This is Comcast For You. No Warning. My TV Today.
I had basic cable, now I have this.
Comcast tried to tell me when I called I must have a super old TV, but I found out later that comcast is scrambling all HD signal and charging on their network to unscramble, even to limited basic cable users. It's a "mo' money for us" thing. Greed.
I don't give a crap if something is HD or not. My eyes are bad anyhow.
I'm torn now on what to do. My older brother gets me internet/limited basic, in the required bundle (you can't get internet without limited basic with comcast) as a revolving b-day present. However, I don't ever hear from my brother. It's his account. I can't alter anything or rent equipment under it. Not that I think it is right, what comcast is doing, to embezzle more money from struggling souls. So I'm torn. But I'm not staring at a red comcast blood money screen for more than another day. If I don't hear from my brother, I'll have to send him a letter and hope he might read snail mail. And then I'll disconnect from the greedy scum that comcast has become. That will also mean losing internet access.
