The Official "Comcast Sucks!" Thread

This could also be called:

- The official "I paid for NBA League pass and can't see the best game of the year" thread.

Comcast is a joke.

Happened towards the end of the season last year too. Chasing _allas, and it seemed like there were two games that were on NBATV in the last 2-3 weeks (fortunately, that last one didn't matter because they'd already secured the division - but it was still a pisser).

i lived back east (DC) a few years back and referred to them as CON-cast because they love to fatten their wallets by sneaking extraneous costs into bills...

my advice to all CON-cast subscribers: scrutinize your bills closely before submitting payment to those scam artists...

Does anyone know how many games have been on NBA TV so far this year?

I know there are 3 in the next two weeks!
And I think I counted like 10 or 11 at the start of the season, though I didn't write them down anywhere. So, it's around 1/8 of the entire schedule (which may be cool, if your provider actually carries NBATV).

Back in the good old days (3 years ago), what is NBATV was NBA.com TV and was free - to everyone (who had digital cable that could see channels in the 440s), then it switched over to a service that the cable companies had to pay for - and Comcast didn't add it to their lineup. It's enough to piss off the Good Humor man (as a former boss used to say).

Ok. I'll go with 10 games.

That means that there are 33 games that I didn't need NBA league pass for.

14 - ESPN/ABC
10 - NBA TV
9 - TNT
2 - Local Washington Wizards games

So the league pass shows me 49 games for 189.99.


F'in !!!
