Cable TV packages near me

Available TV package selections will vary by cable TV provider and location.

Check out the channels these top cable TV providers include with their packages.

Cable TV pricing in your area

Monthly costs for cable TV can vary from around $20 for basic TV packages to well over $100 for packages that include lots of channels and premium networks. Additionally, broadcast fees, DVR equipment and the number of TVs you connect can also add to the price of your cable TV bill.

Most cable TV providers also offer add-on packages for premium channels such as HBO® or SHOWTIME®, extra sports coverage, international channels and more. These packs will add to the monthly price, although some cable providers may offer select packages at no extra cost for a limited time.

Cheap cable TV deals 

Looking for affordable cable companies to fit your budget? Cheap cable TV can be found, if you know where to look. The cheapest cable company in your area can depend on where you live. For example, Cox and Xfinity both offer standalone TV packages that start under $30/mo.* Here’s some other tips to find the best, and cheapest, cable TV near you:

  • Ask for a ‘local-only’ or local plus TV package. 
  • Avoid premium channels and equipment upgrades. 
  • Look for bundle offers to get a better value.

Bundling TV and internet together is a great way to potentially save on your cable bill. Along with saving you money on your monthly bill and possibly installation costs, bundling cable TV and internet could qualify you for extra equipment and package options.

Advantages of cable TV service

If you’re weighing cable TV against other types of home TV service, such as satellite, you might want to examine the pros and cons of cable TV. Cable may be a better choice over other TV and internet options in your area. Here are some advantages to cable TV service:

What are the disadvantages of cable TV service?

  • Cost – Along with the monthly cost of your cable TV package, fees, equipment rentals and other costs can easily push the price of cable TV service above $100/mo.
  • Limited channel options – While cable TV does typically offer great channel selection, you are unlikely to get the channel options you’d get with satellite TV, especially when it comes to sports and international packages.
  • Pressure to bundle – Some cable TV providers only make certain equipment or special offers available with TV and internet bundles. Others may not even offer standalone TV service, requiring you to get their internet if you want TV service with them.

Streaming packages and apps from cable TV providers in your area

Some cable providers offer streaming packages in addition to their regular TV packages. For example, Cox’s Contour Flex and Spectrum’s TV Essentials are streaming-only cable TV packages. These packages offer many of the same popular cable TV channels you’d get with their lower-tiered plans, but come at a lower price point. You are, however, required to bundle with internet to be eligible for these streaming-only packages.

Most cable TV providers also offer free live and on-demand TV streaming on their exclusive apps. Cox, Mediacom, Spectrum, Xfinity and others have their own applications that enable you to stream TV on your mobile devices at home or on the go. Some provider apps also give you access to content recorded and stored in your DVR library.

Can I stream cable TV in my area without a cable subscription?

If you’re not interested in cable, or cable TV service isn’t available in your area, there are a few alternatives to bring you a great TV viewing experience.

  • Live TV — Services such as AT&T TV and Sling offer live TV streaming for many of the same channels that are available from cable TV providers. 
  • On demand — Other streaming services, such as Netflix and Hulu, let you stream shows, movies and original series on demand. 

These types of on-demand streaming services can be a good alternative or complement to traditional cable TV service. Want to learn more about alternatives to cable TV in your area? Check out our breakdown of the best streaming services and alternatives to cable TV.

Cable TV FAQs

How much is cable TV in my area?

Basic cable TV plans can range from around $30 to $60/mo. Higher-tiered packages can run $100/mo. or more. Equipment and add-on packages can also increase the monthly cost.

Why are cable TV providers only in certain areas?

The main reason only certain TV providers are available in your area is to help keep costs low. With all the expenses that come with providing cable TV and internet service, attempting to offer new services where another cable provider is already established would not be cost-effective.

Is it cheaper to bundle cable TV and internet?

Quite often, yes. Most cable TV providers offer price discounts and other incentives, such as equipment upgrades, when you bundle TV and internet together. Call our cable TV and internet experts to hear about special offers from cable TV providers in your area.
