I posted about this waaaayyy back in May and had a few people ask about it. Comments like "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." LOL. Well, it took me forever to get this because unless you're a Spectrum internet only customer, who has been targeted by them, the sales reps act like you are asking for the secrets to Freemasonry. "Oh, you can't have that." "I've never heard of that." "If you cancel your video service and wait about 30 days." Were just some of the many quotes I heard. We did cancel. We actually cancelled everything over holiday while out of town to see if they would treat us better as "new customers." Called for internet install only. Asked about Spectrum Choice and the guy told me that was a waste and tried to sell me their "Silver Streaming" package of 200 channels. No thank you. Then, I went the route of chatting with customer service. Bingo. The gentleman asked if I knew what ten channels I wanted. Of course I already did. There is a list of about 65 channels you can choose from. Mostly, the essentials. This is where the rubber meets the road. My wife picked 5 and I picked 5. Not as easy as it sounds. TCM, MTV, ESPN, Food, History, BBC, NFL, FX, AMC, and TLC. https://www.spectrumchoicechannels.com/ They toss in your broadcast channels for free - including most of the subchannels (Decades, Antenna, MeTV, etc). This was crucial. If I were nearer Columbus or Dayton, I wouldn't have bothered with this service, but we're just far enough from both and in the hills enough that an antenna won't do it. CSPAN 1,2,3 and all the shopping channels are thrown in too as well as Music Choice. CSPAN 3 is its on History type channel on weekends. This is $21.99 The real value is in the premiums. Starz, Encore, TMC, HBO and Showtime are available for $7 per month or $15 for all 5! Again, weird. Spectrum the first day couldn't do this and told me to chat again in 30 days. I tried again the next day and got them. The great thing here is that all of these scrips open up the apps and beef up your On Demand options. Truly ala carte and we're saving a lot of money. On Demand is nice and the grid is nice. Does a pretty decent job of not teasing what is not available to you. The apps know what you're allowed to get and not. That is kinda pissy. For instance. I have ESPN but not ESPN 2 but I do have ESPN+. Not for long. Went to watch a game that was on ESPN2 on my plus and it was blocked. Also, FXX material is blocked even if it's just old reruns of the Simpsons. Oh well. We have a lot of tv for under $40.
