I just received an email from Altice One saying that for an extra $10 per month I can lock in my current price for life. The headline says A lifetime deal that actually lasts a lifetime. The funny thing is the fine print says this: Pricing, offers & terms are subject to change & discontinuance w/o notice.

I will probably take them up on this offer but I just found the fine print hilarious. Anyone familiar with this?

Given that pricing seems to be going nowhere but down, why pay more to keep the price you're currently getting?

Doesn't seem like prices are going down to me. They keep raising prices by $5-10 every year. Plus, they will give me 6 months of free DVR if I take the deal.

The only prices that mainly go down are for new customers.. Wife and I have wow since 2014 when her mom passed away and we moved into her house.Still using her account that's been active for 19 yrs.. speed was 10 Mbps 5yrs ago..2 yrs ago went up to 30 Mbps and this yr it's 100Mbps...Have to call customer loyalty Dept every yr and they give us the new customer prices for another yr contract..Been paying $35 month since we moved in... plus free cable.still works..lol

I just called them up and signed up. It's a pretty good offer. It's new customer pricing plus $10 more per month. At least now I don't have to worry about price haggling every year. Worth it to me.

Your likely good for about 3 years. The $10 extra covers the price increase in year 2 and year 3.

Don’t call lifetime, lifetime if you can’t offer it for a lifetime.

Even TiVo lifetime is a scam as they won’t transfer lifetime service

Yeah, that's what I figured. The fine print says they can change prices at any time but I'm willing to give it a try. We'll see how it goes.

My local telco used to offer lifetime pricing but the downside was that you couldn't upgrade or downgrade your service without breaking the offer. Of course what they were offering me was 512K service and they wonder why they never get any takers.

This is what made me drop dish for over 20+ years. I got everything i had with dish +HBO and my regionals back. only channel i miss is the NHL Network. I get 400mb down internet as well for the same price as i was just paying dish alone. Only thing they can change is Starz/Showtime pricing and the dreaded "fees" for locals and sports surcharge. eww.. the HD on Altice is so much better than dish but i was using an old 722 so that may have made the difference.
