New shortchanging from Comcast
Tuesday, April 03, 2012 5:12 PM
So we had a Comcast tech at our condo today, fixing some things around with the cable modem wiring, and he asked if we wanted a cable box for the TV.
"No", I replied, "why would we? We just watch the local stations, when we even bother to watch TV, and they come in on HD via Basic Cable with no problem..."
Apparently, that will be changing. It seems that Comcast is going to start charging extra for HD channels this September. Any HD channels. Including local stations, already broadcasting for free in digital HD over the air. And Comcast is going to start charging for that...ROFLs.
Think it's safe to say, upon moving, we'll be sticking an antenna on the TV and be done with these idiots...
