I'm thinking of getting rid of this and saving sixty dollars a month but I don't know what channels it includes.

Does anyone know what you get with plain basic cable as opposed to expanded basic?

Hi Jay - my name is Ashley, and I'm with Suddenlink. Expanded Basic programming includes all channels in your area under Channel 100, and Basic programming usually will give you local channels up to Channel 20.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me directly. My email is: ashley-AT-suddenlink-DOT-com.

Suddenlink is very high and just needs some competition! I have their extended basic and internet and it's $101 a month! Sad but all I ever see is reruns of everything! I would get dish but good lord they want a $500 deposit! Don't downgrade it will only save you like 5 dollars sad but true and so not worth it. Hope this helped and of course I blasted my opinion lol!

I downgraded awhile ago dropped my bill pretty good I was paying around 112 for expanded basic and cable Internet now I'm paying 65 for twenty basic channels and internet.

Netflix does a nice job of covering for the channels I lost.

All a person needs is sports center, local news, Seinfeld reruns and porn. I swear that is all i watch and I still pay around 100.00 a month. Oh yea on occasions I watch the Mountaineers lay but I usually go to a bar to watch it.

I am a former customer. Have tried suddenlink/cox cable, dish & direct, only have had problems w/dish & direct (much better customer service w/cable co to). Cable is my choice by far. Only cable co I have had, and they always treat me with kindness and respect, even if I owe them money. My choice of companies.

I do directv for my tv and suddenlink for my Internet. You get more bang for your buck with directv: hd, Dvr, more channels at a lower price. I would be paying suddenlink more than $150 for the directv package I have now for $50 less, even more if you go basic.

Suddenlink basic 20 is the same channels you can get with an antennae from the dollar store and save 40 a month. Just sayin.

I have the dual bonded internet from Frontier which costs me $49.99 a month. I pay for a Netflix account which costs me $7.99 a month. I pay for Hulu which is also $7.99 a month. I also in vested in a Roku box.

Using the Roku box I stream Netflix and Hulu as well as hundreds of other channels. The Roku box was a one time investment of $99. I also invested in a flat panel RCA digital antenna at Best Buy for $19.99. This gives me 30 local channels over the air. My total cost to keep the wife and kids entertained a month is $65.97.

I do not have to watch what they program. I can watch tv shows and movies at my leisure. And it is in digital high definition. I refuse to deal with cable companies anymore. They continue to provide substandard service and programming for increasing prices. There are always better alternatives.

to get all the channels in the bedroom she'd have to have another receiver in the bedroom. I'm sure it's another 15-20 a month more, they are very high, I'd have satellite if I could.

Suddenlink is a horrible company, i had their cable and their internet for two years. Let me tell you something it will never happen again. First off i paid 150 a month was never late always paid early, but on 3 different occasions my service was cut off and one time i come home early from work and there is a sudden link guy actually removing my internet box from my house. Well of course naturally, I lose my fuckung mind on this guy who just following a work order and when i ask to see while, im on the phone with sudden link trying to find out whats going on. I read over the order and it was not even my account or street. Yes thats right these dumb ass people sent rhe tech to the wrong place, because he could not find the street so he calls and they send him to my house. So what does sudden lunk say, we're sorry, we will give yoy a credit for the inconvenience? No thet simply it was misunderstanding and i was like no it was a misunderstanding the last 3 times it happen, now its bullshit, not to mention i had to fight with them for a year because my internet sucked and when they finally fixed it. It toom the guy five mins and 2.00 dollar piece if equipment. Which made me even more mad because i explain to him what had been going on and he said I quote. "Sudden link does not care about their customers, they've told me this many times, go out on a call make look like you fix it and our reps can deal with the calls because its not like they have other providers to go too".... end quote but now i have dish and frontier internet and could not be happier i ve been away from sudden link for two years now and will never go back, also havent had my serv turned off either lol.... also when sudden link sends all the offers in the mail i save them up and take them to the store in the mall walk up to the counter and dropp them off. The first time i did the lady said we cant take these, they are special offers to you only to which i replied and this is my special reply back don't send me trash and i will not have bring them to the dump. After a few times they finally stop sending me stuff, i guess after all the hatful letters i would add they finally got the point.#Fucksuddenlinkcable
