Last January I cancelled my ridiculously expensive Uverse package (it never live up to the advertised speeds anyway.) I called Comcast intending to only get internet and completely cut the cord. They're so desperate to keep subscribers that they gave me basic cable, plus free HBO for 2 years! I couldn't pass it up. For ~$50/month (after taxes) I have 24Mbps internet, local channels and HBO. Finally started watching Game of Thrones!
