Whether you’re looking for a basic, cheap internet and TV package or something that gives you the best of both, there’s a bundle for that.
Bundles can be highly customizable—providers usually offer combinations of every TV package and every internet speed they have, which makes for dozens of bundle options available for each provider. Of course, not every option is going to be available in your area, but you’ll still have room to make choices.
For example, if you don’t need the fanciest connection, RCN’s Digital Basic TV + 50 Mbps Internet package is a great starting point. It’s inexpensive and offers good internet speeds for one or two people.
If, on the other hand, you want a ton of options and need a lot of bandwidth for a full house, going with a fiber internet bundle from Verizon Fios or something more customizable like the Spectrum Silver Double Play (where you can choose to bundle any internet speed) might fit your entertainment needs a bit better.
Cox is waiving installation fees on certain bundles. And Spectrum offers contract buyouts up to $500 when you sign up for select Double Play and Triple Play bundles. Check out the best deals on internet and TV bundles in our deals roundup.

What is a bundle?
Bundling is when you get two or more services from the same company (or sometimes partnered companies). Usually, internet can be bundled with TV or home phone services. You sign up for both at the same time for a streamlined, one-stop shopping experience—and the services can usually install at the same time as well.
Most internet providers have a TV bundling option, even if the provider doesn’t have its own TV service. For example, CenturyLink offers modest discounts when you bundle TV services through AT&T TV, DIRECTV, or DISH.
Putting TV and internet services together is called a double play, and adding a third service, like home phone service, would make it a triple play. Some providers also offer things like home security or home automation services to bundle with internet service as well.
Why bundle internet and TV?
Beyond the savings you’ll get, bundling TV and internet with the same company is convenient and allows you to customize your entertainment package. It’s bad enough finding one company that offers good internet service in your area, but doing that process for both internet and TV sounds exhausting. Bundling lets you one-stop shop.
The best TV and internet deals usually come from companies that do both internet and TV. Cable providers like Xfinity, Spectrum, and Cox all started as TV companies and now offer bundled services that are delivered over the same infrastructure. Cable bundles don’t cost the company more money to install over one service (and it gets more money from you for multiple subscriptions), so cable providers like to push bundles with good deals and extra savings.
That said, bundling services with contracts locks you in to both. So if you want to change one, you could face penalties even if you’re keeping the other service the same.
