TODAY’S COMIC: “Comcast”

I don’t know if the Comcast menu is the same on all machines, but I’ve got a serious gripe about the one on mine.

I recently dropped DirecTV in favor of streaming Netflix, HuIu, and Amazon. We didn’t really miss satellite TV.  We did miss “Game Of Thrones”, though.

I already had cable internet through Comcast and they offered a streaming service for only $10 more than I was already paying for broadband.  It was a no-brainer. I signed up.

The set top box arrived on my doorstep and we could finally watch “Game of Thrones” again!

Problem is… the menu is confusing as hell. They don’t even have a way to just go back a page. You have to SOMEHOW – not really clear to me what the rules are – somehow start at the beginning.  Hitting the Xfinity button again does not take you to the top Xfinity menu like it did the first time you pressed it.  So I keep pressing buttons on the remote until I end up back at the beginning, then navigate back to where I want to be.  All I want is the ability to go back one screen.  If my description is confusing to you…THAT’S MY POINT!

I’m open to the idea that I’m just an idiot and I’m having a hard time learning a new menu system, but I’ve been at this for over a month now and I still don’t understand it. It’s ugly, messy, and confusing.

Who the hell programmed this crap?

Anyway… enough negativity. Time for giving you some goodies!…


This weekend I uploaded 5 new comics to Patreon that my $1+ patrons can see before anyone else! I also uploaded the pencil art for those same strips that only my $2+ patrons have access to.  If you’d like to join Club Skitter and recieve these bonus materials and more, check out Patreon today!
