Adopt A Pet With Comcast On Demand?

Apparently, in some areas of the US you can view short videos of local pets who are in need of homes via Comcast on Demand.

We don’t have Comcast here in Brooklyn, so we were not aware this existed, but now that know about it we think it’s really nice. Yes, you heard us. Nice. Comcast users who have this feature can go to the local section of the “On Demand” menu and check out some local pets who are looking for good homes. We’re glad Time Warner doesn’t offer this feature, or we’d be adopting 241,248,423 pets a minute whenever we felt sad.—MEGHANN MARCO

    Unfortunately, they charge $8.95 a month for the “pet rental fee.”

    COD actually has a lot of nifty features. There’s the pet adoption viewing, video personals (good for some LAUGHS), auto sale video classifieds, great programming for children/toddlers, and it’s all free.

    I know, I sound like a Comcast shill, their On-Demand is actually a great service when it works properly. They have episodes of popular broadcast shows (mostly CBS though) for free, and the selection of free movies isn’t ENTIRELY awful. Partially awful, maybe even mostly awful, but not entirely.

    Of course, even though the pet plan says it’s unlimited, if you spend too much time with the pet Comcast will come and take it away for overuse. They will then require you to upgrade to the Farm plan, after a 1 year banishment of course.

    Best thing about getting a pet from Comcast — whether you like it or not, your pet is bound to disappear from time to time. All you have to do is call your local CSR to get that outage time credited to your account. It may not be more than a dollar or two, but it adds up over time…

    1. Get your service suspended for going over the undefined usage limit.
    2. Go to a friend’s house and adopt a puppy through on demand.
    3. Tell Comcast to reconnect you or the puppy “gets it.”
    4. Enjoy your new puppy and your Comcast service.

    You can look at pets up for adoption, vote for pet contests, order take-out food from local restaurants, order pizza on the Pizza Hut Channel, get a job and sing karaoke with Oceanic Time Warner.

    Sillyness aside, The Pets-On-Demand, has actually been a good thing here in utah. The humane society here has reported that adoptions have gone up 12% since they started doing it. While that may not be a huge number think of how many furry friends (not those furries you sick bastard…) now have decent home that wouldn’t with out Comcast POD (sue me apple, sue me).
