Re: I'm not dumb, but I still don't understand
The only suites of premium channels we get the full slates of are Starz/Encore, and that's because they're included with the Digital Plus package (The only digital cable package ABB has).
For Cinemax, we only have Cinemax, MoreMax and ActionMax and it's an additional $16.95 per month from the HBO.
We only have Showtime, Showtime 2, Showtime Showcase, Showtime Extreme and Showtime Beyond, which is all Comcast Mid-Atlantic carries too.
Atlantic Broadband is merely Charter's leftovers that they deemed non-strategic in 2004. All of the territories in MD and Western PA were deemed non-strategic by AT&T when they acquired TCI, and dealt to a shell company that was purchased by Charter within 6 months. We did get D3 speeds last week available here, and those are competitive (20/2 for $54.99, 40/3 for $69.99).
But there's a reason ABB is for sale. And I didn't even mention all the cable channels we can't get, including one of our in-market regional sports networks, Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic.
