So, like a lot of people out there, I’ve been reaching a point of frustration with the state of my television service. Prices keep getting higher and higher, and quite honestly, the quality of the product that Comcast is pushing out these days is far from adequate. Doing comparisons with streamed versions of channels and what Comcast is pushing out, it’s pretty obvious that we’ve reached the point where the streamed version of the channels. Couple that with some of the price increases in the service lately, and I’m starting to wonder just why I’m paying what I’m paying.
I actually started this exploration about a month ago or so, and my goal is by June 15th we’re going to have dropped Comcast as the tv provider and replace it with some combination of online services. We’re largely stuck with Comcast as the only true viable high speed internet in my area, which ultimately is going to be bad – the internet only price for Comcast is high enough that it’s going to eat into any savings this project might have.
My future posts will start detailing what I’ve been exploring, and what my opinions are of those options.
