If you are still thinking about dropping cable TV, then call Comcast and say you are disconnecting your service. They will give you an incentive to stay. Ask my parents and the dozens of others who call into comcast every 6 months. My parents haven't paid full price for Comcast service in over 5 years.

This seems to be market-specific. A lot of people I know who've tried it actually had Comcast call their bluffs.

Actually, its customer care specific. Comcast calls your bluff, make your disconnect date 2 weeks out because "your satellite dish will be installed then". Call back next day, get a new rep, try again.

The I'll quit and go elsewhere only works where Comcast knows the customer has viable cost effective alternatives like Verizon Fios. If your options are 1.5 mbps DSL & DirecTV, they are liable to call your bluff.
