Re: [VOD] Preferred Collection

said by HELPmePLEASE :

So this large selection of "free" movies will be replaced with something that we will be given the pleasure of paying extra for.

That sounds about right.

I have Streampix now on my TV screen and also still see the Free Movies category. I think most customers would qualify to get streampix included (I don't pay any extra for it).

Most? You must have a higher-end Internet or TV package. I only have Preferred TV and Performance Internet (mid-level). I don't believe it's included in that. Many people may only have Digital Starter TV, or even basic.

From chewch99's post in this thread (»[VOD] Preferred Collection), you must have "HD Preferred Plus" service or better for it to be included without any extra cost.

You don't pay any "extra" for the Streampix in the way of a separate fee listed under Additional Xfinity TV Services on your bill, but your overall bill is higher than us lesser people that don't have your level of a triple-play bundle or higher.

That's like saying the HD Complete bundle has a free DVR; but does it really when your bill is at the very LEAST $206.99/month?
