Complaint / review text:
Comcast has screwed me again. When the US changed from analog to digital tv we were told that if we subscribed to cable or satellite we would be OK.
There would be no changes in our tv service. I guess Comcast didn't get the message. Shortly after the change Comcast reduced their basic cable service to only the first 29 channels, which includes only the local stations and the local access channels. So, I bought a new HD tv with a QAM tuner.
For the past year I've been able to receive all the cable channels and the local station HD broadcasts by just plugging the tv directly into the cable outlet. I have basic cable and do not have a cable box. Comcast figured out how to beat this system, too. This week I can receive only 3 or 4 cable channels.
I can still receive the local stations.
If I want to receive the full lineup of cable channels I would have to pay an additional $15 per month for the box. Does anyone have any information on this dirty trick?
