New Comcast Triple-Play Subs to Get "Wii" Bonus

It certainly wouldn't be a deal-breaker (or maker) to us, but if you still can't get a Nintendo Wii (and annoyingly, it's still in short supply), and you're interested in signing your life away for two years to Comcast, this could be the deal for you.

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.
