Get yourself a Nvidia Shield or an Amazon Fire TV, put Kodi, then install Spinz TV Lite build. All you basically need in one-box including Live TV, sports, TV shows, movies, etc.

As for internet, get Novus for condo/apt, Teksavvy for de-tached.

If it weren't for hockey, I'd have ditched cable altogether years ago.

I think it depends on what you qualify as tv. Some has specific channels they would like to have, while other just need the basic tv.

I ditched cable long ago. Just Internet and I can have subs to nba streaming for my sport need and then Netflix and YouTube for the rest of contents

Paying $70 a month right now with Shaw through a rep I found on RFD.

Shaw Personal TV, Internet 30, and home phone.

Six month promos, but he told me to email him during the fifth month to renew the promos.

Only need the internet, but my dad needs the sports and Chinese channels. Probably port the home phone number to his cell phone in a few months.

Right now I'm using TekSavvy internet 30 at $56 tax in and waiting for the skinny tv package that is mandated by the crtc be available by March 1 at $28 tax in. I wouldn't care about skinny tv but the local over-the-air signal can't reach where I'm at due to geography.

Were you an existing customer or new customer when you got the deal? If existing can you PM me the user name on RFD?

this is a really good deal. we have telus tv with sports package/chinese channels, internet 25 (unlimited bandwidth for now) and home phone for $85. everytime we renew our promo it goes up by like $5 but the last time it went up by $3. originally ours was around $70 and we renewed for about 2 years now.

The problem with these 6-month promos is that you need to keep switching providers every 6 months, otherwise you risk paying regular price (which is likely double what you're paying now). It's a huge hassle and inconvenience for most.

not really a HUGE hassle, but i think a few mins on the phone every 6 months is worth it to save a couple hundred dollars

While hoping that there would be a decent telus deal to switch to? No thanks.

The way I see Cable TV, is the same way I see Blockbuster. Technology renders it obsolete.

Telus hardware/interface is brutal.

i'd prefer to just cancel my cable with shaw and wait till another promo is offered than switch my hardware.

then that means u'll have 6 months of service for the promo, then 6 months of no service while waiting to be eligible for another promo. OR u can do what everyone does, which is cxl the acct under ur name, start another new acct under someones name to be eligible for the same promo again. don worry u wont be the only one doing it this way, repeat every 6 months

In December we cancelled our Telus TV and now have Telus Internet 15 (150 GB , 15 mbps download) for about $65 tax in.

Cutting cable has been interesting. We watch more movies and surf the net. We are doing renovations on our old house so that keeps us busy!

Doing some research on TekSavvy this morning. Looks like it would be about $45 tax in for the same speed and 300 GB. (High Speed DSL 15) Just have to pay $75 activation plus $140 for a modem (shipped).

Every 6mo's are you guys switching account names etc?
The deal is good, but how much hassle do you have to go through?
