Which TV Service Provider Should You Choose?



Even though the internet has made its presence felt in the world of entertainment and information, television still has not lost its importance. As many as 77 percent of the people of the United States are television watchers. If you find this hard to believe, know that we did not pull this number out of thin air and that this number came from one of the most credible sources of all – the United States Census Bureau. And it is not like that 77% of Americans only watch television for a few minutes – while 55 percent watch television anywhere from 1 to 4 hours, 22% watch the show for an even bigger amount of time!

As a response to such a big demand for television services comes a large supply of them. Have only heard of a few providers? Well, you will be surprised to know that there are almost 450 cable service providers operating just within the territories of our great country! While having a diverse range of cable providers to choose from is a good thing, having such a long list of options can make choosing between them a bit difficult indeed.

In case you are one of the people looking for a television service provider, we will be making your job easier by telling you the characteristics of the most popular TV providers in the country. This way, the amount of research you will have to do to find out the best television service available to you will be reduced to a great extent.

Without further ado, let us get going:


Xfinity TV is one of the most sought-after cable services in the United States. There are many factors that contribute to its popularity.

The first is that it offers a set of large channel lineups (even the mid-tier package of Xfinity features more than 125 channels). Yet another thing about Xfinity is that you can get access to on-demand television and your most preferred streaming applications when you subscribe to the brand’s television services. This is enabled through the Xfinity X1 box. The Xfinity X1 feature also gives your television DVR capability. What this means is that you can have your favorite shows and movies that play at an inconvenient time recorded for future viewing.

The X1 Voice Remote is another cool feature of having an Xfinity TV subscription; through it, you can easily switch between channels and programs. Last but definitely not least, the Xfinity TV stream app not only lets you stream live TV on your mobile, laptop, desktop, or tablet, but it also allows you to watch on-demand drama series and films on them.

What’s even better is that you can pair it up with Xfinity internet in a package to enjoy double services at affordable rates!


Spectrum is yet another brand that provides amazing television service.

Just like Xfinity TV, Spectrum TV also features large channel lineups. These channel lineups are wide not only in terms of the number of channels they feature but also in terms of the types of channels they feature.

For example, on Spectrum TV, you will be able to find channels that not only correlate to your state but also your entire country and even the entire world! In a similar fashion, yet another thing that Spectrum subscribers can enjoy is a movie channel, a sports channel, a news channel, a music channel, and an education channel all on the same channel lineup. How does that sound for a channel lineup? Amazing, no?


Frontier may not nearly be as big a provider as the two mentioned above but still deserves an honorable mention for a very special reason.

It is a pioneer of telecom service provision in rural areas. Basically, brands typically did not think expanding their services to rural areas was a very smart decision owing to the low population density of rural areas (for every additional meter of cable lines, you connect many more houses in cities than in villages).

Frontier oftentimes takes the lead in introducing new telecom technologies to people.

Wrapping Up

Above, we have mentioned three of the best television service providers operating this year in the United States. Now that you know their unique characteristics, it is up to you to decide which one of them fits your needs the best.
