Comcast Corporation Message Board

  • basically asking do you watch us? and why not? I think CNBC has the Disney disease... they are only for the rich anymore. All they talk about is yachts and homes and Cramer spouts off about large cap stocks that have no growth or life left in them like Verizon and Bristol Myers. Yecch! Has CNBC lost all touch with traders and investors? Probably. And no #$%$. No women on CNBC showing the girls. Or legs. That always helps.

  • If you own your own home, buy a big dish for your backyard. Screw the cable and satellite companies. Pull them down from the sky on your own. Costs about a thousand dollars I think. Some old owners are selling them on Ebay. I am not talking, kiddies out there, about the Dish and Direct TV teeny tiny satellite dishes. I am talking about man sized satellite dishes eight to sixteen feet across. You pay for them... nobody comes and installs them and gives them to you for free. But thats it. Four hundred channels across the sky for free forever. Why do anything else. Apartment people are kind of screwed there. No lawn for the dish.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Comcast is perpetually confused because it has gotten too big.

    Of course, the most annoying thing is the effort required to hold their monthly rates at bay. At least once a year, I have to switch to another so-called "new promotion." Keep in mind that Comcast never publishes the rates for their alleged promotions.

    Recently, when I switched to a new promotion, they charged me $17 in fees for, as they put it, "signing up for a new plan." I didn't switch to a new plan. I get the same channels.

    Right now, I'm trying to find another service that I can use for cable broadcasting. The problem is DIrectTV, AT&T, and DISH Network all collude with each other in a price-fixing scheme, making it impossible to get
    better rates. So, I have a choice between fascist business monopoly A, B, C, or D.

  • Nope, just an individual investor. As it happens, I do own some VZ shares thanks to the Vodafone transaction. But I'm a customer of Comcast and a believer that in the end, the way companies treat their customers is the way they treat their investors.
