If you already have a digital TV and feel screwed by the recent changes, simply disconnect the cable box and run the cable directly to your TV.
I have way more channels with just the basic than I do through the converter. I used to have a decent line-up, but since their so called "programming error" where I was getting channels I wasn't supposed to get, the digital line-up just isn't worth the cost anymore.
And don't believe that BS about programming error. This is a marketing ploy to either force or guilt customers into agreeing to purchase channels they "were" supposed to get to begin with. Hence, the whole reason you had them in the first place.
Frankly, Comcast is just too big to give a rats backside about any one customer, or even any one small group of really P.O.'d customers. Only a large dissatisfied customer base will effect any change in this monsters path.
STOP FEEDING THE MONSTER!!!
Give them their *** box back and change your account back to basic.
