An extra 5.00 for the HDTV Digital Cable Box rental, then there's a sales tax and fee's on top. In comparison, the top package was $79 two years ago. I have the most expensive package, as it seems I cannot get a decent discount for dropping channels so it's either an all or nothing deal. On the bright side, there are plenty of West versions of the premium movie channels, which makes it easy to catch something that I have missed. The pricing structure is a total scam though, which is the reason why I'm looking for something better. I also have cable modem service, and you know Comcast must love me.
Also noticed that the NBAtv.com HD games on INHD were not blacked out recently, so maybe Comast has made a deal with them. ESPN HD finally showing some HD this week which is cool. Got to see IU and Purdue flame out in glorious 720p!
Really, I was all set on getting rid of cable for a while then they started offering HD so I had to check it out. And ofcourse, once I get down on the movie channels, they start showing lots of gems, which aren't on DVD yet.
