Cablevision Complaint - Call Cablevision to get $29.99 Family Basic with out triple play

Review by car869z on 2009-05-17
HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK -- I called cablevision's disconnect line and threatened to leave. They said they would reduce my $52 dollar rate to $29.99 with out having to do triple play. I will still have to pay for 3 additional boxes. Just wanted to let everyone know this. Call and get your rate reduced.

We are instead doing Verizon's triple play(includes DirecTV). DirecTV gives $21 off per month for a year, an extra $6 off from Verizon for DirecTV(deal continues on after a year) another $100 off because we got referral from my in-laws, and also a $150 gift card from Verizon. You still have to sign on for a 2 year contract. The package I am getting, has over 200 channels, a free DVR with DVR service and I am also paying for three receiver boxes. If you spread all these savings over a 24 month contract, the price per month comes out to $51.99 with all taxes and fees.

If I stay with cablevision and get their $29.99 deal and add on the cost of the cable boxes, and another $5 fee, I will be paying over $58 a month. Not worth it!!!!!!!! I pay less and get more with DirecTV.

Watch out with DirecTV also, everytime you call to add, delete or change something they will extend your contract another two years. And if you want to leave DirecTV you will pay close to $500 in termination fee's. They will also claim you never returned their boxes and charge you for those too.

Super is right on the money. I am sorry to say it but you may end up being very disappointed that you went to DirecTv. I hope that your case is different than those that have posted here. From personal experience DirecTv was a nightmare both technical services and in customer service. I hope you have better luck.
