After reviewing our TV watching habits, we realized we don't really watch Shotime (unless Dexter is on) and decided to drop it. When I called to cancelled, the imbecile who answered the phone initiated a conversation that went something like this:
Comcast: You have the preferred Digital Plan with Shotime. Did you want to cancel the other channels as well?
Me: What are the other channels?
Comcast: Some of the one's over 100?
Me: Could you be more specific?
Comcast: Not really.
Me: Look, I just want to get rid of Shotime and save a few bucks?
Comcast: OK. I will cancel Shotime and the preferred plan.
Me: Did I stutter? I said cancel Shotime.
Comcast: OK. I will cancel Shotime only.
$5 says he F's up the order.
Bottom line: All I want are all the HD channels, ESPN, the Golf Channel, vs, and Spike. Every year, my cable bill goes up as I get "more channels" I don't want or need. If this continues, I am going to drop it completely and go with DirectTV.
