    My Silver rates went up and my Cinemax channels are no longer, thank you and goodbye to Spectrum TV.
    I will keep Spectrum High Speed Internet but i will turn the STB in.
    I will try both Directv NOW and PS Vue, then decide which most appeals to me. The great thing is i can subscribe to NOW for a few months, then subscribe to VUE for a few months.
    I have a 4K TV and PC connected and watch many programs online anyways.
    Most Cable and Sat providers give you many options as far as TV and Internet........but Spectrum offers you just 3, Select, Silver, and Gold and the only options for Internet are 100 Mbts and higher, nothing with 60 Mbts anymore.....which is ironic because i pay $60 a month for Internet.

    I used to have regular Directv HD a few years ago but it just go too expensive.
    I have had Time Warner/Spectrum TV/Internet since then and what i used to love about it is the Silver TV package had Premiums (HBO, Cin, Show) and many other channels i watch including Dodgers/Lakers. I do get over 120 Mbts online so thats why i'm keeping that.
    What i will probably do is get PS Vue Ultra to cover Game Of Thrones and True Detective until the season ends and then switch over to NOW Gotta Have it for Showtime/Starz.
    Yes, they are both the top tier package, but it's still a little cheaper than Spec., about $20 or $30.

    Unfortunately it isn't just Silver. As of 2/15 they're removing Cinemax, Epic, Stars and Encore from the "GOLD" package as well :-( IMO that kills the whole value. I had gold up until a couple of months ago and was considering going back. At $180 for TV, internet, etc. it was a good value to have every movie channel they offered as part of the package. Now they're all gone, AND they raised the price! No chance I will be back to Gold now.

    it was a great value when you had the new customer goodies and freebies and deals. but if there jacking up the rates then it's time to leave. i can't compute 107.00 a month just for the select package with a dvr and one box. when i can get 300 channels for the same cost with a whole home setup with 21st century hardware!!!
    and there gonna screw there customers again because there gonna charge an extra 4.99 a month for the cloud DVR service on top of the DVR fee and box rentals. when the boxes will be cheaper for spectrum to manufacture because there's no HDD in them. and the tuners on the cloud DVR will be limited as well to 4 or 6!!!

    the one thing that blew me away with spectrum is how stone age everything is. crap DVR boxes no whole home setup crap guide on the 6 tuner box along with the arris HD box. and when the tech brought in a dual tuner DVR that was a complete mind fuck!!! as in todays world with guides and channel line up's getting bigger those are not accepted and need to be disposed of.

    I'm confused, so that means that the top of the line "Gold" package, Spectrum will no longer carry those channels?.....or are they charging for these channels as "add ons"?
    I will be going to the Spectrum office soon to return my STB and it will be interesting to hear their reasoning.....if there is any.
    I will still be a customer since i'm on their Internet plan, but TV wise i wish i had Infinity, like in Norcal........at least they have more packages to cater to various customers, whether it be on the bottom tier or at the top with 4K.

    That’s correct. Based on the notes on the last bill as of 2/15 those channels will all become premium tiers that you will have to add separately in addition to Gold if you keep it.
