i see starting in may our package deal monthly charge will increase, despite the promise that our bill of 119 a month will stay the same for 2 years and was happy that was true..but all things change with the outgoing tides of life. if you are not aware, we are practically paying with our SSI's. and of course if i say i want to have xfinity knock off some charges to preserve the 119 a month, the response of reps would suggest to downgrade our cable service. the sticking point is we like our cable lineup now. and with my internet, i need that for my business. so we are stuck like a rock in a hard place. we have been loyal customers since i can remember..i beleive we started in 2003? the only time we were late to pay was in 2005 when we first moved. dishtv and directtv gave us options that are still open and way below what we are paying now. so i guess for now, we must grin and bear with the new up coming charge. unless i can strike a deal/arrangement to avoid the new charge but i know that is next to impossible. because comcast needs to make money..but i feel all comcast corp wants is to make profit even though they already own several other corporations -nbc, fox, AT&T etc..still they squeeze the life out of us poor folk struggling to keep cable. both my parents are retired, iam a live in caregiver to my parents and am disabled. i miss the good ol days when we payed just under 40 dollars for cable.

i was kind of taken aback seeing how one of my fave channels is no longer on, viceland. it reminds me when i lost both tru-tv and spiketv. they were moved to preferred section. they drop fave channels, expect you to pay more. like holding fave channels hostage asking for ransom money. all the while our bill total going up and up. we love our current doubleplay package, my parents enjoy HBO channels.. i enjoy the regular cable channels, although i could do without all the spanish channels. over 3 dozen unwatchable stuff. we are really considering a move from comcast to dishtv. we got a great price of 300 channels for 80 dollars for 2 years, rate locked in. comcast and their dirty tactics are forcing us to soon become EX customers, thx comcast
