Hi,

Please excuse me if this has been asked and covered before, I couldn't find anything that addressed this question.

We intend to be seasonal residents of Eldorado and are looking to find seasonal internet & television service.

Is there such a thing?

If so any leads on the best provider of these services would be great.

Thank you.

How about just using an indoor digital antenna?

I am aware of anything like that offered. Comcast and CenturyLink sell their services as packages for one or two years. I'm sure they would sell it to you outside of the package, but connecting and disconnecting would get old and maybe expensive as there will be a service call every time you reconnect (and maybe to disconnect).

For internet, Comcast is the best option if speed is a consideration.

Beezle's option is the only one I am aware of for TV.

If you can solve the internet issue, then one can buy a streaming box and get all your tv through it with no locked in time periods. The streaming box goes with you wherever you go.

Hi shakman, That was my first thought but I was unsure if such a product existed.

I've never streamed TV before but I suppose if I got an unlimited data plan I could get News, some Sports,

YouTube,NetFlicks and the Spanish Channels.

I'll check Best Buy here to see what they have.

If you just want to watch movies and TV series, join Netflix and Amazon Prime and you can stream those shows from any smart TV. If you want network TV, then contact Comcast and Century Link and see if they have a seasonal option.

I have two of these and they are WONDERFUL. Cable companies need to really, really worry about these little gems.

Comcast will let you go on seasonal hold for 6 months, once a year. I think it is about $10 per service(internet, TV etc.) per month during the hold.
