Default Comcast starts banner ads... a little off topic

Comcast has started Banner ads, on the onscreen guide here

totally annoying, cant change channels without clicking on them by accident...
guide is smaller, and you see less of what is on...

it sucks, and I have already called to complain but to no avail..

searched on google and I am not alone

killcomcastads.com

anyone else out there with them yet?
how do you guys feel about this?

I am not paying them to advertise on my TV...
I want it gone or the DTV banner will be the only banner I will see..

bill

I am calling corporate to complain tomorrow..

My neighbor’s Comcast bill was higher than my DirecTV bill so he decided to go with sat tv. When he called Comcast they asked why he was cancelling, he told them sat was cheaper. Comcast then offered to reduce his monthly bill to below the sat prices.

The point is, if you call and threaten to go with sat TV don’t be surprised if Comcast offers to reduce your monthly bill to keep you.

Comcast just needs some competition. There is none in CT. Cable is the last remaining monopoly. There is only one small part of the state where you have a choice. Direct TV and ATT dish are not available unless I cut down a major path in the back that would make my yard look hideous. They're not a lot cheaper and my neighbors say the reception suffers with the weather...

the ads suck though and I hope we dont get them here

I've also noticed the ad's. I haven't clicked on them by mistake but they sure are annoying.

I'll also be calling.

I have to agree they are annoying as all hell, like we aren't bombarded enough already
