Frustrated over big jump in cable bill

I've been a Comcast customer for decades, but recently was shocked by a 2X increase in my bill!!

 

I called to see what could be done to bring my bill back to something reasonable and was unbelievably frustrated by the response I received, which was that I could lose most of my tv channels and still pay way more!

 

Oh, and I was told that Comcast doesn't support cable cards anymore, so I'd lose my TiVo as well.

That's incorrect. FCC Rules require Comcast to supply and support CableCards: For reference the FCC rule is 47 CFR 76.1205b (see https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/47/76.1205).

Hi Krakem, apologies for your frustrations when calling in, I can assist going over current promotions with you and see if there is a way to save you monthly.  Could you please send me a private message with your account information (name on account, address and account number).

 

Also, I can confirm that Cable Cards are still supported with Comcast

 

Thank you

Thanks for confirming that cable cards still work - someone needs to tell that to the CSR team since they told me that they were "grandfathered in" and that if I decided to discontinue with Comcast I couldn't use Tivo in the future.  Rather dishonest statement I'd say.

 

I will private message you on my crazy high cable bill.
