The country’s largest cable company has joined the race to get skinny.
Comcast has started ripping up agreements with cable networks and moving them out of basic onto digital tiers, The Post has learned. The changes mean fans of the affected networks could have to pay .99 a month, or more, to tune in.
Comcast Corporation Comcast Center 1701 JFK Boulevard Philadelphia, PA 19103 Dear Mr. Roberts, Comcast, CEO: I am writing on behalf of many of your customers who are paying money for services like triple play and not receiving the services. After going through the computer selections, we finally reached a human being.
I am contacting the sponsors for commercials that are appearing and letting them know that because of the inability of Comcast to correct this issue we will now boycott their products and services.
It seems only fair that the companies sponsoring your services should share some of the blame and pain of having your customers inundated with commercials and NO program content.
Comcast said the changes are aimed at providing customers bang for their buck.
“Our goal is to provide customers with the best value and most viewing choices,” Comcast said.
