Today, Cord Cutters News has received word that in October, Spectrum will start rolling out a price hike across most of its plans. This includes TV packages and Internet service.
With this price change, you will now pay $13.50 a month for broadcast TV fees, which is up from $11.99 a month. This will add up to $162 a year to your bill just watch free over-the-air TV you could get with an antenna.
Here are some other price hikes that will reportedly start in October. (Note: The date is subject to change at the last minute.)
- Spectrum Digital Adapters: $7.99 a month (was $7.50 a month)
- Spectrum TV Select: $72.49 a month (was $64.99 a month)
- Spectrum TV Silver: $92.49 (was $84.99)
- Spectrum TV Gold: $112.49 (was $104.99)
Spectrum’s Standard Internet will go up to $69.99 a month (was $65.99) without Wi-Fi or $75.99 with Wi-Fi (was $70.99).
Our sources have told us that Spectrum customers will be notified of the price hikes starting sometime in mid-September on their monthly bill.
Important Note: Spectrum has many different pricing plans. Some customers are still on packages from TWC, for example. The pricing here is for customers using the Spectrum packages and pricing. Price changes may vary slightly depending on your market, but this is a good example of what Spectrum customers will see starting in October.
The good news for cord cutters is that TV costs are going up far faster than Internet costs. So, cord cutters will see their total savings go up not down compared to if they also paid for a Spectrum TV package.
