Advertisements Hello! My wife and I have had TWC cable TV and Internet for 15-ish years, but didn't get into TiVo's until 2010. We currently have a 4-tuner and a 6-tuner Roamio and one TiVo Mini. We have gone through the changes in TWCs technologies, e.g., SDV rollout requiring Tuning Adaptors and have upgraded our TWC internet from single digit speeds to our current TWC "Extreme" offer - 30/5Mb. For TV, we subscribe to a promotional bundle offer that includes "Starter TV, Standard TV and Variety Pass" and a second promo for Showtime. All together, the cost of TV and Internet, including all fees and charges is ~$162 per month. We have been told by a TWC/Spectrum customer service rep that our promotional deal will end sometime in 2019, and the TWC prices will go up (or possibly we'll be forced to transition to a Spectrum TV and Internet plan at that time). We were advised that if we switched to Spectrum now, and selected their "Silver" TV plan, we would get all the channels we get now and additional ones, plus the premium Showtime, Cinemax and HBO channels. For the internet, we would get Spectrum's standard 100/10Mb service. There would no longer be any "promo prices" and the total charge would actually be a few dollars less than we're currently paying. We do have a few concerns, since we learned long ago that you can't always trust what cable company reps tell you. We downloaded the Spectrum TV Residential Services and Rates document for our area and under the section labeled "Miscellaneous Charges (Per Month)" it shows a "Broadcast TV Service Charge" of $8.85 (which "applies to Basic Service and all additional TV services"). We already have a charge like that on TWC so not a show stopper. But the next item in this section shows "Whole House Wire Maintenance" at $4.99. Does this mean we would have to pay Spectrum $4.99 per month for wire inside our house that we own and maintain ourselves? I worked in telephony for 42 years and inside wire was deregulated (in 1981!) and customer-owned. Are current Spectrum customers seeing this $4.99 charge on their bills every month? I understand that Spectrum provides an internet cable modem at no charge, but can I continue to use my own 100Mb-capable DOCSIS-3 cable modem? I don't need or want Spectrum to provide a WiFi option with their cable modem, which would add an additional $5/month to the internet cost. Aside from these questions, we're curious if fellow TiVo enthusiasts here have made the switch from legacy TWC to Spectrum and have encountered unexpected issues with the conversion. For example, have there been problems with channel numbering or the channel guides? I assume we would have to reselect our channel choices and likely have to recreate our list of OnePass selections. What other tasks would be required after we decide to give Spectrum the authorization to migrate us from our TWC service to the Spectrum service? We thought we might simply wait to switch until next year when our promos expire. On the other hand, if we can get more (more internet speed, more channels including HBO and Cinemax) for roughly the same price, then what does waiting buy us? Oh, and at the time of switchover, would we be charged a $49.99 one time charge to "Move Transfer of Spectrum Service(s)"? Looking forward to comments from the group regarding the Pros and Cons! Thanks in advance for your input!
