Comcast, you’re on notice!

I've kept an allegiance to my cable provider because they bring me blazing fast internet service for a "relatively" affordable rate, but the television side of things leaves much to be desired. I pay a lot for a little and switching over to a digital dish would be a huge upgrade but I've refrained from doing so. That being said, the moment of truth is fast approaching – this August is the start of the Big Ten Network which could exclusively carry Penn State games and leave some of us in the dark. Currently the network is carried by DirectTV and AT&T but no Comcast. There is hope: the network is still in talks with 30 regional providers, including Time Warner and Comcast, to become part of basic cable packages.

So here's your chance Comcast, don't be stupid, add the Big Ten Network before football season. Don't make me go buy DirectTV because I will, I'm not joking around here. Consider this your first and only warning, I'm watching you.
