Mediacom’s TV plans will make you jump through a few more hoops compared to other providers. If you just want TV service from Mediacom, your only option will be the Variety TV package at its standalone rate of $106.99 per month. Variety TV is Mediacom’s largest TV package that includes basic cable channels like DIY Network and ESPN.
When you bundle Mediacom internet and TV service, you’ll get access to more TV packages. Along with Variety TV, Local TV offers a basic lineup of local and regional channels, while Essential TV includes basic cable networks like Nickelodeon and FX. Local TV, Essential TV, and Variety TV will add $10.00, $40.00, or $60.00 per month on top of your Mediacom internet plan.
But we’re not fans of Mediacom’s decision to require an internet plan to get Local TV and Essential TV. We also dislike Mediacom’s three add-on channel packs, which cost an additional $7.95 per month for channels (ESPNews, Cooking Channel, MTV2) that are commonly included by other TV providers.
Variety TV is our Mediacom package pick because you’ll get the most basic cable channels for your home. Mediacom’s lower-tier packages are affordable, but Local TV has a barebones channel lineup while Essential TV is missing common channels like ESPN and Disney XD.
