If you are not bundling for internet and phone, will it actually save you money?





No, we tried to drop our phone, and then your internet goes up, so either way you are screwed.



We dropped our phone and kept the cable but it will be going down. Close to $40/month.

Can I ask how much everyone is paying for streaming, phone and internet as I wonder how much of a savings it really is.



No landline phone.

Internet, once contract up this month, will be I believe around $70ish/month.

We spend well over a hundred on streaming services, we have a mix of TV apps, movie apps and music apps. We pay for Netflix, HBO, Hulu, Pandora, Spotify, Disney, Discovery Channel, Hallmark, Paramount, etc.

The nice thing about streaming is that it can be as little or as much as you want it to be, depends on your personal interests and budget. Many give free trials so you can play around until you decide what you like.

Even if it's a break even, having on demand content is SO much nicer than broadcast television.



Thanks.
We just dropped our phone and with the TV and Internet it will go down from $193 to $155.
We have Netflix, don't pay as my cousin gave me her other password and in the past my neighbor gave me hers as they didn't use them and it was going to waste not for anyone else to use. I know we have Disney and Paramount and think we pay $10/month for them.

You're welcome.

My fav app is Discovery Plus. It offers so much, you get Food Network, Cooking Channel, HGTV, DIY, Magnolia Network, History Channel, Travel Channel and a bunch of others. It's only like $7/month with no commercials. It's awesome.

Everything that's on TV along with most everything they have ever broadcasted in the past. Definitely one of the best apps.

They occasionally will have shows that are only available streaming.

Ahh ok. While I like to watch TV, I have watched less lately, mostly because I am just too busy with work and most shows are over that I watch. My kids stream shows on their phones but I am not the type to binge many shows.

If you're in Brookhaven, Altice doesn't make it cost effective not to bundle.
It's such a scam and I don't know how Altice is able to have a monopoly on the wires or whatever they have that doesn't allow for competition.
