A Comcast guy came to the door yesterday.Cable Guy: "4565 Carroll - you don't have cable."
Me: "Nope. We don't watch TV."
CG: "You don't?"
Me: "No."
CG: "Do you have a TV?"
Me: "Yes, but we only use it to watch movies."
CG: "Oh. So you don't watch any TV at all?"
Me: "Only the five minutes before and after we put in our movies."
CG: "Oh. You don't even watch the networks?"
Me: "No."
CG: "Well, we have this special deal for people who don't watch very much TV. $5/month till the end of December."
Me: "We don't want to pay for something we won't use."
CG: "Oh. Ok."
And then we talked a little about phone service that I didn't want, either. He was rather astounded I think.

Oh, I get it. They have plans for everyone! Lots of channels, premium channels, basic channels...and a very special deal for those who won't use their service at all: only $5/month! A little like the government paying farmers not to grow crops, except that in this case they would CHARGE the farmers not to grow them.

Another Comcast guy came today, but he had a Comcast shirt on, so I immediately said, "We don't watch TV." He tried to sell us internet, too, but I managed to get rid of him pretty quickly.

I was curious to see when I had posted this, so now you know that they come every 6 months or so to offer $5/month plans.

Comcast doesn't allow servers on their network, so that will make him go away quick enough.
