team. He jokes he should have added Showtime to his channels because the charge of a few extra dollars doesn't seem big in comparison.
Time Warner says human error is to blame for the payment problem. Officials say a worker typed the wrong amount owed, and a letter to DeVirgilio was automatically generated. They're working to resolve the issue.
