So looks like by the end of the year, Memphis will be fully switched over to Comcast for it's Cable options. It's taken several months for Time Warner and Comcast to complete their deal, which involved carving up the territories of an older cable company and restructuring other Memphis.

I'm not overly impressed with Comcast; it's what my Dad has in Dothan. I find it difficult to navigate, and several of the channels I like to watch aren't part of their packages- unless I want to pay for Premium Channels we won't watch. Also, silly as it sounds, I don't want to have to relearn channel numbers. Their cable internet and phone also seem to be higer than Time Warner, though not by much. On top of everything, if you have a Road Runner e-mail, you either loose it with the switch, or have to pay Time Warner's non-subscriber rate.

I'm annoyed. I really wish I known about this when we moved. Instead of getting the TW package deal on TV, Internet and Phone, I'd have just gone back to Direct TV. The weather issue aside, I liked it better than cable.

So while it's not something monumental, it's just one more annoyance to have to deal with. When the switch is complete, we'll just have to see how things go.

I've had Comcast for two years now, and I've not had any problems with them. maybe I'm just lucky.

OK, not completely true, I had one issue with them, which was resolved quickly and painlessly.

I imagine it really won't be too bad. I'm just in one of those "even the little things annoy me" moods.

Thanks, though.
