I always thought Cablevision was the worst company in the world, until I moved to Charlotte and started dealing with Time Warner Cable. Being bought out and becoming Spectrum hasn't helped them much. Every year it's the same thing "Thank you for being a loyal customer, we're only going to raise your rate $20 a month..." I had been paying $210 a month for cable/internet/telephone - even though I don't use the phone, they kept telling me it made the package less expensive. A few weeks ago, I got my latest bill - it went up to $266! I spent an hour and a half on the phone with them, called them criminals, went around in circles over the bill - I rolled off the program I was on, so I went to full rate. It arrived 2 days after my billing period started, and in May they announced they would no longer pro-rate monthly bills if you make a change.
Last Thursday, I called them (a few days before my new billing period starts) and cancelled cable and phone, going to internet-only for $65. I then signed up for YouTube TV at $50 a month. So far, it's been fine, and I'll be saving $150 a month, so I'm happy about that.
