    I have been using a Tivo Bolt Vox with a mini vox for almost a year with spectrum gold I left DTV after 8 years and do not miss them at all.
    Price increases drove me to move. I was paying $230 / Mo for spectrum phone and internet along with DTV. I now pay $148 / Month plus approx $10 / month for Tivo service . I have spectrum silver package (includes premiums). Pay back for TIVO upfront costs is less than 1 Year.
    I have no problems with Pictue quality. I do not have 4k tvs yet.

    Make sure you are getting what you need. In some locations the DVR is a 2 tuner one and Spectrum isn't offering whole home service. This is the former TWC area and I'm not sure for other areas. If this is what Spectrum is offering in your area and ok with you then ..As other writer has said - combine with a Tivo to get more tuners and whole home.

    How do you think Spectrum will distribute their original programming to their customers?

    I have Spectrum with a former TWC contract, meaning I don't have access to the current Spectrum pricing. My TWC service includes Standard Triple Play (Starter TV. Standard TV, Variety Pack, Ultimate 200 Internet, Home Phone National and Voicemail) plus HBO and 3 CableCards (TiVo Bolt 500, Roamio Plus with two TiVo Minis and TiVo HD). I'm quiet happy with my TiVo boxes. Just one problem with the Bolt -- with the tuning adapter attached, I can't get my local channels. With it disconnected from my Bolt, I get the locals plus the main HBO channel,CNN,MSNBC, HGTV and History Channel, which are the normally encrypted channels I watch. My monthly bill is in the $140 range.

    they offered me there 100 MBPS internets and unlimited nation wide phone ( wich is a joke :) and the gold package for 121.00 a month. sounds like a no brainer to me. but my acct is a problem acct with bad wiring and shit techs. and argumentative toddlers at there call center over freaking cable cards. i can't have one because i am not a grandfarthered in TWC customer LOL that's an FCC complaint right there and them telling me that i would still have to pay for there DVR service really since when i would be paying tivo for dvr service numb nuts

    I know most people don't have land line service but I have it so I have a phone number to give to vendors, etc. which is never answered and has no volume on the phone. The number of spam calls this saves me from is worth the price

    well hell i am only keeping this shit for one more week. the phone goes blank at times when trying to make out going calls the t.v. breaks up and pixelizes and macro blocks like a MF to the point where it just crashes down:mad: i am so pissed off right now. when you post on there so called forum asking for help they delete it:mad:. i will be taking advantage of there 30 money back deal the service sucks. as far as what i will do for the internets i had verizons 5G whole home broadband installed they had to send a tech out and install a box thingy on my house and put an antenna on the roof and point it;). they give you the apple t.v. 4k or the 4k chrome cast the modem and router 3 months of youtube t.v. the modem and router along with wifi extenders through out the house to make sure your getting service and the first three months are free!!!
