For those without cable

A friend who had cut the cord some time ago called tonight, excited about a new freebie from crappy Comcast / Xfinity.

Apparently, internet customers now qualify for a "Flex Box," completely free of charge. (I saw the contract and the box is listed at $0.00 for one year.)

This box connects to tv with HDMI cable, which is included. It also comes wih a remote.

This box provides access to all of Comcast's On Demand shows and free local channels.

The way I understand it, Xfinity customers must call to renegotiate a 12-month contract annually. This is how my friend learned about this freebie.

I hope this is helpful to those without tv service who would like to watch.

2. Just be careful it doesn't make you go past your data limit.

I assume it is streaming and will probably count against your data limit.

I love getting my locals over the air. I get subchannels that Comcrap won’t carry, also out of market channels.

6. Or a 5g vaccine?

Can't keep up with the crazies. Lol

Guessing something similar to windows 10 personal data theft for profit. I have strongly urged friend to pull HDMI cable & ethernet when not watching shows. Fuck comcrap!
