    What's the verdict? Is this a good deal?

    My building is negotiating a bulk TV/Internet deal with Roger. For $51/month including taxes, it includes:

    1) VIP TV Cable package which is:
    400+ channels
    65 HD channels
    40 commercial free digital music channels
    4 outlets
    Crave TV, HBO, STARZ, movies

    2)One 4K PVR and one HD box

    3)digital services fee ($3/mnth is waived)

    4)Rogers Ignite 1 Gig internet with unlimited data

    5)Fastest Rocket or Gigabit Wi-Fi modem

    Also a few other things.

    I already have Netflix and Amazon Prime so I am hoping/assuming those things will not be affected.

    To my non-technical eye, it seems like I should opt in. Is there any downside to this?

    A bargain.

    Is this a introduction rate,say for the first 3 months? Then it goes up?

    My building just kicked them out. We were paying about $40 a month for pretty good basic coverage. I am pissed. However, I got a package deal with half the channels and internet thrown in for around $100.00. I kicked Telus internet to the curb. So sort of even steven price wise.

    Forgot to mention that this price is locked in for 6 years.

    Great deal. All that for $51 is a steal.
    ... there is no shame in not knowing. The problem arises when irrational thought and attendant behavior fill the vacuum left by ignorance.
