  • Rant: Comcast

    Comcast is a freaking joke. I am tired of their company, their BS tactics, etc. Even worse, I am stuck with them!

    Time Warner is just as bad.....

    If/when I move....I'm going back to DirecTV.

    How are you stuck with them.....? Go to a Sat Dish....

      Cannot have a dish at my apt. They do not want them mounted outside. When I live in Mankato, I had Hickory Tech. Super cheap and great. Plus, a local company so any issues and you could walk in and talk to them.

          Not sure if this helps, but if the price of Comcast annoys you, call to cancel. Very important that when you go through the phone prompts you choose to cancel. And if asked why, mention a dish. They hate dishes. I do that every 6 months when my current promo is set to expire, and without fail they make a deal. I also like to haggle, so don't take their first offer. Hem and haw a bit. My last deal got me a $30/mo credit on my bill. They tried to offer me $10, then $20... I didn't wanna push it any further than that.

          I'm not a legal scholar, but if you fancy a fight, you might be able to argue with your apartment: http://www.fcc.gov/mb/facts/otard.html

            Depending on the way your apartment is set-up, you can still have the dish. You would have to have some sort of south facing porch, balcony etc.... that you could put a freestanding mount for your dish that isn't actually attached to the building.

            From powerfulpup's link:

            Q: If I live in a condominium or an apartment building, does this rule apply to me?
            A: The rule applies to antenna users who live in a multiple dwelling unit building, such as a condominium or apartment building, if the antenna user has an exclusive use area in which to install the antenna. "Exclusive use" means an area of the property that only you, and persons you permit, may enter and use to the exclusion of other residents. For example, your condominium or apartment may include a balcony, terrace, deck or patio that only you can use, and the rule applies to these areas. The rule does not apply to common areas, such as the roof, the hallways, the walkways or the exterior walls of a condominium or apartment building. Restrictions on antennas installed in these common areas are not covered by the Commission's rule. For example, the rule would not apply to restrictions that prevent drilling through the exterior wall of a condominium or rental unit and thus restrictions may prohibit installation that requires such drilling.
            Q: Does the rule apply to condominiums or apartment buildings if the antenna is installed so that it hangs over or protrudes beyond the balcony railing or patio wall?
            A: No. The rule does not prohibit restrictions on antennas installed beyond the balcony or patio of a condominium or apartment unit if such installation is in, on, or over a common area. An antenna that extends out beyond the balcony or patio is usually considered to be in a common area that is not within the scope of the rule. Therefore, the rule does not apply to a condominium or rental apartment unit unless the antenna is installed wholly within the exclusive use area, such as the balcony or patio.

              If price is the issue, Powerfulpup has the right idea. I called to cancel our Comcast at the end of our trial and, after some talking, offered TV service at about half price and 25% off internet service.

              It is true that apartments or townhomes can not restrict you from getting a dish as well. I argued with our landlord and showed him the law until he gave in. Just don't need it now.

                I don't have a patio or a deck. Dish would have to sit in the living room or bedroom. Haha!
