Dan Williams with Comcast shows you some ideas of how you can save money and get real value by getting the most from conveniences that are right at your finger-tips at home.
• While we often take it for granted, phone service provides a great way to stay in touch with family and friends through the holidays whether they live nearby or across the country. What you want is worry-free phone service so you don’t have to worry about stacking-up surprise long-distance and other fees.
• There are service options that can be tailored to your needs, whatever they may be – and help you stay within budget. For as little as $39.95 a month, Comcast offers unlimited in-state and nationwide long-distance calling, and 12 of the most popular calling features including voice mail. If you don’t need to call across the country, Comcast offers plans for as little as $24.95 per month with several calling features included.
• From email, to family blog sites, to video calls, more and more people are using the internet to stay in touch with family and friends and to shop online – or even make an online bid for that perfect gift. You can save time and money, and check items off of your holiday gift list without leaving your home.
• With the volume of Internet related options available, it’s important to choose an Internet service that’s fast and reliable. Comcast is the nation’s number one high-speed internet service for just that reason.
• Whether you are looking for a particular program or want to keep your family entertainment costs down, the TV service you choose can make a world of difference to your holiday experience.
• The average cost of taking a family of four to the movies and buying popcorn and drinks is a whopping $60.00. For just $4.99 in the comfort of your home you rent a movie from Comcast On Demand, pop your own popcorn, and grab a few soft drinks from the fridge. With Comcast On Demand you can choose from more than 4,000 program options at any time on any day – and you also have 1,000 HD choices.
• No matter how you get your TV service you need to be aware of the broadcast digital transition coming up on February 17th 2004, which means that anyone who gets their TV service by rabbit ears or antenna will need to either buy a digital box for their current TV, buy a digital TV, or subscribe to cable or satellite service. Comcast offers a dedicated website, www.comcast.com/dtv, which includes an interactive tool that can help you create a personalized action plan for the broadcast digital transition based on your specific needs.
• Comcast offers cable service for as little as $10 per month – or for free, if you have another Comcast service.
