What do you think of tv,internet, phone packages
on Mar 10, 2009 (Read 346 times | Comments: 9)
Are these really economical? Are there hidden costs? What experiences have you all had before I choose something I will regret. I am confused and do not know how to compare. I have all separate right now.

I actually work for "the phone company" and honestly bundling your services can save you money as long as you are using all of the services anyway...Adding a land line to your expenses just so you can get the bundle rate for instance will not save you money, however some companies now offer to bundle with your wireless... also make sure that you are asking for what you want... If you want a bundle but do not want to have to sign a contract, ask for that... Also make sure that you ask for all possible stackable offers... We may have 2 or 3 offers that can be used concurrently, but that sales person may not offer them all up unless you ask... Also be sure to check all ordering avenues available to you before you order... You may get different offers by ordering online than you will by calling the 1800 number or visiting the store... Good Luck!

I have cable tv and internet and a regular landline, but longdistance is killing me. I am concerned abt the hidden fees and all that stuff. Is online better than on the phone? Is DSL better than a cabe package?

Having a bundle package will save you money, but the only problem I have experienced is that when your phone goes out, everything goes out. I had no tv, no internet and no landline. Thank GOD I have a cell phone.

I have all 3 cable, internet, & phone package and I love it. I use it often and I have calculated it out I am saving money which helps. My cable company provides discounts to its costumers and on Tuesdays you can get two tickets to the movie theater for free all for having all three of their services. My only complaint is that when your power is out your phone goes out as well so there is no calling if there is an emergency and no calling the company to see why the power went out. So I guess use a cell in this situation.

I got rid of the landline as we all have cell phones. I have Charter Cable and High Speed Internet, and I love it. I am saving so much money. I like the Directv better as it tells you at a click what time a show came on, when it goes off, what year it came out, etc, but I do not miss the price! I pay less and get 2 services by bundling.

I have internet,tv & phone w/one company. My long distance is free. It was a package deal when we signed up. So it's only good until the contract is over. But for now I like it. I checked all the ads in newspaper & in the mail. Compare the different Co. and asked questions..... Is the price that's quoted what you're going to be charged. Is there any hidden cost. Is there a contract and how long is it for. Will the price go up at any time after you sign a contract. We actually got a bill for more then we were suppose to pay , called the Co. up and said would adjust it..it was their mistake. Hope this helps.

I just have the internet and cable bundled together and even just those together saves us money. If you are going to have them anyways then it is definitely worthwhile to bundle them.

Right now we have landline, high-speed internet, and 3 cell phones with AT&T. I really want to add our cable on there too but I am also confused about the packages. They have this new thing called U-verse or another type of cable and I am not sure what to do. I tried to call and have they guy walk me threw it but when I told him I had cell too he said I had to do it online which I didnt want to do because I didnt want to sign up for something I didnt understand.ugh I hope you have better luck than me.

Who uses landlines anymore? If there is one that offers cell phone service, I don't know what it is. It's annoying that internet is so expensive on it's own and yet, to get a reduced price I have to pay for a landline I'll never use.
