  • TiVo DVR is also available to schedule and record shows at your leisure. Single-room service is $14.95/mo.* and multi-room service is $19.95/mo.* 
  • TV service will also incur a local broadcast station charge that will vary based on location ($16/mo. in Auburn, IN, just to get an idea). 
  • Since TV and internet are bundled together, you’ll also need a Mediacom modem. You can rent one for $12/mo. or provide your own
  • Paying on time will pay off with Mediacom, as late payments can cost up to $10.
  • If you end your Mediacom cable agreement early, watch out for early termination fees (ETFs). ETFs are prorated based on how long you have had the service. However, promotions that waive the setup fees are sometimes available.

Watch TV on-the-go with TV Everywhere™

Mediacom’s TV Everywhere app lets you watch most of your channel lineup as well as on-demand movies and TV shows from any Wi-Fi-connected screen. Whether it’s your tablet, smartphone or laptop, you won’t miss a thing when you download the TV Anywhere app. 

What channels can I watch on the TV Everywhere™ app?

From ESPN and ABC to BET and Comedy Central, if it’s included in your Mediacom TV plan, you may be able to stream it live from the app. Networks that aren’t available for streaming do not own the rights to all of the content they air. This means that content cannot be viewed online or by app.

Mediacom customer satisfaction ratings

The American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) evaluates feedback from real customers of major TV providers like Mediacom to determine annual scores for each provider.

In 2020, the ACSI gave Mediacom a score of 60/100, which is a noteworthy improvement from Mediacom’s 2019 score of 56/100. However, Mediacom’s customer satisfaction score is slightly lower than other popular cable providers, such as Xfinity (63/100), Cox (62/100) and Spectrum (61/100).

Cable TV providers historically receive relatively low customer satisfaction scores, so don’t let that shy you away from Mediacom service or other major TV providers. When shopping for a TV provider, consider the available packages and pricing in your area and choose the service that best fits your needs.
