negreenfield said:I was on my drive home today and Comcast actually has a commercial about Voom going away and is including us in their ditch the dish get $400 deal. It was kinda funny because it started out as, "1 out of the top 3 satellite providers is closing their doors at the end of the month, but don't worry Voom customers, Comcast has you covered!" and then proceeded to explain that Comcast is offering us the $400 for ditch the dish for us too.
I was already scheduled for Comcast on Saturday the 23rd so I already told the CSR that I had a "satellite service" but expected to be turned down for the $400 when I showed them my Voom receipt, but apparently I'm in good shape. I'm still a little skeptical but I'll find out for sure on Saturday.....
BTW, I dont' know what regions this deal is in but I'm here in Atlanta. The $400 is spread out over 16 months.
I had the digital cable with HD before Voom, while it was ok, at the time it did not have WB or ABC in HD, which drove me nuts for Monday night football, and my wife nuts for her WB shows. I didn't have any premiums so my HD channel number was about 5. It's been almost a year since I've had Comcast, I'll report back this weekend after tomorrow's install...scottabs said:I'd l'm anxious to hear your comments on Comcast, especially since I am in the Atlanta (Roswell) area.
negreenfield said:Update: Got Comcast installed on Saturday morning, happened to be watching Real Madrid vs Valencia (man, I'm going to miss this, KungFu, and Monsters) and the guy asks, "What is this??". He was from Africa and seemed to be a big soccer fan so stood there watching for almost 5 minutes before we finally hooked up Comcast. Anyway, the guy never asked for any receipt or anything and had never heard of Voom, but hopefully I'll still get the $25 a month.
Anyway, my wife loves the On-demand already, the PQ is pretty decent, and the DVR is something I've been wanting for the longest time, and it's great to finally have it. Obviously going from 39 to 15 HD channels kinda sucks, and INHDs haven't had a single thing on yet I want to see (or anything in the near future checking the PG), but they do have TNT and all of the major locals so I guess it'll have to do for now...
I wonder if by some huge coincidence it was added during my install, but I could've sworn when i first turned it on I didn't have it, but then I looked about 20 minutes later when my box had been completely activated - unlocking the premium channels, I noticed it was there.roachxp said:Check your guide TNT-HD was added this weekend across the USA for Comcast, but if your local Comcast doesn't have bandwith space it will be a while. My TNT-HD will be added on Tuesday. Universal-HD is next on the list maybe next month. Since ADS has started it will free up more bandwith.
