No more BBC America . . .
It's official, I've phoned the cable/internet company back today, as I was instructed to do a few weeks ago, in order to drop down in program service packages, as our current one would be escalating to $75/month. We simply don't watch enough TV to justify that. Of course, I had to get through customer rep # 1 before being transferred to the correct person. And again, I was asked to do a 3 way bundle, which again I declined. So, my cable/internet bill is dropping by $39.48 (with tax?) and since I changed it TODAY, even tho it's one day before my next billing cycle, it's still within a billing cycle, I will get a credit of $40.75 on my next bill. Ok, thanks.
The only negative is that in comparing the basic to economy (the one I selected) to value etc pkgs, we have to lose BBC America-one of the few channels that we do enjoy. : ( Simply not worth the extra $25/mo it would cost me to keep it. We've dropped down 2 levels in pkgs, the next drop is Basic.
Meanwhile, we'll sign up for Netflix and get the free month trial. If we like it, it certainly would be a nice addition.
