Cable Committee

Your Hotwire Cable Services

 

Hotwire is our provider (ISP) for Internet, TV and Phone Services. Hotwire deals exclusively with HOA’s. They have no individual retail service; they are organized to deal with communities like ours. Their Fiber to the home [FTTH] service is a world-class infrastructure for the delivery of internet and
communication services that is far superior to any other cable technology.

 

  • Internet speed of 500 mb downloads and uploads.

  • A broad channel line-up.

  • DVR service will be whole house, with 200 hours of programming stored on their cloud-based network.

  • Three wireless DVR set top boxes included.

  • The latest Wi-Fi technology for your house.

  • all services listed as Included, are part of the Rosedale Bulk agreement and will be provided at no additional cost to you.

 

The Rosedale MHOA contract with Hotwire for Internet and Cable TV services is a Bulk Agreement. The cost of the Bulk Services agreement is included in your Rosedale Master HOA Fees. It is expected that these services will be all that is required by many residents and if
so, you pay nothing directly to Hotwire as costs are covered as part of your annual
HOA charges.

In addition to the Bulk Services included in your HOA fees, you may choose optional RETAIL services from Hotwire. Examples of optional services are:

  • Additional Set-Top Boxes,

  • Network Extenders,

  • Land-Line Phone services,

  • Home Security etc.
     

A full list of Bulk and Optional Services as well as Retail pricing can be found on
the Rosedale/Hotwire Website under the Services tab under SHOP. If you choose Optional Retail services, you will receive a monthly bill from Hotwire

 

Some of the significant value we receive from Hotwire is:
 

  • A “futureproof” Rosedale dedicated Fiber infrastructure capable of growth and expansion as our needs change.
     

  • Consistent internet speeds of 500Mbps for both uploads and downloads with our Bulk services will minimize buffering during TV and gaming applications as well as enable home office/business solutions. Need more speed, no problem, optional services are offered for services up to 5 Gbps.
     

  • The latest Wi-Fi technology for your house is included through a “mesh ready" router that can manage many smart devices and is easily expanded to meet your growing needs. Your network will be anchored by an eero pro 6 solution that includes an on-board smart hub that integrates with Alexa and can help manage your in-home smart devices.
     

  • Whole house DVR services are included at no additional cost and work seamlessly across all wireless set top boxes with up to 200 hours of programming stored on a cloud-based network. If a box fails, you lose no recorded programs.
     

  • Up to three wireless set top boxes are provided at in the Bulk agreement and are small enough to be mounted behind your TV or in a cabinet as they are controlled via Radio Frequency (RF) signal and therefore do not require “line of sight” to the remote. They connect wirelessly via Wi-Fi and do not require a cable connection.

  • Other retail services, e.g Landlines and Security are available as well.
     

  • The channel lineup included in the Bulk agreement is extensive and includes most of the channels available in the base spectrum package today. There are optional packages that will be offered to include additional content and premium channels. Note both Digital Access and Digital Favorite channels are included in the Rosedale Bulk Package at no additional expense.  You Can Review and/or print the included Rosedale Bulk Services channels by visiting www.gethotwired.com/rosedale and navigating to SERVCIES – CHANNEL LINEUP.
