I didn’t want to write about this sooner because… well, I didn’t want Comcast to know what was on my new DVR/cable box. Remember the card from Monopoly: “Bank Error In Your Favor.” After we got our new HDTV DVR from Comcast it got ALL the premium movie channels.
“Wow, this is cool,” I thought.
Jose Candelario who I work with said he’d heard from friends this was typical and they’d disappear over the weekend. They did, just after midnight Sunday.
A few brief observations from my moment of free-pay-TV:
I enjoyed seeing Bill Maher. Pre-HBO we ran Politically Incorrect on the TV station until Bill became too politically incorrect.
Helaine and Stef have tried to get me hooked on Entourage. Now I am. I’ll probably continue to watch it via DVD.
I like Bruce Willis action movies.
Is it possible to find nubile young actresses willing to take their clothes off who can act? If so, Cinemax has not yet found them. These are a lot more explicit than I remember.
There are a lot of movies being played I’ve never heard of. Is there that much direct-to-cable?
Right now, for me, there’s not enough to make me want to subscribe. I already have enough channels with nothing worth watching.
