Putting Fans First . org

Um right…

Comcast is upset someone else is starting up the Big10 network to cover sports? 

Comcast is putting fans first

In the commercial they said they don’t think it’s fair everyone has to so much pay to view those games especially the fans.  What?  What sporting events do you get for free on cable?  Keep in mind you are paying for cable… so it’s not really free! 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a sports fan in fact they mess up all my regular shows because golf goes to long, football goes too long on and on, sorry that’s not my point I’ll save that for another time.

They charge you for a regular movie but if you want an HD version it’s 2 bucks more…  Now they are moving all channels up to the digital range and that forces the consumer to “rent” their cable box.  Remember back when all the VCR’s and TV’s came “cable ready?”  The Cable companies didn’t like that because they couldn’t up sell us the technologies.  Now they say they say the new digital standards are to complicated to make all the equipment standard.  I’m sure it has nothing to do with the extra 7 bucks a month they are getting out of it…

You put a .org on something and it looks like some grass roots effort.  Just remember if the Big10 makes it to Comcast Cable.  You’ll still going to have to pay for it.

    That is profound. I am too distracted by my hi-speed DSL, myspace page, iTunes, HDDVR, plasma TV and grande mocha pumpkin frapuccino to process this right now…

    college football should be free for everyone & i will never pay extra for college football. the players aren’t paid so the fans shouldn’t have to pay

    Seriously… Comcast doesn’t give a rats @$$ about “The Fans”, they’re in the business of making money… which is fine … but they shouldn’t pretend to be something they’re not. If they were so concerned about their customers, they’d spend a little more time and money on keeping the customers they already have happy.

    I called Comcast. They didn’t know anything about the “Big Ten” Channel. I suggested they remove the ad! Then they mysteriously came up with “Putting Fans First” So where are we? What’s next? Will we get it or not?

    Never even thought about the college players not getting their share! Right on!

    The thing I hate the most about it is the fact they are trying to make it seem like they really care about the customer. Okay fine they want to show the college games. Don’t hide behind fake .org sites and grassroots efforts. The only reason Comcast or any organization uses this tactic is because they know if they came out and said it no one would buy into their message.
