I tried satellite but the installer wanted me to cut down 60 ft tall trees. Whenever I call, they always will run through various packages they have running. Xfinity is angling for their own share of the over-the-top streaming market, and their X1 platform  is the latest incarnation of that quest.
I asked the specialist I spoke to today about this, and insinuated in my conversation that there was, perhaps, an enterprise level policy change. Comcast will only negotiate so far. Limited to Blast!
Uugh-had to vent here so I can move on. Xfinity phone deals let you stay connected at home or on the go with your smartphone or tablet. I hope I am wrong, but I suspect that Comcast will continue buying competitors until it truly owns the entire market.
