I was informed a couple weeks ago about Comcast’s deal for basic cable subscribers: Free Digital Cable for 12 months for Basic Cable Subscribers. Also, you get all HBO and Starz channels for 6 months free.
Basic cable is the cheapest plan you can get. I pay about $18 a month. They already know I’m cheap, so why would they just give me hundreds of dollars of free service for an entire year?
Because they hope I’ll buy Pay-Per-View and pay to keep or add premium channels
What they don’t know is I’m a loyal Blockbuster Online subscriber. I’ll NEVER keep their crappy cable service. Actually, I had canceled their free service a month early last time we had it.
However, this past Wednesday, Comcast called me directly to offer their service. Turns out they really want to give me this free service!
I get 12 months free digital service, 6 months of HBO, 6 months of Starz, the box shipped for free, and they automatically cancel HBO and Starz at the end the 6 months!
I took the offer. Now I’m just waiting for the cable box. How could I pass this up?
Have any of you gotten this offer and declined? Can you justify your reason?
