What are you paying for Optik TV/Internet

Image

I got gigabit Fiber with unlimited data down to $56/month

Just got off the phone with Telus they are offering me the 11 theme pack + 2 premium Optik tier with two free PVRs for and additional $80/month no term. If I do a two year term then I must go on a two year internet term as well so the net discount will be around the same term or not.

$80.00 / optik 11 theme + 2 PVR
(18.99) / Netflix Premium
(7.99) / Amazon prime
(19.98) / Craze + HBO + Movies
----------
$33.04 So essentially $33.04 for 11 Telus theme packs

This is compared to $12/month for a IKS subscriptions to 91 and 82, I don't subscribe to Crave anyways so Telus is almost $40/month more expensive. Anyone manage to get them lower on price?

Retentions took the whole bill from 216 (off contract) down to about 160.

There's a long thread on Telus deals in the Ongoing Deals forum. Your individual deal would be most helpful to others if you post it there.

Deals are highly individual, depending on where you live, past history with Telus, whether you are a new customer or a retention customer, current Telus sales priorities vs. the services you want, month of the year, competition in your area, which agent you get, and of course whether you are willing to sign a 2-year service agreement where you agree to pay for Telus service but they don't agree to keep the price fixed.

Posted there but sadly that thread turned into most asking to be contacted by reps and never actually sharing their results. For what it's worth the rep did reach out and said what Telus offered me is below what he can do anyways. Guess I'll give retentions a call again later, the agent that offered $80/month said I have a high value account so hopefully I get a supervisor in a good mood.
