I’m not talking about us. Goodness no! Having spent most of my life WITHOUT cable, I’m not ready to make the switch back. Not yet anyway.
ABC News recently had an interesting article titled Cancel Your Cable and Still Watch Great TV. The article describes how one family uses the Internet, an antenna and a DVD player to as a replacement for their cable system. It looks like it could work.
Two of my relatives have already gone this route. Both seem to be happy with their TV choices and they’re VERY happy to not have a monthly cable TV bill.
Right now I’m paying about $50 a month for our satellite TV. In about 6 months the signing bonus we’re getting will run out and the price will jump to about $70 a month. When that time comes it’s nice to know that I have options.
