Opening Arguments

Zee deal, she is made


Comcast Corporation and the Big Ten Network announced today that they have reached a long-term multimedia agreement for Comcast to carry Big Ten Network programming across television, broadband and video-on-demand in time for the 2008 college football season.

Under the terms of the agreement, Comcast will initially launch the Network as part of its expanded basic level of service to promote it to the majority of its customers residing in states with Big Ten universities (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, with the exception of the Philadelphia region which will launch on a broadly distributed digital level of service) starting August 15th.

I'm not sure yet, but I may have finally given up on IU basketball, so this is a little late for me.

What state is the University of Iowa in? Did the floods wash it downstream?

I heard that AT&T was selling their TV/Internet package in Muncie (with 200 channels) for $69 + change, and the COMCAST customers called up the "Big C" to ask them WHY they should stay with Comcast (at $99+ w/less than 100 channels) instead of switching to AT&T.
Comcast offered a comparable package to THOSE WHO CALLED at the SAME PRICE...imagine that.

It DOES pay to bitch a little....
(now about those credit card interest rates...)

I've tried that in Indy and all I get is either a 10.00 credit for 3 months or I get talking points about how inferior AT&T's DSL is to Comcrap.

Maybe I should move to Muncie?
