These are a few examples of Spectrum's commercials...

_____, Bad. Spectrum: Good!

GOOD?!

How great is Spectrum since they were once Time Warner Cable?!

The monster in the first video looks a lot like Florida governor Rick Scott.

My God! I thought that was Tobin Bell who plays John Kramer in Saw Series!
My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.

I love monsters, so I enjoy these commercials.  Thumbs Up  Clap

I'm not on Spectrum though, I have Cox Communications.

I guess any high speed internet is better than any DSL.  Smile

I'd be willing to pay $50 bucks a month for high speed internet and phone service if that deal was available in this area and I knew the price wasn't just going to go up in a couple of years anyway.

I'm paying almost that much just for DSL internet with AT&T.

They hiked up the price (here) every year for the first 3 years. Then, they raised the internet charges when I cancelled the TV service.
There was a smart ass sales guy offering to knock 30 bucks off of the TV service if I didn't cancel.
He wouldn't take no for an answer! I finally asked him if we are done now! Angry

I used to use them back when locally they were called Bright House and possibly before that when they were still Time Warner.

Service was OK, but the modem kept on overheating and dropping the signal. Then the price went up at the same time AT&T was offering 2 years at $19.99 per month.

So I went with them and just stayed.

Now they're all around $40 - $45 a month for internet only so I just stay with AT&T even though it's comparatively slow.

Great...a new one with a dummy and...I think one of them was Brain Guy from MST3K!



And the monsters were bitching about their satellite going out on a rainy day!

What's with this trend in commercials recently where the people are dressed up as monsters, trolls, nymphs, fairies and other assorted goons?

It's really getting worn out.

Prices subject to change at the drop of a hat.  All these cable Co's. work together.  Now if they could all cut out commercials? (which was the intent of cable in the first place) Remember?
There's a sucker born every minute.

Expect more from now to Halloween.  Personally, I love the monsters and everything related to Halloween.  Evil Smile

I don't mind these monster Spectrum commercials.  I like monsters and the music is cool.  It's a lot better than some of the other cable/satellite companies' commercials.

I am a total Halloween NERD!!!

The more Halloween commercials the better.

But this other stuff is just becoming a bit over done.

(BTW, it's getting close to time for my annual Thor Halloween tradition cartoon post. If you haven't seen it, stay tuned...)

Wasn't there a Halloween-themed poster here a while back?  I think she got into it with Donathan and then regretted all the bullying and BS and left.  Unhappy

I think there was an 8moredaystoHalloween person here.

Don't remember any issues.

But I have a yearly Halloween tradition here that involves Thor.

If you're around halfway through October you'll see it.
