I recently attempted to help my elderly mother in law with a Comcast issue. Her cable box was damaged in a storm. We were told the fastest way to resolve it was to get a new one from one of the Comcast stores. While going to the store I was reviewing her bill and wondered why it was so high being that she only had their older legacy cable platform. Turns out for the past 2 years she has been on a X1 double play even though the set-top boxes that they provided only supported basic cable (no on-demand, no voice remote, no dvr, and limited channels). I was naive in my thought that Comcast would want to be a good service provider and citizen and make things right. I was so wrong! They basically blamed her for not knowing! we repeatedly ask to speak to a supervisor and was told "I don't have one at my house, but if I did they would tell you the same thing". Never once offered a credit or anything. I have to believe she is not the only one Comcast has done this to. Seems like since she is older they think she wouldn't notice. Often elderly people don't know what service they are supposed to receive. Over the past 2 years, she has had several technicians that have come to provide service, and not ONE of them informed her that the set-top boxes she had did not support the service she was paying for. This is one sad shady company. Glad I finally cut the cord with them. I still need to find a resolution for my mother in law.
