Re: Comcast Blast Extra (ended a 6 mth promo) still good or bad?

Thanks to all who responded. Well, I took the advice and looked for the promos offered at the malls- walmart etc.

There is a current promo:

Blast Plus Xfinity Internet + TV = $39.99 (6 mths)
Need to add $10 for HD box.
Also, I cannot tell the diff betw Blast Plus vs Blast Extra. Does anyone know the speed diff?

Is this a good deal or should I wait a while? Thx.

I believe both Blast Extra and Blast Plus provide the same Blast! HSI tier speed.

The difference is in the TV part - "Extra" just provides the Digital Basic tier of channels, while "Plus" also adds the "Digital Economy" cable channels.

Many promos only apply to new customers so you may still have to negotiate with Comcast's retention department to get it.

Ok, I cancelled my existing service and signed up for the new promo (under my partner's name). I tried going via Retentions but they simply cannot match the new customer deals.

Oh well, just can't beat $39.99 for 6 mths (Blast Plus). Sales rep claims he added me HBO free for 3 mths (still not sure what this means... I can only access HBO OnDemand, just not the HBO channel numbers).

I also got 12 mths free HD DVR rental -- Xfinity Motorola RNG200N unit. Is this box any good?
