[HELP] Digital Starter to Blast Plus Promotion

[ Edited ]

I'm currently using Digital Starter package. If I were to add Blast Plus (Double Play Internet + TV), basically; Blast HSI 50 Mbps + Digital Economy.

 

1. Would my current 2x MOTOROLA MOPCUDTA (DTA Boxes) still work on Digital Economy trier?

 

1a. Would I get all the adveristed 45+ channels?

Re: [HELP] Digital Starter to Blast Plus Promotion

After searching around, here's what it boils down to IF I were to add Blast Plus.

 

1. I would get 50Mbps

2. I get downgraded to a lower trier from Digital Starter to Digital Economy.

 

 

BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!

 

 

My current exisiting equipment x2 DTA (MOTOROLA MOPCUDTA) will not work with Digital Economy. Why not?

 

Current DTA boxes will ONLY tune in

  • Limited Basic
  • Digital Starter

So if I were to add Blast Plus with Digital Economy, I would only get channels 30 or below (anything higher than that will give you a black screen). Therefore NOT 45+ what Comcast advertised. 

 

Well, how would you fix this? Swap x2 DTA to your local Comcast store and get a top-box for $9.95/month.

 

 

That's a well-thought out scam isn't it? Good thing I did my research before I ordered it. Buyers beware!
