I've never had a problem with their billing. I've been with them for several years now, and been in contract for most of those years (last year and a half or so has been out of contract).

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 think there is a 30 day refund policy. Call them and ask to upgrade or threaten to cancel...

Yeah, I've thought about running an HTPC. We have 3 TVs, but two are old and don't use HD. One of those only has the digital adapter box attached to it, so there's no guide or anything, but it's free.
We have 3 non HD TV's in our house & when I build the triple play bundle they charge me $3.99 per digital adapter per month which I thought was crazy since it's not a set top box. You are definitely getting them for free?

I got the free digital adapter when the switch from analog to digital first happened. Back then, you were eligible to get one for free, and the rest had to be paid for. I only needed one, as we have a standard box for the other non-HDTV. They might not do the free offer any more.

I'd like to know more on this...cause paying $16 a month per box vs another option that pays itself off probably in a year, Im all ears.

Microsoft makes it very simple. Windows 7 is already CableLabs approved for decrypting encrypted cable television legally. Any version, but the starter, has Windows Media Center. So, just buy a $20 Media Center remote, or Logitech Harmony to make the operation transparent to the user.

Ceton (4), SiliconDust (3), Hauppauge (2) and ATI (1) all have CableCard enabled tuners from 4 tuners per CableCard (Ceton) to 1 tuner (ATI).

There are Windows Media Center Extenders or XBOX 360 that allow you to dynamically share the tuners, and all of your media content through the home network.

And you have your self full whole house entertainment system.

Don't believe anything Verizon says on the phone. If you don't have it in writing either through the online order form or a chat log there will end up being some "mistake" and you will end up paying a lot more than you were told, with no recourse since you have no proof.

Even with proof it's not so easy... I had the double play for 74.99, when I got an ad ON MY BILL for 69.99 for the triple play for 2 years, no contract. Well when my first year was up, the credit disappeared, and when I called them, they asked for proof... so I faxed them my bill with the ad on it, and they still said, sorry, their system won't allow them to do it...

Finally after talking to a supervisor, they gave me a one time credit for the the difference for the remaining year (about $240), but I've heard horror stories about their billing practices.

I would actually get this deal if they would allow it for existing customers, but they likely won't. Maybe if I accept the contract term they might. I can also upgrade my phone from analog to digital. Maybe that will be enough. I'll check when I have time.

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.
Verizon's deals almost never include the price of the set top boxes. That's how they get you. The multi-room DVR is $20/month and each additional HD box is $10/month. After your contract expires in 2 years, expect your bill to go up significantly (if not double).

ummm, if you read the post you replied to, we only pay $3.99 per month in equipment rental charges.

We DO NOT rent any boxes from Verizon. We do our own decryption a distribution through the home network.

Our basic bill is $65.99/month, plus $3.99/month for the CableCard + $6 or $7 in taxes for Triple Play with HD Prime, 20/5 Internet, and local/long distance/international land line phone service.

We are not under a contract whatsoever. We can leave whenever we want to, but since this is thebest deal around, we are staying with Verizon.

I just noticed that theres an Agreement required. I will pass on this since the $300 would probably go toward a cancellation fee ><

how do you do your own decrypting? so do you use the ethernet from the ONT or the RJ45?

I was considering switching to verizon when they had one of these promotions, but several of my friends said that billing is a nightmare.
