If you haven’t seen it yet, I’m sure you will.   Comcast has 25mb internet + HBO GO + Basic Cable TV for $39.99.   There is also an $8/month modem fee which brings the total price up to about $47 and I’m sure there are taxes and fees too.

But the bottom line is that it’s a great deal.  I currently pay $50/month for 12mb of internet on Uverse with no HBO and no basic cable so it’s a no-brainer for me.

I will now get access to the great shows on HBO, faster internet, and some basic cable for less than I’m paying now and I can’t complain because this is EXACTLY what I’ve been asking for: a-la-carte programming.

Sure it’s not 100% a-la-carte programming yet but over the next few years it will be and I’m ready to show that I’m eager to provide the demand if the supply exists.

What remains to be seen is how well the service will run since I had problems with Comcast many, many, years ago that I dumped them in favor of AT&T but quite honestly, AT&T has done nothing for me lately.

Good by AT&T, maybe someday you’ll have the wits to offer a-la-carte programming and internet.
