Spectrum

Post by Frank Booth » Wed Jun 13, 2018 4:08 am

I was wondering if anyone here had Spectrum. My area is already serviced by Buckeye Cable but I got a post card in the mail today from Spectrum. Which I believe used to be Time Warner, guess they must offer service in my area as well.

I was looking at there website, with the CATV packages, it wasn't listed but do they offer just a basic 20-30 ch package? I currently have the lowest package with Buckeye which is The 30+, which is about 30$ a month.


Gordon went right up to 'em in broad daylight of course, cause he's the man, right? And he took all those drugs away. It was f****ing beautiful. Candy colored clown they call the Sand Man.

I have Spectrum, which I got from the Bright House days. I liked Bright House, as they typically had good, reliable service and good customer service. But I am going to be a cord cutter, leaving only internet service, due to the price of cable and internet jumping way up to $130. I'm unaware of any smaller TV packages.

I have Spectrum (which was inherited from Charter) at my cottage in Ogemaw County. Never had any problems during my vacations there during the past two summers. I am still disappointed in their decision to drop WFQX and to replace WNEM's Cozi subchannel with one of WEYI's must-carry subchannels from their West Branch lineup last year however. I have decided though a while back that I will no longer be heading to that cottage for personal reasons, so I can't check to see if they have gotten better since.


For three days in January 2017 (15th, 16th, 19th) and one night in September 2017 (22nd), I managed to receive KDKA Pittsburgh from 202 miles away indoors!

Charter basic. Honestly, lots of outages.
My basic is $44. They have cut ch9/WGN, Weather channel and a few others. I "think" I have 17 channels plus tons of music channels.
Basically worthless. Rarely watch TV. Basically for relatives when they come over.
