Recently Comcast underwent a digital migration that required all customers to secure a digital conversion box. Without the conversion box, consumers are no longer able to access non-basic cable channels, so we have been relegated to watching basic cable – NBC, ABC, CBC, Fox, and our local channels – or as princess would describe it – “We’ve been Comcasted!” I totally let this digital migration slip me by and paid absolutely no attention to the letters sent in the mail. It has now totally wiped out our cable on all but one tv (the one with the box) and I can only seem to remember to call Comcast in the morning as I’m getting ready, and then again at night as I walk in the door. Essentially, I can’t remember to call to request the migration boxes and this has been quite frustrating to the tv junkies in my house.
But unlike hubby and princess, I can watch documentaries and news all day everyday (except for Thursday nights when I’m glued to The Real Housewives), so being Comcasted has not affected me much. Case in point, I watched PBS last night and learned SO much. I viewed the documentary Food, Inc. and was surprised and disgusted and also simultaneously enlightened about where our food actually comes from. After watching the film, I want to make better choices about food – and this time, not just because I need to lose weight, but because I need to be healthy.
My point is that I never would have watched this film had our cable been working and I’m pretty thrilled to have been Comcasted – it has been a blessing in disguise.
BTW….do you know where your food comes from? You’ll never look at food the same way after watching this film. Check out the trailer HERE.
