I am switching to a digital cable economy package for my tv service. I think it comes out to 32.99 for the service with some 50 channels. But I have no idea what channels come with it. Because the only ones I can find on comcast.com are basic, expanded basic, digital starter, premier etc. no economy option....anyone help? zip code 49087. Thanks....
They have added such a package in our area too and I could find it at www.comcast.com after looking at my channel lineup under different packages. They removed all of the HD channels and call it economy!
Sorry, my mistake. Yes, the Starter has some of the higher channels and the Economy does not. And no, I have no idea what the price is. The economy appears to match that available when you have QAM tuner equipped tv and therefore will be the ultimate standard.
The definition of the Digital Economy package seems to have changed recently.
I looked at its channel lineup a few months ago, and then again two weeks ago.
It used to have SOME of the Extended Basic cable channels. No sports channels, no TNT or Syfy, but AMC and Disney and a few others.
Now, it is essentially "Limited Basic plus music channels."
If you're not interested in music, and have a digital tuner, there is NO REASON to get it, because it appears to be what you'd see if you ditched the STB and simply attached your TV to the cable outlet.
In fact, you'd be better off, because the STB wouldn't be blocking your local HD stations.
