How to compare TV providers near you
There are many factors to consider when researching TV services. Cable, satellite and fiber optic TV bring TV into your home using a different technology. Each option also comes with a variety of packages and features, as well as its own set of benefits.
Here’s what you need to know about the different types of TV service to figure out which one is right for you.
Cable TV packages vary widely from simple broadcast TV channels to top of line entertainment packages with HDTV, premium channels and sports channels. Our cable company partners offer a wide selection of basic cable and full-fledged digital TV packages, so you can choose which channels you want.
Allconnect partners offer standalone cable television service, or you can bundle multiple cable services together. Local cable providers vary across the country. We'll show you special offers available at your exact address from local and national cable companies, such as Time Warner, Cox, Xfinity and AT&T.
If you’re looking for an alternative to cable TV, satellite television service from a provider such as Dish Network or DIRECTV is a great choice. Satellite television offers similar features like HDTV programming, digital music and pay-per-view movies. However, satellite TV also gives you access to sports channels, international channels and other premium packages not readily available through traditional cable.
Satellite TV service providers transmit the TV signal into your home from orbiting satellites, which means they can offer nationwide coverage and deliver satellite TV to most homes, including rural areas.
Fiber optic TV offers high-quality TV connections via a wire formed of threaded glass. Advanced fiber optic networks, like Verizon Fios and Frontier FiOS, deliver a superior signal for digital TV packages and provide channel lineups similar to both cable and satellite.
At this time, fiber optic television is not yet available in all areas. But, as more and more people discover the benefits of Fiber TV, demand for the service will grow, and the service will become more widely available.
Find cheap cable
Cable TV doesn't have to be expensive. If you're looking for affordable cable TV, we’ll help you find the cheapest cable TV options near you. Here’s a list of TV providers that offer low-cost cable plans.
What is the difference between satellite vs. cable TV?
Satellite TV signals are transmitted via satellites orbiting in space to satellite dishes attached to homes. Cable is transmitted via coaxial cables from service providers to cables hooked up to outlets in homes with cable TV. Satellite and cable TV also require different equipment. Cable viewers require a coaxial cable connection and a cable box, while satellite TV viewers need a satellite dish to receive the TV signal. Satellite TV is available to most homes nationwide with a satellite dish installed. Cable, on the other hand, is only available to homes connected to a cable network and may not be available in rural areas.
What is HDTV?
Also known as high definition television, HDTV is a digital television display that provides high quality picture and sound. Standard definition television is usually broadcast in 480p, which is only half the video quality of HDTV. Most HDTV programming is broadcast between 720p and 1080i. The biggest difference between standard definition and high definition is the “film like” grainy visual that HDTV erases. HDTV provides a clearer picture, smoother edges and brighter colors.
Who is my TV provider?
TV providers vary nationwide. To find out which TV providers are available in your area, use Allconnect to search for TV options available at your address, compare plans and order a TV provider that’s right for you.
Do I get a discount if I bundle TV and internet?
Yes, most providers offer discounts to customers who bundle TV and internet services together. Because of increased competition between TV and internet companies, service providers often give a discount for setting up all of your services through them rather than getting internet from one provider and TV from another. Use Allconnect to search for service bundle deals for your exact address.
