As a long-time cord cutter, I returned to being a cable customer for the first time in over a decade with the original gigabit promotion back in June.zaidyboy wrote: ↑ He said IPTV is an option but if you're getting a decent TV package along with rapid internet speeds, why not?
$90 taxes in for 250u + iptv is a decent price however, if you're getting gigabit speeds (unlimited download) along with a decent tv package for $22 more, I'm sure he'd go with the second option.
I've used xbmc/kodi for many years, and had paid Zazeen iptv and Netflix subscriptions.
IPTV -can- work, but not 100% (even with paid subscriptions). Having a channel cut out/jitter fairly often gets annoying really quickly, to the point of also occasionally being unwatchable.
Paying an extra $10-20/month over what I was already paying to have -stable and consistent- cable channels? I could afford it, and it was a reasonable monthly cost to me.
That's where I still feel the $99 gigabit package has 100% hit the sweet spot with pricing. It can bring back the cord-cutters like me. If I was an existing customer paying $150/month or more for a far lesser package? Hell yeah i'd be wanting to switch.
