The Trap of Comcast.net

I admit I’m addicted to HD TV. It’s so clean and defined… old analog shows are fine… but I love High Definition, and I pay for it. Comcast.net is about to update my account and increase my bill. I just had a call into them to see how we can negotiate down, and the line went dead. This is not cool.

Do any of you have the triple bundle? phone, internet and HD TV? Around here that package costs about $114/month and it’s going up!!! Any suggestions? any tricks of the trade you can share? I need my phone, I need my internet of course… and the TV? I lived with basic cable for a very long time and it is BORING… so I kicked it up a notch…

Maybe I need to turn it all off and read a book. Appreciate your ideas people.

OK…here’s what I do…I have my fios internet in Franklin which is $54 a month…because my sister insisted…and I have my analog tv with an antenna which pulls in all the local channels and a few more, so they cost me nothing each month…which I admit, you can’t do on the cape…so, you have to have at least basic cable. My basic cable on the cape is…are you ready?….under $6 a month. I get all of the basic channels and then some. If you want movies in addition to that I’d sign up for netflix for $17 a month. And yes, I’d read more and use your library card often. You might consider also spending some of that time writing as well…since you are a very talented writer.

What makes you think that “up a notch” is any less boring than what you get now? In my humble opinion, it just takes you longer to click your way through all of the dull and boring shows. Zero time 200 still equals zero.
