Comcast is the the USA's biggest cable company. All my family and friends have Comcast and the customer service is knowledgeable and up to date, very friendly.

Comcast is a joke.
They compress the heck out of their their signal, so the HD picture you get looks like crap compared to DirecTV.
DirecTV has more bandwidth available, so they don't compress as much.
Let's not even get started on their on-screen guide, which looks like something out of MSDOS from the 80's.

You must be in an apartment complex.
When I was in an apartment, they tried to get me to sign up with them.
I got DirecTV instead, put it on my deck and have not looked back since.

Comcast is terrible. They keep increasing their fee and decreasing channels. Canceling my service with them was also a hassle. I guess they thought if they gave me a hard enough time trying to cancel it I would just give up and keep it. Wrong! That only fueled me to keep at it. The day I got rid of them was the day I started saving a ton of money each month by getting a Roku box and Netflix. For sports I watch on broadcast channels and online.

So speaks the voice of reason F**K comcast and the other pay loser broadcasters.

Take control of your lives, stop being passive, save a minimum of $400 a year (ie $600 of your pre tax income) and get a f888ing life.

There are a myriad of media options out there, alternately get a life and watch less of this sheet.
