Thread Details

Just got this offer in the mail:

Digital Starter with 1 HD/DVR receiver (HD/DVR free for 12 months)
+
Performance Internet
+
HBO (free for 24 months)

= $39.99 per month for first 12 months - NO CONTRACT - New Residential Customers Only.

After 12 months the price goes to $59.99 with an extra $9.95 for the HD/DVR receiver for the next 12 months.

Alternate Deal #1 - While on the phone the guy said that they were also offering Digital Economy TV with Blast Internet for the same price of $39.99

Alternate Deal #2 - Digital Starter with HD/DVR ONLY - No Internet - $29.99

Call 1-877-253-0489 which evidently is a subcontractor that Comcast is using to market. Could not get the deal when dialing 1-800-xfinity. Mailer claims deal ends on 3/31/13.

YMMV - I have no clue if this offer is available in all areas - worked in Northeast Indiana for me

Interested to see if anyone else can get this... Wondering if I can cancel my current plan which is similar but expires next month and have my wife sign up in her name... Probably not.

You should be able to. I used to always flip between my wife and I every 6 months to keep introductory prices until I settled with AT&T Fiber.

I have the same deal, but got charged ~$15 for the DVR + taxes, so about $55 a month.

Is this a good deal for a new customer? Sorry - I'm new to purchasing internet.

I read in the other forum that Blast and Performance speeds will go up to 50mbps and 30mbps respectively. If I sign up for Blast now, will my speed go up in May?

I also saw a deal for 30mbps for $29.99 for 12 months .. but that's for existing customers.

So sad, no go in Miami. I was super excited because we got all the way through to the point of putting in the address and then the "I'm sorry the address is not serviceable for these services". Transfered to customer service and the best they could do was $89.99. Frown

I had comcast installed on Saturday and the guy confirmed those speed increases you mentioned.

I didn't get a Dvr but probably want to change that. Anyone know how much more that will cost?

I just signed up for this. It was a "current promo" when I called to switch out my modem and they upsold me to the lower price. They sent us a refurb motorola dvr that's kind of nasty. The channel guide looks like something from 1985 with about 5 channels visible at a time. You can't even program it for what you actually subscribe to so most of the channels show as "not available". Can't see paying much for this thing.

Does anyone know of a good cable dvr with graceful guides? Something that approaches xbmc or other projects? I'm amazed they can still sell such a crude service.

I haven't tried it myself, but if you cancel service and get service in another persons name (spouse, roommate) then it should be considered as new service. Theres no way for them to say otherwise. On the downside you will be out service for a few days for the canceling and then installing part.

Assuming the prices are the same in your area as mine, it should cost about $17 a month for a dvr receiver. That's compared to having none, though, so if you're already paying $8-10/mo for the standard digital non-dvr, then they'll just increase to $16.95...at least that's what they quoted me.
