So after 45 minutes on the phone with spectrum reps today after my monthly bill for cable, internet, and home phone went from $197 to $212 after the yearly promo expired, I found this out: all twc customers kept their twc package after spectrum bought it out. If you want to make changes, you have to go with spectrums packages. Their best package deal for me is $223! When I look up their pricing online for the same thing it’s 173. They said that is for new or returning customers and I can’t get that price. I explained that I’ve been looking into other options for cable and am going to do some of the free trials to see what works best, then asked for the price of just internet and phone with no cable. She quoted it at $90 a month. If I package that with the ps vue $50 service, I go from $212 to $140. It will take the expense of buying 2 Roku elite boxes, but target will have them for $50 after thanksgiving. Shoot, ps vue allows you to stream up to 5 devices at once and have 5 cloud dvr profiles, so I could split the $50 monthly cost with my son who now has his own house and spectrum will lose another cable customer.....I really hope ps vue works great on Roku!
I know streaming won’t be as convenient to watch as cable, but for a $850+ yearly savings I might be worth it. We already have Roku on 2 TVs and use the spectrum app and it isn’t that bad to use. We might lose a couple stations we sometimes watch but oh well. Losing the outdoors channel will hit me hard but I’ll have to find some other access to uncle ted and the gang.
