The reason I ask...

In a local radio commercial today (Chicago), it was no longer "Tripple Play"... AT&T was going after the Double Play... Internet and Phone, no TV...

And the commercial was a pretty funny attack on Comcast, since the 1 year periods are comming up on the tripple play...

It was just odd that the video portion was dropped out of it...

I haven't heard anything one way or another. Maybe they're cutting back on advertising to get ready to do U-verse in the Chicago area and don't want to get possible customers locked into something with E*.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Surely, you must have meant "Dubble" Play, Earl. :D

I got a flyer in the Mail yesterday and it had Directv in the package....phone, internet, mobile phone and Directv. All from AT&T.

I threw it in the trash. :lol:

I'd think that if they were going to pick a company, it would be Dish. They have already invested in the "Home Zone" concept so it would seem that is the direction they would head.

LOL!

I sure don't want their cell service. Been there done that. I hear a similar ad in Ohio, and wasn't sure what to make of it.
