Description of service

This amount is just for cable tv service, as against a cable package which includes phone and internet service. This is basic cable, and does not include the premium channels which cost $10.00 a channel, cable box for each unit, which is around an extra $6.25 a month per tv set. This is the rate quoted to me by the customer service agent and does not include the federal and state taxes and other fees.

Review of Service

The service is so-so, the channels limited. I would rather have the best package for the cable tv, but since the household is small, it is not cost-efficient to pay $120 for just tv. The installation was a bit awkward, and I hated that they drilled holes in the apartment that I was just renting! Follow-up service is not so good, and if you are not careful, they can easily charge you for things you did not request. Reception was thankfully reliable. I don't remember having problems with my channels since it was installed last year. While I know that this is the regular rate for cable, it still seems like too much money to pay in my opinion.


There is only one cable television company in our area so I am stuck with them. However, I am hoping that the local telephone company will get into the game and offer a good package which includes cable tv.
