ShowTime Tiny Picture Like the 1950s

Is there a good reason to subscribe to Showtime? The picture is the size and shape of a postage stamp. It looks like a broadcast from the 1950s. I feel like a dimwit for paying for this rubbish. The problem is never solved: Comcast blames Showtime, and Showtime blames Comcast. Maybe these companies should stop providing free cable to their employees until this garbage is fixed. The free channels, such as Decades, MeTV, and COZI, offer a full HD experience. With Showtime, you get a tiny piece of piddle--I call it "PiddleDef".

Looks like the photos were removed. Not sure why (too big? copyright issue? Who knows, no explanation). Trying medium-sized.

Cancelled Showtime today. Problem solved.

 

Also, downgraded from Preferred tier to Standard. (I'd originally selected Preferred mainly for the TCM channel, but recently that channel was abruptly removed from the Preferred lineup.)

 

Those two changes will save more than $20 per month.

 

Next, will phase out set-top boxes and eventually Comcast TV altogether.
