I received a letter from Comcast yesterday saying that the free ESPN-HD preview will end Thursday, Oct. 2. I am currently only subscribing to limited cable (ch. 2-22) because I was told 30 days ago that I would continue receive all digital locals plus ESPN-HD and INHD with this service. After a long, frustrating, and irritating call to Comcast, I learn that I must subscribe to at least the expanded basic service (channels 2-78) to continue to receive ESPN and INHD. I was transferred to the HD CSR who informed me initially that INHD was a pay-per-view service only! After I explained that it was not and after she had conferred with other "highly knowledgeable" reps, she confirmed that no, it was not actually pay-per-view. I am a DBS user with a DVR and I want to continue using that service, but I am stuck between using my highly valued DVR and receiving the much more convenient Comcast HD service. I suppose this is the price we pay for being early adopters. Obviously the ultimate solution is a DVR capable of recording OTA local digital channels and other HD programming from satellite (which is clearly right around the corner, but at a very steep price).
