I would like to possibly switch from set top boxes to streaming, but I was told I would have to turn in my boxes and then switch. I would like to try the app first to see if it is satisfactory. I was also told that once you turn in your set top boxes, in some areas, you can't switch back from streaming to using the boxes. I would like to try it, but not under these conditions.1 vote
There needs to be a middle package. Something that's between the $25 Economy and $65 Standard that would contain some of the other channels mentioned in the other posts....specifically kids and sports. I have Xfinity internet and Hulu. I spend less than $100 for internet and tv with most of the channels offered in the Standard package. I would swap if there was a more competitive price.2 votesUnder consideration · AdminRob Rubinoff (C Spire TV Product Manager, C Spire Home Services) responded
Matt – Thanks for this suggestion.
Unfortunately, our contracts with major content providers (e.g., Turner, Disney, NBC Unversal, etc.) explicitly state which of their channels need to be in what package we offer. Consequently, while we would like the flexibility to create content packages with fewer channels and offer them at a more attractive price-point, the massive media companies structure their agreements in such a way so as to explicitly prevent us from doing so.
We vehemently oppose this required bundling and will continue to do so. Our desire as your Internet and TV provider is to have the flexibility to offer TV entertainment that best matches the needs of our customers in terms of content and price.
Thanks again for your suggestion!
