Comcast testing pay-per-package, still afraid of a-la-carte

Charleston, South Carolina might be famous for the eponymous knee / hand dance, but this week sees it become the second location in the US to get Comcast’s MyTV Choice. Rather than buying all the channels, or paying á la carte for just the ones you watch, you pick a platform and then bolt on a package of channels, grouped by theme — you get “Entertainment & Lifestyle,” “Movies,” “Kids” or “News & Info.” These smaller, cheaper bundles are in response to being forced to carry channels owned by the same group, if you’re paying for MTV, you’re also paying for TV Land, for example. Still, those in the city (when not dancing their knee joints away) should be interested to know that the Get Started platform costs $25, Get Started Plus $45 and each additional package is $10.

[Thanks, Saye]
