LMAO......have you actually ever tried to cancel Comcast??? They tell you it's easy when they sign you up(sell you) but in reality it is a major pain in the butt. After four phone calls and a trip to Journal Square office to return the equipment, it was finally done. Its easy to get. Easy to switch when you move, but my experience cancelling was a nightmare. oh yea....they continued to bill me two months after the equipment was returned. Best of Luck my friend.

Comcast just gave me Digital Cable with HBO, SHO, STARZ, extra tv box, internet supposedly the "blast" variety (SKEPTICAL), and VOIP phone for $105.00 a month taxes included. You don't have to sign a contract with Comcast, so if I get pissed at them, I'll look elsewhere! It's a love hate relationship.

There is a lot more wrong with Foxnews than just it's fuzzy picture.

LOL bolew! I feel your pain! It's even worse for me because I understand the language!

But as much as I rag on TFC, I actually do watch that channel quite a bit - for Philippine news, pinoycentric American news, and one Manila-based design/architecture show that a friend of mine hosts.

Anyway, about 10 yrs ago, a friend of mine bought her first home and moved to JC. She was born here and thought it would be fun to have TFC in her home and subscribed to it. When she realized how crappy 90% of the shows were, she cancelled her subscription. one day she mistakenly pressed 670 and found out that she was still getting TFC. That's how I found out that it was "free" in JC. That is, until this whole Comcast HD reboot, when they realized they'd been sending out the signal for free for nearly a decade.

I guess I'll have to rely on reading my news on the web, and watching my friend's show on youtube.

PS: Oi, yung nagmumura dyan, wag naman ganyan. Konting respeto naman, ok?

How true. Thanks for the laugh, bolew.

That's the correct price. Its been that way for quite some time now, i.e years. All of the On Demand Filipino programming is additional $$$ even if you are a 670 subscriber.

I think Comcast caught on to how interested this site, and consequently Jersey City is, in Asian Female/White Male relationships. Supply and demand people...

Thanks in advance!


The house next door to me got wired for Fios last week. I watched the guy do the installation. It took several hours and the guy had to leave and come back at least twice (not sure if that's normal). I saw him go up on the pole and run a new wire from the pole to the building. They say you should allow at least 4 hours for the installation. I think most of the work gets done on the outside of the house. Inside they use your existing coax and phone wiring.

So I am finally completely fed up with our Comcast service. Our picture constantly pixilates and freezes up so you can't even change the channel and more often than not the on demand isn't working. (Unavailable at this time...) We have made numerous phone calls to reset the box and had 4 different service guys over in a 6 month period. Still isn't fixed.

The basic-est basic one (what I have) runs about $40/mo when you add in the tax and fees. It's another few dollars to get channels like Discovery and TNT. Comcast has a deal elsewhere that's $29.99/mo for digital cable for a year, but for some reason it's not available in Jersey City.

I don't have a comcast DVR, just their digital cable. But yeah, both those channels come in fine. I'm pretty sure I've had them since they started airing those most recent HD channels.

Hi,

Does anyone in Jersey City actually get these HD channels?

217 History HD
230 Animal Planet HD

I ask as on my HD DVR they show "Available Soon" I called Comcast service (omg...) they said a tech would need to come out, tech arrived this past weekend only to say the channels were not being broadcast yet in JC check back in a few weeks?

Cheers

Brian

I don't have a converter box from Comcast but I am picking up some new shows on NJN in digital or high definition. These new shows of Jacques Pepin and Victory Garden fills the whole screen. All other shows on all the channels only fill part of the screen of my HD TV.

Thanks. I looked around but couldn't find anything explaining that. You think they could have mentioned this was going to happen instead of just cutting them off in the middle of a show I was watching!

Ugh. If I have to buy a converter box just to get PBS back, I think I'm also buying an antenna and cancelling my cable entirely.

I have comcast standard cable (non-digital) and NJN and WLIW both went out at the same time a couple days ago and have not returned. The rest of my channels are fine. Anyone else having the same problem?

Also: why is the $29.99/mo for 12 mo digital cable deal available everywhere comcast serves EXCEPT jersey city?

I just moved from Manhattan to JC (Paulus Hook) this weekend. We had Comcast set up the TV and internet, and while at first the HD channels didn't look very sharp compared to what we had with Time Warner, they look great now and the internet is very fast - WAY faster than our old TW connection. Plus, the DVR box works much better.

Based on all the complaints here I was expecting the worst, but I'm very pleasantly surprised! What great timing to add the new HD channels.

I also spoke to a rep at Comcast last week, and she mentioned that there should be some more HD stations getting launched between now and June 15th. Hopefully we can get FoxNews, CNBC, ESPN news and Encore in HD soon

I'm not at home so i don't know the channel numbers, but off the top of my head, some of the new HD channels are Animal Planet HD, Food Network HD, Discovery HD (did i have that already?), HGTV HD, USA HD, A&E HD (i think).

All these channels are in the low to mid 200s like the previous HD channels.

I also got a comast mailer recently saying they were moving channels around and i think it said it would be active on the 14th. (I don't remember exactly, and now its in the garbage).

Some of the new channels were not coming in too great for me. Also, now my internet is sporadically going down.
