Re: Cable TV service without a TV (and being charged taxes)

Saving money is good.

Government collecting taxes on services not used and no method to access is bad.

However, to update the original post, the pricing of the bundle is so much lower than standalone internet that even with paying taxes, the total price is much less.

At the comcast office, they advised that 1 standard definition box was free, so if I ever got a TV, I can just pick up a box to use. Also, I have access to Streampix, so even without a TV, I can watch old TV shows like Knight Rider, etc. on my computer.

Why is it bad? If you buy the service you should pay the taxes on the purchase. Government should not have to determine if you use the item/service you buy. What is next? Should the government refund sales tax on clothes you buy but never wear?
