F... Comcast

And other large monopolies.

Comcast has the worst customer service ever. Already tried Direct TV and they tried to stick my grandmother with an extra $200 charge, and we were stuck with a dish on the top of our house for awhile since no one would come take it down.

Now there's an issue with the DVRs, someone has to come out and there's a service charge for them to come out to check their equipment.

In this area there's really no other options for Cable TV.

Lame.

Not available in my area.

I guess my area is still a little too low-income.

X2 but i had a small problem once and it was literally the worst customer service i ever received. They basically said we are not coming out to fix your problem but we be happy to come take out the whole system if you like and cancel your subscription. I just said whatever; they know no one wants to go back to Comcast.

The issue is if you watch on demand and stop it it doesn't restart where you stopped it. Drives me crazy.

Honestly, I housesitted (is that even a word?) for my sister last month and she has FiOS - it seriously made me appreciate my Comcast even more. FiOS OnDemand is a joke and it would cost me a ton more to get the same service in my apartment compared to what Comcast charges.

Having said that, they're all a huge rip off.

Re: F... Comcast

Time Warner blows.

I've had good luck with DirecTV though since switching years ago. No major complaints from me.

Satellite uses a different business model. You own the stuff. That Dish on the roof is yours...DirecTV doesn't give a damn about it. I've had really good luck with them. The only one that I have ever not had any issues with.

Re: F... Comcast

Hey question for Direct TV users, do yall have the internet service with them?

I like to bundle my service to save, I have Comcast with both the internet and cable...is it worth my time to look into Direct TV for both services?

Thanks

I've had the exact opposite reaction. FiOS has a clearer picture (less compression), an on demand menu from the 2000s rather than the clunky 1980s interface Comcast has, found the internet to be significantly more reliable and quicker. I really hate Comcast with a passion.

I have had all the major players; Fios, Comcast and D-TV.

I have to say if you have a clear signal D-TV is the best. Best picture, best interactive channel guide, and best channel selection.

FIOS is basically the same as Comcast internet wise and TV wise the only difference for me is FIOS actually stays on and works where Comcast was out at least 2 or 3 times a month.

The only reason I have FIOS over DTV is that in my current home has a poor reception for the dish. when I lived in NOVA it never went out or very rarely. I swear they send a more powerful signal to higher population areas.

I use Time Warner for my phone/internet.

At the time when DirecTV hooked me up they didn't have internet service in my area, and I heard it sucks anyway.

Yeah I have to say if I had to choose one thing FIOS does better then Comcast it is On Demand.

Comcast on demand is crap complete crap from the menu, too the selection, too never actually working, too like the longest wait times ever. How anyone could be happy with that service I have no idea.
