Just an update on my Comcast situation. Called last night to cancel everything, the lady offered me a special deal if I stayed. Standard cable for $19.99 for one year, plus $5 for the HD box, she said with that I would get back InHD, InHD2, ESPNHD and DiscoveryHD. I am skeptical since InHD and InHD2 appeared needing digital classic now. But she insisted the deal she gave me will include all four so we will see.
Will not get it until next weekend though, a tech needs to take a trip to remove the filter outside. At least they are trying.
I won't suggest everyone try this though, my account has logged so many communications about the lack of DVR and HD and the price increase that was apparent to her I was serious about leaving, and really it may sound a very good deal to many, but to me it is still a price increase since I have Dishnetwork DVR service, no need for anything other than the HD channels from Comcast.
Now if and when Comcast dual-tuner DVRs are out, I will seriously consider switching all my TV services to Cocmast with this deal in place.
That's a good deal. So before, you were paying for the basic cable of $12.01 w/ $5 HD box? You were able to get all the HD channels with the filter installed the whole time. Thats weird, I would think that they needed to remove it in order to get those HD channels. I guess not. After my promotion with Comcast, I'm planning ot switch Digital Classic, which is going to be more then what I'm paying now, with Plus and HBO. Oh wellz. At the end, going cable will cost a little more, but I have more then 1 TV, 3 HDTV to be exact. So going cable is reasonable. I would love to with DirecTV, but now with Comcast having KINGS in HD, I want to say a little longer =) I know KXTV will have it OTA as well, which I could get free, but hey, the more HD, the better =) So at the end, even though I really don't like analog, I will have to live with it for a while. I wish DirecTV will give me more reason to return to them. Like better HD PQ and Kings in HD =) I also like Comcast cable, that is why I sort of what to stay with Comcast due to that. I rather not go with DSL, looks like a hassle. Yeah, I cannot wait until DVR is out for Comcast. I know they will charge an arm and a leg for it, but hey, I'm only planning to get one so I hope it won't break my budget. So at the end, if I had to use dial-up connection for the net, I would rather get DirecTV as my provider =) But then again, I would pay a little more to get DSL =) decisions, decisions, decisions.
