Pardon the dissent, but I'm really down on Comcast trying to sell what's already available for free while hawking their dream of Docsis. As for the increase to 1000 on demand hd "choices"...pfffffft . If you can give me Docsis soon, great, but, Comcast, you can flush your "entertainment portal" junk. Didn't the downfall of AOL teach you anything?

Im still tiffed at Comcast because they wouldn't string a cable down my cul-de-sac. So, now I get to pay the same price for internet as Comcast, but get crappy 1.5mbps Qwest. At least DirecTV got their HD act together.

And the amount Comcast charges for On-Demand is ridiculous when compared to a Netflix account. I don't know anybody that actually falls for that scam. And they only had like 5 movies available in HD format at a time, and each was like 8 bucks to watch. Stupid!

Netflix is going "all you can eat" with their streaming catalog too.

Oh I love Comcast's speed. I just don't like the AOL-like "portal" scam they're trying to pull on people.

Comcast beats AOL, that's for sure. Comcast's Broadband screams. I have bought a few on-demand movies from Comcast, but their catalog is pretty skimpy. Their HD selection is pretty lean, too. I should look into Netflix.
