It’s now a couple of weeks after considering cutting the cord. I do use Netflix, Google and Amazon to watch shows. But here is another revelation after taking my rented equipment back to Comcast. They offered me yet another deal and I took it. It was the “Blast Plus” package. With that I got 105 channels including HBO and 105mbps high speed Internet. My first bill came in and it’s about $75 total. Not much more than Internet alone.
With the Tivo system I installed it requires a cable card. The first cable card from Comcast is free. If you get a Tivo, don’t pay extra for HD service because the Tivo allows you to watch without an extra Comcast fee.
