How to Lower Cable TV Bill that Keeps Increasing Every Year
The worst part about being a cable TV customer is that your bill never stays the same price for very long. It’s not uncommon for cable customers to pay double and even triple from when they started out in just a few years.
The cable TV industry has been very stingy when it comes to offering long term customers discounts on their bills.
Many customers fed up with the lack of promotions available to them even after being with their providers for many years. Simply cancel their TV service and chose less expensive streaming solutions.
With the huge amount of lower cost streaming channels now available, it’s easier than it’s ever been to lower your cable TV bill.
But if you really don’t want to dump your cable TV provider, there are still some easy money saving tips you can use which can lower your monthly bill by a lot.
Demand a Discount – CATV Tip #1
Don’t take no for an answer. When asking a customer service rep, (CSR) for a discount and they tell you sorry, go pound sand. Don’t just get mad and hang up. Ask for their supervisor or a Customer Retention Specialist. A (CRS) has additional authority to offer additional discounts and savings a normal CSR does not.
If a CRS is not available, simply ask to speak to their manager or supervisor. Try to remain extremely patient, and if the next level of support won’t or can’t help you then you know you their hands may have been tied.
Should this not work, try calling at another time of day.
To extract further savings from your monthly cable bill. And nothing worked to have them give you a discount. It’s time to dump them for real and sign-up again under the name of a spouse or significant other. They will then qualify for a one year new customer discount. Which can be a rather significant savings until the promotion runs out.
Then a year later, simply sign back up under your name and continue to enjoy new customer savings.
Dump Extra Cable or Satellite Boxes – CATV TIP #2
Chances are if you’ve subscribed to cable or satellite, they made you rent receivers or cable boxes for every TV you own.
If you own more than one television, these fees can add up fast. The best approach would be to dump all your extra receivers except for one main TV.
The rental fees alone can add a significant cost to a monthly bill. But you will need to buy a media streamer for each TV that no longer has a receiver. But once you add a Roku, Apple TV or Nvidia SHIELD, you can then add these cable anywhere channels and use your same cable TV account user info to login and authorize live cable channels on each of the additional media streaming devices.
Reduce Your Current TV Subscription Package – CATV TIP #3
Downsizing your current television subscription as much as possible by taking advantage of Free streaming channels, Free trials, and special promotions.
Often when new streaming channels launch they offer a limited promotion for new subscribers. These can offer some excellent savings and some will last for many years.
Three are so many free ad-supported streaming TV channels available now that you may find yourself watching less and less cable TV.
Even if you can’t quit your current TV provider cold turkey. Downsizing your subscription as much as possible and supplementing it with on-demand streaming apps can make it a lot easier to quit in the future.
