New Comcast Triple-Play Subs to Get "Wii" Bonus
On Monday, hot on the heels of the announcement that Comcast will soon receive a slap on the wrist --- and hopefully, an order to stop throttling P2P --- Comcast announced that new subscribers to their Comcast Triple Play package will receive a complimentary Nintendo Wii system.
Triple Play is what it sounds: three services: high-speed Internet, digital cable, and digital voice. Currently in my area this upgrade would run us $69 / month. One other lowlight: you are signing up for a two-year contract if you get this.
Of course, the fact that we already have a Wii and love our DirecTV means that we will naturally pass on this deal. However, we know a few who are desperate enough, and who were considering Comcast anyway, who might just consider it.
