Does Comcast offer any discounts for senior citizens, disabled veterans or the disabled on a fixed income?  That would be a great way to help those who want Comcast but cannot afford it without a little help with the bill.

In some service areas, yes. For the information for your area please contact Comcast via phone or chat: http://www.comcast.com/Corporate/Customers/contactus/ContactUs.html

I would like to know why Comcast does not have that program where ever they provide their service? Why in only a few areas. There are elderly on fixed income all over New England. I cancelled my cable tv service because my budget was so cramped. If the government made a law that cable companies had to make that available why is it not inforced? When I inquired at the local Comcast office they told me that it was the responsibility of the town to agree to that plan. What does the town have to do with it?

I am being told one thing by one rep and then again something else by another.  Then they finally say Washington has a veteran discount.  My husband is a disabled veteran and is 62.  So why am I getting the run around?

We are retired and on a fixed income and only subscribe only to Comcast’s Performance Starter. This can allow for great TV as well as internet service for less tan 50 bucks a month. Many Comcast subscribers just aren’t aware of this option and Comcast does not actively promote it. It’s a perfect solution for those of you who are sick of seeing continual price increases as well as paying triple digit monthly bills and, as far as I’m concerned, it is well worth the sacrifices. I’ve posted about it elsewhere on the Comcast site but you can click on this link to read more…

Hi there,

Thats a great idea helping the fixed income.

From my research Comcast doesn't offer much in the way of helping people

As you know Comcast is the only game in town and the problem is they "KNOW IT"

They can charge what ever they want, you pay or don't receive the services.

Well do they give A Discount for disabled senior citizens or AARP members or any  groups.   If Not Consider the affect if they do ! Seniors that would not have to change companies yearly just to stay alive and would be constant income to comcast. What an alligance.
