That's not quite correct. They are an end-to-end provider*, but you have to use their internet. That means that if you only want TV service, you will have to pay for TV and internet, making VMedia TV more expensive than conventional TV providers. Their cheapest internet is DSL6 for $29.95, bringing the minimum price of TheSkinny to $47.90.

* VMedia is a Third Party Internet Access Provider, so they use the incumbent telco or cableco infrastructure for the "last mile".
