Re: Basic service sub required to recv other levels?

I apologize! Charter no longer includes box charges in the new packages, as I have been receiving flyers. Time Warner Cable changed packages a few years ago. When customers swapped the boxes, the promo rates *fell off* and we had to submit special billing forms for rate adjustments. Packages were built without equipment, then box swaps, or use of cable cards, made the billing much easier.

Here is fine print for Comcast double play:
