    If you have xfinity/comcast stock sell it NOW!

    This cable giant has been ripping off it's customers for years (only because they're a mega monopoly).......

    Their latest assault on their customers (who are already locked in contract who enjoyed everything on demand free one week ago per contract) is to charge outrageous fees on everything on demand,I mean everything....

    If you have the premium and regular channels package, you now have to purchase a subscription for each one you want to watch on demand..

    The cost is 10 to 15 dollar per network all the way down to and including basic channels..

    If you were to buy an on demand subscription for lets say ,lets say 300 out of 1,000's of channels
    You would pay $3,000.00 to $4,500.00 per month!!!

    They know technology is going to bring their fortress down very soon..

    They are just going postal on their subscribers until their ship FINALLY sinks.....

    Did you go with the Sling Orange, Blue or both packages, are you happy with it so far? I guess Ive got to go with the Blue package so I can stream more than one tv at a time.

    later

    they are preparing their cable fall with xfinity mobile service. If they can get all their internet customers to go mobile as well, they will maintain a strong hold. Strength is quality of internet and cable compared to others. If they maintain it with mobile, they will continue to grow.

    I don't know how it is in every state? But if you have Comcast.... here's my advice...

    I'm in Michigan.... and usually you can find the name of your Regional Comcast Seller in your area. No, he's not technically a COLD SELLER. He's the guy or gal that can make things right... all he does is sales. You can't call the 800 number to find it. Also, placing an order through the internet is not a good idea either.

    The next Comcast advertisement you receive at your door... always keep it. They will usually put a name on it. Call the number and ask him if he's a regional seller for Comcast? Or a cold seller? The regional sales rep can do 10X more for you than the 800 number... and the retention department.

    They usually can save you around $35.00 a month off your bill. No extended contracts etc.

    they will still be doing well with the net neutrality ruling coming down. (sometime next two weeks i think?)

    no need to worry about ISPs.

    Don't forget they could wind up buying CNN to help the att timewarner deal.

    Somewhere in there is a way to monetize the customer more efficiently.

    Dont you hate companies that rip the citizens off, I came into one called Telecheck recently, oh my the complaints against that company, there's a reason why these companies stay in business and nothing ever happens to them.
