I signed up for new service today. "Standard Triple Play" showed 125+ channels on web site, no NESN.
Then TV Only shows "Limited 10+" Economy (100+) "Starter 140+" Preferred 220+ and Premier 260+
So I called and rep first said that Standard Triple Play had same stations as "Starter", but I pointed out that 125+ is not the same as 140+ and that detail on 125 did not show NESN but detail on Starter did. So she told me that NESN "must not be available in your area". When I asked to speak for supervisor, got sent to hold then call dumped.
Calling back I got someone who seemed to have more of a clue and who told me that NESN (Red Sox) and NBCSports (Celtics) was in the Standard Triple Play package. Which of course is quoted at 79.99 but ends up being $123.00 due to box rental, cable modem rental, access fees and taxes in the usual bait-switch pricing model of Cable and FiOS.
We shall see if it really is included... You don't see it if you explode the triple play tiers of channels, only in the "TV Only" detail.
