Frequently asked cable TV questions
How much does cable cost?
The cost for cable TV service varies by provider, and providers vary by location. Each cable provider offers different channel packages and charges (or doesn’t charge) specific fees for DVR service, multiple TVs, HD picture, etc. The best way to find out how much cable in your area costs is to call our experts at Allconnect today.
How many shows can I record with cable?
DVR receivers and the number of shows you can record at once varies by cable provider. Some DVR systems let you record 2 shows at once while others can record 6 or more. Additionally, some receivers have more storage space than others.
Why are cable companies only in certain areas?
There are many reasons, but the main reason is to help keep costs low. With material and labor costs to install and service cables, network licensing fees and many other costs, it can be expensive for cable companies to provide service. By focusing their efforts in specific areas, they help keep their operating expenses lower, which helps keeps prices lower for you, the consumer.
Are streaming services cheaper than cable?
Streaming, or “over-the-top” services can save you some money if you subscribe to only one or two. However, the cost of over-the-top services can quickly add up. You might need to subscribe to multiple streaming services - Netflix, Hulu, YouTube TV, HBO Go, etc - to get the entertainment you would get with a similarly-priced cable package.
Is Time Warner Cable now Spectrum?
Yes. Charter acquired Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks. Former Time Warner Cable and Bright House services now fall under the Charter Spectrum brand. If you live in an area formerly served by Time Warner Cable or Bright House Networks, call Allconnect to shop Charter Spectrum packages available in your area.
Can cable be wireless?
Most cable TV providers, including Spectrum and Cox do not offer wireless cable boxes. You can ask your professional installer to run the coaxial cables in a way that hides them, such as behind furniture or in the walls. If you prefer wireless receivers, consider satellite TV from DISH or DIRECTV. Both providers offer wireless receivers
