My life is a series of inconveniences. Not outright disasters, but I could make a huge list of the things that have happened to me or that I’ve done to myself. One of those things is canceling my DirecTV.

It really wasn’t what I wanted to do, but I kept getting errors about losing satellite signal. DirecTV said they’d send someone out for $90 or so and I couldn’t think of any other way to figure out what was wrong. It was pretty obvious when the tech got here that my neighbor’s oak was getting so large that the dish needed to be moved. After some fiddling around, the tech told me that there were no places he could find with a clear shot and I might just have to cancel.

That meant no football.

I think it took about a week before I signed up for Comcast.

Now I have Comcast, with TV Japan for my mom, though I had to sign up for TV & Internet to get the newest DVR. It’s a little silly since that means I have Comcast Business Internet and also Comcast Residential Internet. I figure that’s just what I have to do to get the level of cable TV service I want.

One thought on “Comcastic.”

  1. I was with Comcast for years so my monthly payments had crept up to what equates a car payment. I hated it. Terrible internet speeds, I couldn’t stream anything without interruption. I finally cut the cord with a Roku box and a subscription to Sling TV. They have “mini” channel packages but I don’t see a Japanese mini right now. Maybe they’ll have one in the future when you think about changing again. Sling TV is around $25/mo.

    Playstation Vue does something similar to Sling but I thought their interface was confusing and I don’t see as many foreign language channels.
