Verizon, Breaker of the Cable Bundle? No Really

Verizon plans

Verizon's new "Mix & Match" plans are meant to target the cable industry. In addition to letting customers choose their TV and broadband offerings, Verizon also eliminated the annual contracts that traditionally were included in the triple bundles of voice, video and broadband.

"There's not a promotional roll-off and a dramatic price increase, which is the case today". Both major satellite providers, Dish Network (67) and DirecTV (66), scored better than any cable service. 'As a result, we're transforming our approach to Internet and TV offers by giving customers more choices and more transparency.

"Tired of buying a package of services that they don't want to offer at the cheapest tariffs, customers will find that these tariffs do not include additional fees and surcharges", said Frank Boulben, Verizon's senior vice president of marketing, in statement. "We're putting an end to the traditional bundle contract and putting customers in control". On one hand, it is nice to see that Verizon is open to mixing and matching plans. Verizon also sells YouTube TV (for $ 50 a month) to Fios online customers, if that is their preference, in accordance with an agreement signed a year ago with Google. During the third quarter earnings call, chief financial officer Matthew Ellis gave a preview of the new customized offerings for TV and broadband.

Those who are still interested in large TV packages will have a steep price to pay.

The Nanny becomes a musical with Fran Drescher and Rachel Bloom
Drescher will not play Fran in the musical, per the Times - couldn't you plotz?! - and other casting has not yet been decided. Well get ready, because now the hit 90s sitcom the "Nanny" is getting the song and dance treatment as well.

Through Mix & Match, customers will be able to match whatever level of service they want without having to agree to other unwanted services or support. Moreover, streaming-video apps won't necessarily lead to lower monthly bills either: Verizon's mid-rate internet option (with router), plus Disney+, Netflix and HBO Max would cost a combined $110 a month (although Verizon is now offering internet users a year of Disney+ free, and Verizon wireless customers can get other savings). Verizon will also recommend a package of about 125 channels. On the other hand, $50 (plus $12 a month for the Set-Top box) could still feel rather steep. Their main objective is to give customers more choices and more "transparency". The first two plans cost an extra United States dollars 15 per month for the router. The larger TV packages include the monthly cost of one set-top box rental and customers who sign up for the $90 package are allotted a $12 credit for DVR service.

All television plans include local broadcast networks, including ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, Telemundo and Univision.

Test Drive all the channels we offer for 60 days and, based on your household's actual viewership, we'll recommend which plan is right for you. If they get Internet, they choose one of three speeds: 100 Mbps for $ 39.99, 300 Mbps for $ 59.99 or the Gigabit connection for $ 79.99. On the voice side, Verizon is offering an unlimited phone service for $20 per month.

New and existing customers can switch to Mix & Match on Fios plans via the My Fios app or at Verizon Mix & Match subscribers can also cancel their services without early termination fees.
