Last Edited by xmlwave November 20, 2011 at 10:42 AM
Just got a promo card in the mail for $79.99 Verizon FiOS Triple Play (TV, Internet, Phone) 2-year price guarantee (with 2 year agreement) PLUS you get $300 Visa prepaid card.

Promo valid November 20-28.

Go to verizon.com/holiday [verizon.com] and check the options.

I am seriously considering ditching Comcast and getting on this FiOS deal.

Update: I uploaded scans of the promo

We have 5 TV's in the house and we only pay $3.99/month to rent the CableCard. We do our own decryption (HTPC with Windows 7 and Ceton InifniTV4 tuner and 4x ClearQAM tuners) and distribution through the home network (Media Center Extenders) . We get all the channels we are entitled to, except for on-demand, and have to call in to get Pay-per-View.

It sure beats paying $60/month to have a whole house DVR ($20/month) and 4 additional HD boxes ($10/month each).

If you have a TV that has a Clear QAM tuner, you can pick up "basic broadcast" channels, which are the same channels you can get with an antenna. Everything else is encrypted, and you need a CableCard.

Verizon has it all figured out when it come to CableCard in a PC. They have a utility that you run to activate the CableCard that you can now pick up at the Verizon FIOS store. No need to have techs to come out.

If anyone needs a referral, PM me with your name and e-mail address, and I will send you one.
If you have more than 2 TV's then the media center solution is a better idea. We have three tv's in the house, two hd, and one sd. So the sd box is actually free, the hd-dvr is free, and they waived off the 2nd hd reciever. I only have to pay for the 5 dollar dvr fee. I was currently paying 75 dollars for fios phone and internet, so the extra 5-10 dollars for tv is a no-brainer.

I think the CableCard solution is better if you a comcast user, since they charge less for a cable card tuner. these days you can get xbox 360's for cheap, and the value 299 desktop pc can be good media centers.

Anyone know if you're under contract can you switch to this? It has been a long disaster with fios for my relatives. They switched homes (long story) and Fios could not just swap or move like Directv. So they had to resign up. Well I did the order on the phone and the lady said there was a DVR deal that would really lower the price. She quoted me $109 for triple play. The bill is now $162 only a few months later. The DVR discount she mentioned never happened. And they NEVER use the DVR. So it would be best for them to start over with a good Fios triple play deal and ditch the DVR's. They don't mind a contract. As long as it stays put for 2 years. Thanks in advance.

Wonder if I'd be able to take advantage of this, just having signed up for the double play bundle two weeks ago, just TV and Internet. Think they'd consider it an upgrade and allow it...? Been trying but apparantly the My Verizon (my account) page is having issues. SD effect?

I just checked my relatives address and it states they already have verizon at that address. They've subscribed since August. Then it lists the packages they subscribe to. I see no way to get this deal. I can downgrade or add and remove receivers/services, but this deal is no where in sight for their current address on the verizon website. May try to chat and see what happens.

Multi-room DVR is $19.99 /mo (+$5 a month for the multi-room service), regular boxes are $5.99 /mo, and a regular DVR is $15.99 /mo. Normally these promotions have a DVR (either) and a regular box free for a year, for TV's 3 and 4 you would need to pay for a box or just hook them up with the cable if they have a digital tuner.

As for what happens after the 2 years are up, it's my understanding that you will automatically go month to month at the prevailing monthly rate for your area at that time. You can probably call up and negotiate a new contract or discounts at that point.
My plan started me with a standard receiver. A HD receiver cost $10 and HD DVR cost $16. With all of the HD channels it's pretty much worthless to get the standard receiver unless you have non HD TVs, I tried. The DVR can record 2 programs at once as well.

I don't really mind signing a contract. It locks in my rate for 2 years for a service that I am really reluctant to give up anyway. I had Comcast and then Time Warner after the merger, but I switched to FiOS almost immediately after it was available in my area. I love it. The TV is clear, the phone service is without issue, and the internet doesn't slow down during peak hours like cable does. I don't really have any plans to switch to something else, so the contract isn't a big deal.

Of course, I'm not going to let the reps know that when I call in and ask them to switch me to this plan. I'm not under a contract right now, and as far as they know, I'm willing to leave.

Never get into contract with fios....its 24 months of torturous bill cycles...dont say i didn't tell u later Smilie

Dont get me wrong, their FIOS quality is great, but not their Customer service quality.
