I call them Scamcast.

My only real problem is the fact that I pay for 195 channels of crap and only consistently watch about 5. Most of it is like junk mail.

Comcast would not let me cancel. It was the old America Online Trick. I had to call them many times over a period of 90 days. I spoke to several different people at a time from India to who knows where and waited on the phone for them to pick up.

They kept saying all clear, you’ve been cancelled. And the next month i would get another bill.

I finally went on a marathon and would not give up. I pestered them for days until they finally canceled my service for good.

We have Brighthouse (formerly Time Warner Cable - I refer to them as Dimhouse).

The good thing is we also have access to ATT U-Verse so I can play them off against each other.

Every time I get a rate increase I either switch (or threaten to switch) and get a “deal”.

It’s kind of a headache but I’m retired and have time to play the game.
