My latest bill - $90 "Expanded basic" was $55, digital was $16 (actually a good price for all the channels you get), plus converter boxes.

I complained and got a promotional deal that gets it down to $70, but geezus... I'm tempted just to Netflix or download the shows I watch, and use Arfcom as cheaper entertainment

With tax and employee discount... $25. I have a basic package plus HBO, Cinemax, and TiVo (real TiVo, not some no-name box).

The reception sucks.

I'm paying $0 because Comcast is too incompetent to actually show-up for the install. The first install date missed was over 18 months ago. The latest one was two weeks ago. They have a government-protected monopoly here so the service is horrible.

Of course I'm not fighting that hard to get it. My neighbor's Comcast service is mostly static, and his cable modem only works about half of the time. I'd just like to be able to watch college football on ESPN. Comcast's picture on ESPN is clear enough to tell what is happening.z

I live in north Kansas City. My total bill with taxes is roughly $95 month for both cable (72 channels) and Road Runner cable internet. This minus the digital cable box, which I returned to shave $11 off my monthly bill.

It really seems ludicrous when I stop and think, that I'm dropping almost $1,200 a year on cable tv and internet. However, I use them both heavily and don't drop a lot of $$$ by going out often like I did in my younger years. So I guess I'll chalk it up as in-home entertainment.

Get ready to pony up for the box again, because if you don't have one when everything goes digital, you won't be watching anything.

Happens more often than not. Depends on if they have access to the pole or wall box. If its a nice area, they will try to do a TAKE BACK and sell them, if they dont get the sell than they cut em. If its a shit hole neighborhood, they rarely bother with the Disco, not worth it.

Netflix is a good deal. The only drawback is now I watch WAY more TV then I used to.

I just switched over to DirectTV from Cable and it's cheaper I think. But the big plus is the picture is OUTSTANDING and I get NFL sunday ticket.

I would have stayed with cable except for two things....Direct was a tad cheaper with the special they're running and cable doesn't have NFL sunday ticket.


(by the way, if you're thinking of switching let me know..I have a coupon code that will give us both a $50 visa card AND a free additional DVR or HD reciever.)

You're welcome.

O, here is a link to the website dedicated to my brand of FTA box.

I pay for interent and basic cable ($59) because internet alone is $60, i save a dollar so I get basic cable for the hell of it, though i have over 600+ channels (all PPV, Movie channels, Porn, etc... also) and Sirius Radio for free.
