Yesterday I went online at Spectrum to explore their various service packages (Select, Silver, and Gold), and determined that the Gold pkg with 2 DVRs and 2 cable boxes, internet, and phone would cost $166/month vs the $210 that I'm paying now for less content. The fine print also stated this price would be set for 12 months. So, I called Spectrum to explore the details further. The sales rep was courteous and knowledgeable and put together the same exact Gold service pkg and equipment I had done earlier online. However, the price she offered me was $250/month vs $166. Turns out that the prices I found online were only eligible for a new Spectrum customer, which is defined as not having subscribed to Spectrum/BHN for the past 30 days or more. This also meant that after 12 months my monthly cost would jump from $166 to $250. The only positive news from this experience was that the sales rep researched my current Cisco DVRs (model 8642HDC), and confirmed that I could keep using them on Spectrum. Their Gold pkg looked really good at $166/mo, but at $250/mo it's fool's gold.
