She said the only provider in that area is Comcast and I know your specialty is OTA, but I'm looking for some answers about their service. They are telling her that she can get digital television with no HD and hs internet for 64.98. Over 80.00 for the install, ridiculous.
My question for you or anybody else who reads this is does this box that is supposedly "digital" only have component hook ups? It seems to me that she should at least be able to get local channels in HD, If so I'm going to give her some component cable to take with her, Maybe she can get some HD and still have a better picture then what's offered with just the rear cable hook up.
I work in Reston but live in MD so I can't really comment on the equipment. Here in MD, the digital equipment (model RNG110) does have HDMI, component and composite. The locals do not come in HD for me, so I bought an Antennas Direct antenna to cover that.
Word of advice on getting a better price from Comcast.. if possible, go to a local Best Buy or HHGregg and seek out a Comcast salesperson. You'll get a better monthly price and usually free install.
