Default Comcast "Limited service"

AS a TV owner who is still trying to sell a house up north before we move to Florida, I would like to get Comcast service but on a limited basis since we are not here very often. I understand the limited plan costs $11 per month plus taxes with an installation charge of $40.

Is anyone using this service and are you satisfied with it? HOw far in advance do you need to schedule installation?

Does the $40 installation charge cover just 1 inside cable jack or up to as many as 4 or 5

With taxes what is your bill...we are not considering high speed interent at this time??

Also by signing up now for limited service will I not receive any promotional specials when I finally move here?

How many of the 21 channels are worth looking at?

Default Get DirecTV

You can turn it on and off with no monthly charges at all. And you get better programming and more Hi Definition than with cable.

You will NOT get your bang for the buck from COMCAST and they will not be receptive to any complaints.
