I HATE DOLAN

Postby Lofunzo » Sun Jun 03, 2007 3:39 am

More specifically, I hate Cablevision. I am certainly biased but I am a Comcast employee that unfortunately had to move back to a Cablevision area. Hence, no more free cable, internet, and phone. :-t Just got my first bill and I was appalled. When I signed up, I was surprised that I could get the Silver package for under $70. Cool. Throw on a couple of boxes and a DVR and let's rock. Well, the bill is obnoxious. A few things stood out to me. I have 4 boxes, including a DVR. On my bill, I am charged for 4 boxes plus a DVR. When I asked them about that, I was told that I pay for the actual box ($6.25) plus the DVR service ($9.95). So, a DVR costs $16.20/month?? :-t I am also used to having the first box included with any digital package. I also noticed a random small charge of $1.50 on my bill. They said that is because I have a digfital package with premium channels and more than 1 box. What are the individual box charges for then??

Sorry for the rant. When I have a base TV package of $67.95 and my total TV charges are $128.79, I am not happy. I was expecting to pay a decent amount more than the base price but almost double?? :-o

Comcast does not do this but, apparently, they are missing out on some nice revenue. Might have to bring this up to management. :-D

Yep, highway robbery out of the cable companies. It's insane and you're not the only one paying way too much. :-[

Comcast is charging me 103.00 / month for Cable/Internet/HBO. There are weeks at a time where their internet is extremely unreliable and is off for 3-4 hours at a time. Very frustrating.

it ESPECIALLY suxx when I wake up on Sunday morning to check the results of the west coast games that ended after I crashed out and plot a strategy to pull off an H2H win and they are having mystery maintenance.

Do the stuff during the week while I'm at work please!!

I forgot to mention that my internet and phone service go down more than Jenna Jameson. I also think that $103 for both is a steal (unfortunately).

Dolan is the worst. He has to be one of the most hated people on Long Island. I don't miss his crap in the least bit.
Wasn't the Dolan family trying to make Cablevision a private company again? It will get worse if it does.

I'm Comcast's as far as I'm concerned; but it sounds better than Cablevision.
