Help me find a deal on TV/Internet Service

25 10 July 2, 2018 at 08:40 PM
I am trying to help my son find the best deal, with good service, for Internet and TV Service. He lives alone and he's the only one using the Internet. He will be using it for school, gaming, etc. For tv, he is into sports, especially NBA and NFL. In the area he lives, he has 3 choices...Google Fiber, Comcast, and AT&T Uverse (with AT&T Fiber). The more I look at it, the more confused I get. Any advice on deals out there or any discounts available? Thanks!

He would be better off if he could 'cut the cord' and use internet + antenna for his watching needs.

If he's addicted to sports, then you have limited options (go to the bar or student commons to watch the game). In any case, you have to ask yourself, is it $1200/yr worth sitting on the couch when I should..or could, be outside doing something?

Applause Totally agree.
That's what I did for my son, he only has internet which he shares the cost with his college roommates.

So you will pay his bill? Just give him your budget and ask him to find a deal by himself.

He pays his own bill? Dealing with utilities is the essential skill so ask him to find the deal alone, You cannot help him forever.


Google fiber plus NBA or NFL streaming pass should be best choice.
