Your Dad sounds a lot like mine, 20 years ago. He got so tired of increases he cancelled cable. I used to tape westerns on my TV and take the tapes over to him to watch. There are good digital channel signals available for free in my area. I can pick up stations 90 miles away. The older customers don't use most of the services that Comcast tailors for younger folks but they end up paying for the services anyway. Call Comcast and ask for customer retention and plead your case. If they can't help then vote with your feet and spend a little money to get him hooked up to recieve the free broadcast signals available. The increase in my Comcast bill this month was twice as much as my Social Security raise last month. So much for banking any of that money. The Comcast CEO makes in excess of 30 million a year. He should send your Dad a thank you note! Good luck and it's nice to see you looking out for your Dad.
