    Nothing like reprising a thread from 2006!

    I switched from Dish to Mediacom cable about a year ago. First opted for their Tivo equipment and then changed to retail Tivo since Mediacom’s didn’t support many streaming services.

    Even using today’s new/returning customer offers, I’m saving quite a bit.
    Dish Top 250, all premiums, Hopper 3 with 2 Joeys would run approximately $169/month. Add the $80/month I pay for internet (100/10 w/1Gb data cap) and the grand total is around $249.

    Mediacom with my Tivo and 2 Minis is about $190 to Mediacom, $10/month for Tivo service for a grand total of around $200. That includes almost all their channels, including the premiums, missing only a couple of al a carte offerings. Note I’m in the 2nd year at that $200, prior to that it was $180/month for the 1st year.

    HDPQ is as good as either Dish or Direct provides and SDPQ is heads and shoulder better.

    I wish Google would run their fiber system out to where we live but doubt that will happen. Son has it at his house and it's not perfect it's better then Spectrums offerings. Got to pass on Spectrum due to their continued use of STB's that came out over 10 years ago, no WHDVR, no 4K. Yea I could get a Tivo but our system uses switched video so I would loose out on a bunch of stuff going that route.

    I just left DIRECTV after 22 years for Optimum Cable. I bought a TIVO Bolt and 4 minis. I went paying $305 for phone tv and internet to paying $111 for the three.

    from D* to optimum/altice north omg sorry . I hear horror stories about optimum.
    i guess the good think is you use Tivo and not optimum equipment .

    i recommend looking into fios tv much better PQ.

    I'll take fiber any day ..

    U couldn't ever offer me cable TV if it was free I refuse . I'll take OTT over cable TV.

    No one should have to suffer with POS cable

    But that's just my opinion
