Just got my bill. In it is this disturbing note:
Effective with October bills, due to higher costs of doing business including technology, service improvements, programming costs & gas prices, some monthly prices will increase and Dig. Preferred tier will be discontinued. Dig. Preferred customers will receive Dig. Classic.
Basic $15.99 to $16.99; Standard Cable $52.99 to $56.99; premium movie channels $16.99 to $17.99 each; Dig. Classic $14.99 to $16.99; HD-DVR Service $13.99 to $15.99; DVR Service $8.99 to $9.99; HDTV Equip. $7 to $8.99; new Dig. Starter Additional Outlets $5.99 each.
Does this mean I will lose the extra channels I get above Digital Classic? What plans will offer them? Will I be forced into one of those Silver/Gold plans??
It also looks like my bill will go up by $4 (standard cbl) + $2 (dig classic) + $2 (HD-DVR) + $2 (HDTV) = $10. According to the Comcast site, Classic is $1 less than Preferred.
The Comcast site is a mess. The Channel listing is missing some channels I do receive when I pick Preferred. It also shows that Encore is part of Classic?
Can anybody in the Schaumburg area with Classic + HD look at the .DOC file in the .ZIP file at the link and let me know what I might lose?http://home.att.net/~andyross/Schaum...e_Channels.zip
