Is Mediacom worth the cost?

Yes, Mediacom is usually worth the money, but there's one major caveat. Mediacom offers a solid television service, with reasonable prices, a decent channel selection, and a good DVR. It also comes bundled with speedy internet. However, it leaves a lot to be desired for sports fans. There are no sports channels in the first-tier package, hardly any in the second tier, and several key channels are missing in others (including NFL Network). If sports programming is important to you, we recommend looking elsewhere.

Want to bundle TV with other services?

If you’re looking to bundle your Mediacom TV with other services, you’re in luck. First of all, the provider only offers TV as part of a bundle, so you don’t have a choice. However, Mediacom’s internet service is quite good, with reasonable pricing and speeds up to 1 Gbps. You can also add home phone service (if you still use it).

Savings tip: Services often come highly discounted when you buy them together. Be sure to check
Mediacom's bundling options.

Switching to Mediacom?

Switching to Mediacom can be a bit pricey. While there aren’t any upfront costs to worry about, your first TV bill is likely to include several one-time charges, including the installation fee, an activation fee, and a Wi-Fi certification fee. These can catch you by surprise if you’re not prepared.

Savings tip: Mediacom often has
sign-up promotions
for first-time customers. Call 1-844-716-2788 to ask a rep about current deals and discounts.

Canceling Mediacom services?

Canceling Mediacom is unfortunately complicated. Since the provider locks you into a contract, you’ll have to pay early termination fees if you cancel inside the contract term. The fee depends on the length of your specific contract—up to $120 for a one-year term, and up to $240 for a two- or three-year term. That said, the cancellation process itself shouldn’t be too much trouble. Just call Mediacom customer service and let the company know you’re done.

Locked into a contract? Call Mediacom at 1-844-716-2788 and speak to a rep about available options.
Costs to consider:
  • Activation and installation costs: $109.99, but promotions may lower the price
  • DVR fee: $14.95/mo. for a single room or $19.95/mo. for multi-room
  • Additional equipment fees: $8.50/mo. for each extra TiVo box
  • Regional sports fee: $2–12/mo. depending on location
  • Broadcast fee: $17–25/mo. or more depending on location
  • Contract length: 1–3 years
  • Cancelation fee: Up to $240
  • Modem fee: $14/mo.
