Cable bill has quietly crept up to $258.44 base (not including the fees and taxes) for 1 TV with DVR and 1Gb internet with modem rental. I am done and serious about cutting. Wish I had Fidium in my area, or an alternative like it. I don't want to get FiOS or use the other cable company in Boston. And I don't want to goto t-Mobile's horrible offering. Ugh...
Yeah, I agree, and that's pre- all the taxes, and fees, and whatnot, I bet it's close to $300.
Though I guess, what, like $100 is the internet + equipment?
I'll have to sit down and see what we're actually spending, I believe we have paid subs for:
Amazon Prime too, but that's sort of "bundled".
Disney is actually free, I keep getting 6 month offers, our current is about to end but I have another one queued up. HBOMAX we got the yearly rate plus a discount through AMEX so like ~$10/month, AMC and Paramount both the annual discounts, like $7-ish/month I believe.
The great thing about streaming services is there's always a discount, or even a freebie, and you can always just activate for a month, and then shut it down, and that's with just a few clicks, no CS rep, no hassle.
Plus, if you use a common "box", you can get a nice unified experience across all TVs, like we do with AppleTVs (vs. a cable company's crappy STB).
