Verizon Fios. This promotion was for a 24 month no contract triple play package of phone, tv and internet.

If you were lucky enough to live in two special Cablevision areas you were offered a "special rate."  Long Island, NY residents were going  to get a $69.95 rate and Hoboken, NJ residents a $79.95 rate. Both places the promotion was for one week only.

This looks great in the news but Cablevision has had a Direct Sales department of probably 300 plus people going door to door offering this $69.95 price day in and day out since at least mid 2010. If you lived in a Verizon Fios (Platinum) area this was a standard switch price.

The 24 month promotion always includes no contract because Cablevision does not have contracts, 12 month free DVR service and several other 12 or 24 month incentives. This free $200 Apple iPod offer since sometime in 4th quarter 2011.

When a Cablevision spokesman told the Ny POST “It’s an offer that is promotional pricing only for new customers to get them to try our product, not an uncommon practice,” that spokesman was correct. My interpretation of the statement is that probably 90% plus of the "new customers" are really old customers who switched away and definitely nothing uncommon about the $69 price point.
