As someone who got rid of cable years ago this is a no brainer for me. There are already plenty of services out there that can help you end the price gouging you're going through right now. In fact, there are so many that some, especially non tech savvy folks, find it a bit overwhelming and stay with cable for the sheer convenience of it. Nothing wrong with that IMO. It's just that as cable prices continue to rise and consumers are still ignored, I think eventually something will have to give. For the average consumer you'll have no choice. For plenty it already is. So say for example your current cable bill with internet is $129 - $150 a month. Here's a quick easy way to chop that down to less than $60 a month. 1) Get a Roku 3. (No monthly fees. 1 time cost of $99 that you'll make back in less than 2 months.) 2) Cancel your cable TV subscription and keep your high speed internet. (avg $29.99/month) 3) Get USTVNow. An internet live TV service. ($19/month) 4) Get Netflix ($7.99/month) Total Monthly Cost: $56.98 And you can now watch live TV, sports, etc, while also discovering what millions of Netflix subscribers have realized. That watching TV on your time when you want it ROCKS. All of that on your tiny little box called Roku.
