What plan do you guys have and how much does it cost you?

We have Time Warner with cable modem. HDTV with HBO. We were paying $125-130 per month (rent a movie or two). Added Showtime and they cut the fee down to $85 per month when we threatened to switch to satellite.

I posted this up on the football side during a cable discussion:

I got an internet/cable package by going with AT&T's Fiber though. $74 per month, 200 crystal clear channels, Showtime, TMC, Encore, Starz, etc, Free Video on Demand, pay video on demand, and internet that goes faster than I need (I've got good, solid computers but every computer has a top speed and this internet is blazing fast). Also the internet connection can be either wireless or wired and is totally secure and locked down. Oh, 1 year deal and a guarantee on the second year at the same price with the exception of the movie channels. They are like $12 extra per month at the end of one year and they told me about it before I ever signed up.

Also, they totally re-wired the entire apartment, set up a box in the closet, set up the main box that has a main control for all 3 receivers and the internet, the 3 receivers themselves, 3 universal remotes that control everything (TV, VCR, DVD, Cable Box, etc), 1 receiver is also a DVR with 130 hours of record time on it, HD cables for one television, any and all wires and connectors, and it didn't cost me one red cent. Totally and completely free install.


Should have tacked on there that I get something like 30 HD channels as well.

There are bigger and better packages and things they offer, but this works well for me and is really more television than I have time or desire to watch.

It's AT&T U-Verse. ;-D

Phone $30 (AT&T)
Internet $50 (Road Runner Turbo)
Directv $50-60

Competition in my neighborhood is very limited. I think there is a mini-monopoly going on here.

I think my apartment pays about 110-120 for Cable internet/TV/HBO. Not bad considering it is five of us... IDK what I will do if I get apartment on my own in the future... I'll need internet, but not sure if cable will be worth it.

Charter phone, internet and digital cable - $127 a month.
I'm really starting to dislike Charter. 3 years ago the same package with HBO/Starz was $100. Then they increased it to $130 and then $160. After that I dropped the movie channels and we're back to $127.

I guess if we had a land line, it would jack up the cost by 25-30 bucks.
