    With all Comcast’s free offerings, customers/public still don’t have free and/or lower costs for their jbfavorite On-Demand movies ($3.99-$5.99) nor At-the-Theater movies ($19.99).

    People are having a hard eating, how can they afford those kinds of prices for entertainment while in isolation.

    Where’s your “Empathy” Comcast!

    Comcast is only offering free movies they have hand picked, without allowing the customers/public select what movies they want to view.

    Comcast would be top provider if they would permit customers/public choice of the free movies they desire.
