OT: Comcast

14

Just an FYI, I recently called Comcast to see if I could save some cash on my monthly bill. Currently I have Cable TV and Internet through them, along with and HD-DVR and HD programing. Back when I upgraded to get the DVR, they told me I had to sign up for the "digital classic" service or above, the basic anaolog cable didn't work with their DVR's or something I guess. Well anyways now that Comcast has switched everyone over to digital programing I thought there might be a cheaper package available, and I was right. "Digital Classic" is basically what they are now calling the "digital starter" from what I can tell on their website, (linked above in the title). It gives you about 100 channels of stuff, but most of it beyond channel 71 is junk. So I asked the rep if there was anything cheaper now that they had gone all digital and he said there was a digital package that was just channels 1-71 and it was about $10 cheaper than what i was currently paying, (I am not on any promo deals). I said great sign me up, and he said, "but wait theres more!" This package also included the Starz channels at no additinal cost! I asked if it was some promo that was fall off after 6 months or a year and he said no, no promo, it is just part of the package, but they don't advertise it. So now I got digital cable, with and HD-DVR, channels 1-71, plus the HD channels in the 700's, plus all of the Starz channels, all while still getting the ondemand programing, and my high-speed internet. And I am paying $10 less per month to get it, not a bad days work imo. :)
