Re: Switching to WOW - couple ?
And with Ultra TV and a PlayOn subscription (on sale now - lifetime subscription for $50 one-time fee), you can stream directly to those TVs.
However, I am hoping for a native Netflix app for Ultra TV, since PlayOn (or any other DLNA server) cannot give you HD Netflix (or other services) due to the transcoding (most computers couldn't handle it). Also, then I could add movies to my queue and other stuff like that. Still, PlayOn provides a reasonably seamless integration of these services.
You shouldn't need 50/5. Start with 30/3, and then go from there. CableCARDs are available for lease $3.50 a month. If you don't want Ultra TV and get Digital Signature, you'd be eligible for a discount due to the equipment rental benefit:
$135 Digital TV Signature, 30/3 Internet, Advanced Phone
$5.00 DOCSIS 3.0 Modem
-$7.00 Customer Equipment Discount
total price: $136.50 plus tax
subtract $10 if you only want Digital Basic, but all the extra channels is well worth the extra $10
subtract $30 if you don't want phone.
add $13 for HD DVRs, $10 for SD DVRs, $7 for HD receivers
Because of your streaming uses, you may want to consider Ultra TV:
$135 Ultra TV Signature, 30/3 Internet, Advanced Phone
$25 Ultra TV Equipment Package (includes 2 media players)
total price: $163.50 plus tax
again, subtract $10 for Ultra TV Basic, and $30 if you don't want phone.
add $15 per media player
