connections, and the best digital television services on the market today. They have

succeeded in being a step ahead of others with millions of people switching back to

digital cable delivery for all their home technology needs. There is very little

difference, if any, in the charges for television, internet, and telephone services

delivered via cable vs. satellite, but there is a big difference in the quality of

services. Comcast provides exceptional customer service in addition to the quickest

internet connection rates, the greatest number of television channels, and clarity of

telephonic communications - all at one great low monthly price. Service bundling is the

money-saver because Comcast can work with other companies to provide an excellent

monthly rate for their customers. The quality and delivery of television programming has

improved drastically with digital delivery. Imagery is excellent with accompanying

CD-quality sound, and Comcast offers more than 275 channels of popular programming in

incremental packages. Each package includes all local channels, news, sports, movies,

children's entertainment, music, and more. There is something to interest each member of

the family plus the availability of HD programming and On-Demand (similar to

Pay-Per-View). On-Demand has the distinct feature of the viewer being able to stop the

program and resume or rewind without losing a second of the show. The On-Screen Program

guide is a great help in perusing channels for program choices, and the Parental Control

Guide enables one to have complete control over what and when a program is viewed in the

home. Simply block unwanted programming using ratings, titles, content, times, or dates.

connections. It provides complete website accessibility plus all the capabilities to

download music, movies, data files, photos, and more. Comcast offers PC protection from
