I received a mailer today advertising something called, "Spectrum TV Stream", for $12.99/mo. It supposedly includes the major broadcast networks PLUS HBO or Showtime. And if you subscribe now, they give you a free Rouk 3.
Sounds great, huh? Of course, when you visit the link promising more information and input your account number, there is no mention of it at all. The only options are to add TV service (I'm currently only subscribed to internet), starting at $39.99/mo.
I'm going to assume the offer is only for new customers and current subscribers of their TV service. There is absolutely no clarification in the flyer. It mentions " Offer valid to "qualified" (whatever that means) residential customers who have no outstanding obligation to Charter. That sounds to me like it's open to customers who are not behind in their payments, which I am not.
Based on my observations of cable company practices over the years, my guess is the offer is open only to customers who ALREADY subscribe to their TV service as an add on service. It doesn't even say if shows are available on demand or only live.
For a second I thought maybe they had become desperate enough to actually offer a service that could compete with Hulu or Netflix. I guess that's still several years away.
Edit: I may be wrong. See next post.
