Bundle your cable services with Directcom and save money every month.

The only thing that we can be sure of as a small local cable company in our ever-changing industry is that the big content providers who own the television channels will continue to raise the rates to broadcast their shows every year.  Direct Communications has resisted raising our cable TV rates for as long as possible; in fact, although our wholesale costs have gone up every year, we have not increased the retail price on our expanded cable offering since 2008. However, if we are to continue bringing you high-quality programming, the time has come to update our retail rates again.

You have probably heard that all the satellite TV companies already raised their basic rates by about $6 at the beginning of this year. Starting with the July 1 billing period, the retail cost of our basic cable service will increase by just $1, from $21 to $22. The retail rate on expanded cable TV package will increase from the current $39.95 to $46.95. [1]

We will continue to offer great discounts on bundled cable services to help you save more money. We are pleased to announce that you can now choose expanded Cable TV, 6Mb High Speed Cable Internet, and Unlimited Local and Long Distance Calling, altogether for only $99.95 a month. This option will be available starting July 1, 2013.

Thank you for your business. We appreciate your loyalty.

We look forward to many years of providing you with the highest quality entertainment and connectivity. Please call customer service at 548 2345 if you have additional questions.
