I jus feel like I'm paying too much for what I'm getting and I was kinda tricked into my package(long boring story I won't get into). I have had bs added into my bill as well. Also, I hate how I have to wait on hold for years just to talk to people that don't know what the fck they're talking about. I've never had a charge reversed on my account but somehow there was a restriction placed for cash only...I learned that there's no comcast payment center anywhere near me. But I see other providers everywhere. They fixed it for me but still I hate them. I worked for them very briefly and I see how they scam people.

Pookie came to install cable in my salon on a legit call, I was JOKING and made a remark about "I wouldn't be mad if he put it in for free batted my lashes Embarrassed...then walked my butt back in to do what I do. Pookie comes in a after installation and tells me that I have to contact him if it breaks and I can't get premium channels. Don't know how Pookie does what he does, but he works for Comcast and can hook it up for free somehow.


You must have a nice ass. sh*t like this doesn't happen to me for anything I actually need. I get offered free purchases if I sleep with the nasty Arab at the liquor store.

I know someone who loves talking about the roku box...i would rather stream tv too.

Is Roku or Apple TV worth it? You still have to pay for individual shows or how does it work?

You pay for subscriptions, but I use other people's Netflix and Hulu. There are free channels and if you are like me and know people who will give you their cable information, you're good as far as ABC, HBO Go, Disney etc. I barely watch live tv nowadays so cable isn't worth it.

Lol, it was this dude back home who used to do it for $50, he made a killing. I got hookups at cell phone stores too.

I'm not happy.  I'm STILL with Comcast. Cry

I cancelled my account and returned the equipment Clap.  When I got home we were going to Best Buy to set up Directv/Att DSL.  While I was gone SO decides that DSL sucks and he wants cable internet.  He says he will set up a Comcast account in his name to get a cheaper package.  I am against it, but I let him have that after going back and forth. Now HE would have to deal with them and not me.

Once he selected a package he told the guy over the phone that he wouldn't need a technician and he would pick up the equipment from the Service Center.  He drives all the way there to be told that his service had been cancelled the same day he set it up.  So he set up the account again in person.  Then he gets home and I see that they gave him the OLD silver motorola box instead of the new x1 we had...they had not explained to him that you can only get x1 if a technician comes out(and he obviously didn't pay attention to the wrapped cable box they gave him bc he was upset at being in line for an hour).  That's the real reason why his account was cancelled by the guy over the phone(without telling him).  He had to swap out x1 for the regular self install stuff.  He didn't choose a technician home setup because the soonest date would be FRIDAY.

I would have known that x1 can only be set up by a technician had he asked me, but he didn't.  But the customer service agent over the phone and in person should have said that.  This platform is SO OLD.

So basically he spent all afternoon on the phone being bounced around to get things sorted out.

He should've listened to me.  I laughed.

Depends on the kind of TV viewer you are. It's not a cable replacement but if you don't watch much live TV then it's worth it. It's pretty much all I use now except when I watch sports. There are a bunch of free channels on there but I don't use any of them. I use amazon player, netflix, hbogo, and youtube.
