Canceling Comcast’s Xfinity TV service and streaming your content can sound scary at first, with a ton of options and decisions to make, but we hope this guide will help you find out that cord cutting is surprisingly easy. In fact, you may already have most, if not everything, you need. So today we are going to help you cancel Comcast’s Xfinity TV and show you how you can still legally watch your shows as you save money.
How to Cancel Comcast’s Xfinity TV Service
Comcast like most cable TV services make it hard to cancel but we are going to do our best to help you out. The first thing you need to do is decided if you want to cancel all of your Comcast services including internet and switch to something like DSL or if you just want to cancel your TV portion of your bill. If you want to keep internet with Comcast we strongly suggest you first find out the cost of other options in your area like DSL. That will help you when Comcast tries to sell you an overly expensive internet package.
Now that you are ready to cancel just call Comcast at 1-800-266-2278. Remember the people you will talk with are not there to help you cancel they are going to do everything they can to scare you into staying with Comcast so be ready to say NO over and over again when they try to convince you to stay.
