Paying the Price for Premium Content

Comcast Cable TV is one of the nation’s largest and successful providers of cable television services as well as Internet Services. I’ve been a customer of theirs in two separate states which gave me two separate experiences with them; one where the service was excellent while the other left me with a bitter taste in my mouth, making me wonder why the difference happened. Is it because of the cable infrastructure being poorly developed in one area and not the other? Is it the quality of workers in an area over the others? Many of their installation techs are actually contracted out so that could definitely be the case.

I’ve never had a lot of work as a cable television subscriber. I don’t know why it is! Most of the time I just use Netflix, Crunchyroll and Hulu but I also use the On Demand access that Comcast offers – I just wish it wasn’t so expensive! I would rather pay for a single show or a channel instead of being forced to pay for ten channels when all I want to do is watch the one! I really think consumers are looking for this kind of flexibility – a build it your own packages would be awesome.

I’ve grown up with the Internet. I’ve used the Internet for my entertainment for almost all of my life up until this point. It’s only in the past couple of years where I’ve signed up for Comcast so I could watch shows like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and Spartacus. It’s the premium content that I want more than anything, content that I simply cannot get through other avenues. It may not always be like this but for the time being if I want to be entertained by these shows, I have to pay the price.
