Ain’t Going to Be Comcast’s Bitch


It’s been less than a year since I have gotten rid of my cable television service. At first I felt great. Cutting the cord felt damn near liberating. No longer was I paying $240 a month for wasted channels, summer hiatuses and informercials. Everyday there was something new on Netflix, and Hulu+ to watch and feel like I wasn’t missing anything from cable television. I know I’m not signing back up for TV services, the prices are too astronomical, so why am I looking at cable packages from Comcast?

I think the evil maniacal villain that is Comcast has won, and well on its way to conquering the world. It’s becoming increasing more difficult to find content and shows that are streamed online. A lot of the networks and channels that provide online streaming require an authentication from your television provider.

What kind of bullshit is that? This all started when the content providers became the content owners (i.e. Comcast buying NBC/Universal). And now there’s is talk about streaming services like Hulu require TV provider authentication… So what is a cord cutter like me suppose to do? Buckle down, sign back up for Comcast and prepare to be ass-raped in the wallet or give the middle finger to “the Man” and torrent all my shows? I guess only time will tell.
