David,

That trend is definitely going to continue too.

I know someone who knows someone that works for another cable co and apparently cable is not doing well and it's no surprise.

Mine too. That's what it says when you cannot access a channel.

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.

YouTube TV should be coming to the Orlando area soon. $35/month for a good set of channels plus DVR capabilities.

Nayan: Definitely insane.

It's something I might consider when they add some more channels to their lineup.

lots of these online tv providers have a awesome feature called a cloud DVR. I would love to see spectrum add that feature so I can watch my recordings anywhere and on any device.

Much better than the Spectrum DVRS too.

They are going to add anything as they just hope people keep paying for a watered down service.

The Spectrum sales rep I dealt with last week mentioned two items of interest:
- Spectrum plans to offer promotional pricing to BHN legacy customers in a couple of months - no other details about this were expressed; and,
- Spectrum will soon offer new technology features for their TV services, such as World Box (cloud-based DVR) and a new HD-DVR with a 1TB storage drive.
Sounds interesting.
