Think Twice Before Cutting the Cord



Video packages are a cost-effective way to keep up on all your favorite shows, especially new and returning favorites this fall. Home Telecom offers a wide variety of video packages to help save customers money - and not only that but it’s incredibly convenient to have one package versus keeping track of several different subscriptions with several different bank draft days.

If you’re on the fence about video packages and prefer individual subscriptions, consider the cost savings of signing up for a package with Home Telecom.

Home Telecom offers a “Good” package which is a bundle that includes 25 Mbps internet service and Basic Video (120 channels, including free HD). This package is $119.95, but the cost of the video package is only $79.98. If you want to bump it up a level and go with the “Better” bundle that also has video and 50 Mbps of internet, it’s only $139.95. This works out to about $87.98 for video, which includes more than 250 channels, including free HD channels.

Here’s why video packages are such a great deal. If you were to purchase all your favorite channels separately, consider these costs:

  • HBO Now - $14.99 per month
  • CBS All Access - $5.99 per month (includes Limited Access with one free week) or $9.99 per month (Commercial Free with one free week). If you sign up for an annual plan, you get 15% off.
  • Amazon Prime - $12.99 per month or $119 billed annually. Prime video only is $8.99 per month.
  • ESPN+ - $4.99 per month that does not include flagship ESPN programming
  • Starz - $8.99 per month
  • NFL Game Pass Subscription - $99.99 per year
  • Hallmark NOW - $5.99 per month or $59.99 per year
  • Lifetime Movie Club - $3.99 per month or $39.99 per year
  • Netflix - $7.99 per month (basic), $10.99 per month (standard) or $13.99 per month (premium)
  • Hulu - $7.99 per month (limited commercials) or $11.99 per month (no commercials). Live TV (BETA) is $39.99 per month. They offer some add-ons, such as Cinemax, which is $9.99 per month.x - $7.99 per month (basic), $10.99 per month (standard) or $13.99 per month (premium)

If you total up all these extra subscriptions and then add your regular channels and internet costs to your monthly utility bills, you’ll be paying more money for fewer channels and could be limiting yourself to how many streams you and your family can watch at a time.

Before you sign up for all these individual subscriptions this upcoming fall, remember to check out Home Telecom’s Bundle Builder, which is not only convenient but can help to decrease your monthly utility expenses.
