Is Comcast Cable Worth the Price?
The more I look at what is on cable TV in their show listings, a pattern emerges. Many of the movies repeat on the same or different channels at different times in the week. They are always at least 2-3 years old. The selection is redundant as well. I mean, just how many times will a movie be showed?
Then, there are the TV shows. If you are like me, I tend to watch only a handful (not more than 5 or so) constantly during the week. Thus, there are many times when cable is not satisfying and despite having 50+ channels, many are not interesting to me or simply trash TV or stations in other languages.
Yet, I pay about $75 a month for this. I still subscribe to Netflix to augment my TV\movie needs and it seems I actually get my money's worth out of them versus the Comcast, which for the amount of shows I need cable for, is a ripoff.
Why can't I simply pay for the channels I want because those are the ones I watch the most? Its like going to a large grocery store with so many choices that I could care less about. I know what I like, buy it. I don't have to buy a lot of items I will not need, want or use.
It is hard now to get certain channels unless you subscribe to cable TV, that is a monopoly that should be stopped. CNN is one such station. Streaming to the cell phone does not count. Who watches a movie on a cell phone?
Comcast is a cable monopoly that the government has allowed to happen. Satellite TV is really no better once the introductory offer expires and you pay the regular price.
I feel like I am a hostage.
