"Streaming" was probably not a good word choice, telemark!
My concern is/was whether or not the incoming digital signal provided by Comcast, included the necessary data for my Roamio to decode (?) HDTV on the upper channels where it is available. IOW, I didn't wanna find out later on that the less-expensive option - that still includes 220+ channels - would not display those channels in High Def.
One of the several "Chris's" <rolleyes> that I spoke with on Comcast's "chat" (all of whom I trust about as far as I can throw 'em) said - as you did - that both options included the sending of HDTV signals and that the only differences in the two plans I was considering was (up to) 25mbps vs 50mbps internet speed. But, as I stated earlier, even their slowest advertised internet speed is 10x faster than my current AT&T DSL.
The problem I have since found is that the cheaper "non-double-play" option (Digital Preferred TV + Performance Internet), reverts to a higher monthly total after all the promo periods end.....than the "Double-Play" option!! Soooo.......as Blondie sung, 'they're gonna "getcha" one way or the other', lol. I think I'm gonna choose the "Double Play" option with "NO TERM AGREEMENT" (promo price $89.99
, months 1-12; $119.99
, months 13-24; and $134.95
"regular"/rip-off pricing......which, of course, is "subject to change", lol).
THANX for all your responses, guys - RAY
