Skinny Basic Cable Plans At $25 Coming March 1st


skinny basic cable packages

We shared the Zazeen package at great price of $9.95 per month when you prepay for a year, but for those who prefer to stay with one of the bigger companies, they are mandated to have a Skinny Basic package for $25 or less starting next week.

The packages are fairly standard across the major cable companies and mostly include the mandated channels with no extras.  While some people in optimal areas can get mos of these channels over the air, for those who do not and do not watch many of the extra channels that can be added on for a fee of $3+ it may be worth switching.

Rogers Skinny Basic

This Rogers list shows the standard channels that will be included by most of the companies, although local channels may change dependent on areas.  Leaked documents have shown that the companies do not want these packages promoted, so expect a sales pitch if you try to change to one of them.

So far, only leaked documents are available for the bigger companies, but you can request a switch starting on Tuesday.

    Today’s Hamilton Spectator has an article indicating that the Bell $25 pkg has no US stations in its lineup. So miss the Weather Network, especially on stormy days.

      I imagine they will add them at some point because they would prefer to keep customers at $25 than lose them to Rogers who are offering the US channels because they will get money from add-on channels when offered
