Sick of huge TV packages from Comcast? It seems that they have heard you and will soon be offering packages starting at $10 a month. These new packages are part of what Comcast calls their Comcast Vision 2020. This is an effort to draw cord cutters back to cable TV.
Cord Cutters News has confirmed that in 2020 Comcast will start to offer smaller TV packages called Choice. These packages will cost between $10 and $20 each allowing customers to build their own TV bundle. There are premade packages for news and entertainment and even a package to add local TV channels.
The catch with these new Comcast Choice packages is you will still be paying fees like equipment fees if you want a DVR for example. Also, our sources say if you are not careful these smaller bundles could add up to be more than Comcast’s traditional bundles, which Comcast still plans to sell.
Our sources tell us Comcast’s smaller $10 packages are an attempt to bring cord cutters back to cable TV. The hope is cord cutters will eventually add additional packages or services like wireless phone or home security to the inexpensive Comcast Choice packages.
No exact date has been set for when the new Comcast Choice packages will launch but they will be rolling out in 2020.
A few other changes that Comcast is making with their Vision 2020 plan include dropping some channels from their current packages and making it harder for phone agents to offer discounts. Comcast reportedly wants to limit discounts for customers who are no longer considered new to only customers who bundle other services like phone or home security.
