Centurylink Bundles

Updated on February 25, 2014

Most residential customers today prefer "The Bundle", a package of video, internet, and home phone services from one provider. It just seems to make things easier when you have one company to pay, and to call when there is a problem. But for phone companies, the bundle isn't the easiest product to sell as their networks were designed with one thing in mind - providing phone service.

CenturyLink is a telecommunications company with this problem, how to provide video service to their end user. They have adapted nicely in the last decade, offering a few different ways to bundle service at an affordable price. In this hub I will review some of the Centurylink bundle options available to you, the customer.


Internet Based Bundles From Centurylink

In the past, Centurylink focused on home phone service, as that was everyone's line to the outside world. Now that internet based communication has supplanted home phone service, it makes sense for the company to feature their DSL service first and foremost.

While you can get stand alone DSL service from Centurylink, they would prefer that you bundle service with a phone line. Current offers get you a DSL connection with speeds ranging from 1.5 Mbps all the way up to 40 Mbps. Visit their website or call 1-800-244-1111 to see what speeds are available in your neck of the woods.

Two bundles are available, one that gives you a three year price lock on your internet service for $19.95 a month, and one that offers a lower rate for one year. Either way, you will have the convenience of both a home phone and a broadband internet connection with Centurylink.



Triple Play Bundles with Centurylink

While having your home phone and internet service with one company is nice, its even easier with a triple play package that adds video into the mix. There are a couple of video products available with Centurylink - DIRECTV and Prism TV.

DIRECTV is the national satellite television service that most have seen or subscribed to in one form or another. Basically it involves having a small dish mounted facing the southern sky, usually on the side or top of your home. From there, everything works just like traditional cable television.

One of the popular options with DIRECTV is the NFL Sunday Ticket package, which lets you watch any game on Sunday. This premium sports package has been a DIRECTV exclusive for 20 years, and is usually included for free for one year if you are a new customer.

If you bundle DIRECTV with other Centurylink services, you will get a deeply discounted rate during the first year, then pay regular rates the second year. A two year agreement is required for the DIRECTV portion of the bundle.

The other option to complete your Centurylink Triple play is Prism TV, a new product available in a dozen or so markets. No dish is required with this product, rather the signal is delivered over the phone line along with your DSL and phone service.






Centurylink Prism TV

Prism TV Availability and Pricing

Markets where Prism TV is available include Colorado Springs, Phoenix, Omaha, and Las Vegas. While the service may be deployed to other areas in the Centurylink footprint, no bold plans have been announced by the company.

Pricing on the product ranges from $49.99 a month for the Prism Essential (140 channels) all the way up to the Prism Premium for $112.99 monthly. Obviously the low end package will get you the basics when it comes to the cable channel universe, while the higher end bundle gets you around 300 channels including dozens of premium movie channels.

If Prism TV is one of the options in your area, there are cash back promotions that are offered from time to time. One current offer bundles the 12 Mbps internet service with your Prism cable television - netting you a $100 Visa gift card in return if you sign up for a one year contract.

Deals do change from time to time, so check with the company directly to get the best offer going at the time.
