Question about Comcast's Sports Entertainment package

11-29-2007, 01:20 PM
If I order that tonight, can I get it before tonight's GB at Dallas game, and can I get it for only a month. I'm guessing both are yes, but just want to make sure.

They turn it on right away. But if you cancel too soon they might charge you a fee to cancel.

That was my plan, you have to cold boot your box though for it to show up. At least thats what happened on my box. Might want to hold on for the Patriots-Giants game on NFL network at the end of the year though, especially if they go 16-0. Don't want to miss that.

Your box must have been slow to respond. I have changed services and did not have to do that. Hope you enjoy the football.

I just ordered it late this afternoon and I did not have to have my cable box on. I asked about any cancellation fee and was told there is no contract so I can eliminate this package anytime I want with no charge. The price was $ 4.99/mth for 3 months.
Only disappointment is that in my area of CT (New Haven), we do not have NFLHD as of yet. However I must admit the digital signal was actually not that bad. Still not happy no HD however.

Whenever you call Comcast to make any changes to your services (i.e. add services or drop them), a fee of $1.99 is charged to your account. So, to call and order the S&E tier, you'd have to pay for the day or so of the service (around $0.20, nothing much) and $1.99 twice to add it, then remove it.

I'm trying to follow the discussions on the NFL Network. I have that channel listed in my HD channel lineup, but don't have access to it. I thought that Comcast was using the NFL Network channel as part of an overall Sports and Entertainment package which was an extra $5/month. According to a post in this discussion, that individual channel can be "turned on" for a charge of $1.99? As I understand it, there were not that many games on that channel, so I'm trying to understand what the purpose would be of having that channel. What is on that channel in the off season or is it something that people just subscribe to for about three months?

The NFL network has alot of NFL films programs and such during the summer, plus they do the obligatory draft, combine, mini-camp, and training camp coverage. The sports tier includes NBA tv so the package itself is worth having all year if your into basketball as well.

Well, the package may be worth looking into, but now one other thing I am wondering is what will happen with the NCAA tournament playoffs. Is it likely that any of the games would be set aside on a special channel such as at what happened with the GreenBay/Dallas game being exclusively on the NFL network?
