I have DirecTV and the thing that gets me is that I would have to sign up for 2 years. Needless to say, I still don't have HD (not that my tv would hanndle it).
Last month I bought a Panasonic 42" HDTV with a built in tuner. I did the automatic programming and ended up with my normal 2-99 channels and then a complete second set of channels that included 2-99 plus various HD channels and other channels that I could not normally receive through the cable package I own. I also got about 30 music channel. Everything worked fine until this week when the second set of channels starting turning into big pixels and most of the channels no longer came in. When I called Comcast they said I shouldnt be getting the second set of channels, HDTV channels or music channels since I don't own a cable box. They want $10 extra/month for the box rental. Does anyone know why I can receive the extra channels anymore. I'm sick of giving my money to Comcast (just waiting for some Verizon competition).
