I’ll never say $163.50 a month is reasonable for commercial TV. Let alone quite. This is not quite right or it wasn’t. I’m in the North Bay and earlier this year I added a new Premier and it was a nightmare. Things may have changed but… You get one set top box included with your Comcast account. If you don’t want it or need it you can get the first cable card free as you are already paying for it. The second card is at $1.50 only if it is used in the same device. I was able to add two cards this way as they thought it was for one TiVo when I first set them up a few years back. More cards for more devices are at a higher rate. The FCC rules are not that hard to follow. They even suggest a price of around $4 or so but Comcast chooses to break them. They are required to list the price of a cable card. They do not. The only mention of this was the $1.50 for the second card IN THE SAME DEVICE. They did not show what they charge for just another cable card. They are not allowed to up sell or otherwise require you to buy anything else or charge for installation or activation. But Comcast forces you to pay for a cable box bundle including an outlet charge and they then give you a dollar or two back for providing your own equipment. This is again breaks the FCC rules. What are you giving me a $2.50 credit for if you are not forcing me to buy something other than the card? You can look them up and file a complaint on the FCC website. I got a call from some upset Comcast guy sometime later and he just kept telling me that they were not breaking any rules and when I read him the rules and he just would not admit to it. But they did cut my bill in half for six months. Also, I was able to remove the HD fee and did not lose any HD channels. The down side is that when I had an issue with two of the channels not coming in randomly they kept trying to tell me that I needed that on my account and that was why the two channels would randomly go out for hours at a time.
