ID and password

I can't get signed in to watch tv online, I have my ID and password already but it doesn't work for online tv. I was told I could watch already since I am signed up for tv and cable - before the installation - but the app won't accept my email and password. It says I can't even have a "@" in my ID.

Just got a call from someone saying they were from AT&T

Said they needed to update our receivers and that they were going to give me a $30 credit on my bill every month for the next two years but they wanted me to send them $160 now that I would get back in 2 months. Total scam!!!!
