Yep, Ditching cable tv

October 13th, 2012 at 06:08 am

We tried cable tv for the first time when we had our second son (turning 3). We thought we'd be home more. We are, but it still isn't worth the money. Even though we still are in the same 'deal' the cable company manages to charge us closer to $60 a month for cable tv, rather than the 35 it was supposed to cost us. Most of that is in an ever-changing array of fees and charging for services that used to be free, such as the cable box, dvr and a separate charge for HD dvr. I'm over it. So is DH. I tried to call yesterday to cancel it, but they had an outage somewhere and were overwhelmed with calls. So, Monday it is!

    Good for you. We downgraded our cable a year ago-we just get basic now and it $13.00 a month. We do have netflix and hulu plus to supplement if indeed.

    Hulu plus is kind of like ondemand/dvr if you are used to that.

    Good for you! Of the last 15 years, I only had cable for about 5 of them. While nice to have, I can get the same (almost ..) entertainment value from Netflix, and then sometimes tuning in to Hulu+ (or checking to see what's available on the free plan.)

    I have netflix, and a good library system for movies. I hadn't even thought about Hulu. Thanks for the tips guys!
