    I got HD today! :) :)

    So I gave in and got Mediacom because it is cheaper (only a temporary thing). For < $40 I am getting their family cable package with Starz and Encore, DVR service, and a decent amount of HD channels including ESPN and ESPN 2. Holy Cow I can't wait to get home from work! they might as well send me home now, I am going to be worthless the rest of the day.

    Just wait until your promotional period expires and your monthly bill doubles. ;-)


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    The thing about that is after the 6 months is over I plan to get Direct TV anyways, I just couldn't afford it yet.

    When my promo period ends, I complain enough and tell them I am going to switch. So far, they have always given me some kind of deal to keep me. Must be my charming personality

    Re: I got HD today! :) :)

    I got DirecTV HD a week and a half ago. The only upsetting thing is Quad City locals aren't in HD. Other than that I have zero complaints and if it's within my control at all I'm not going back to Mediacom (except for the internet).

    If you have Mediacom with the cable hooked up directly to your TV, just go to your setup and hit "add digital channels". You will get at least Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS, IPTV, and TV8's weather channel for free!! You will find yourself watching shows you don't even care about but they're in HD!!!!

    I upgraded to a HD box last week with mediacom, and love it, But I don't pay for the 4 extra HD channels for $9.95 so I don't get mojo.

    By upgrading just the box what extra did that get you? How much did it cost?
