Yes, I am one of those who think that TV Cable is overrated and especially OVERPRICED.
Many may not agree with me on cable being overrated, but if you are like us and spend less than 4 hours (maybe even less) per week watching TV shows you will agree with me. We do not spend too much time in front of the TV watching shows or sports, but we love movies, that’s why we still have a TV. My hubby is an avid movie lover, actually we were going to the movie theater once a week before we had our bumblebee.
Unfortunately research companies show that the there are no high hopes for us to go back on cable too soon, because the cable bills are not going down, but on the contrary, they are saying that will go up.
We were paying 150$ per month and sometimes even more because we were passing our internet limit and all the other hidden fees.
My significant other got mad that every month there were extra fees added to our bill.
We cut the cable around 2 years ago and we do not regret it one bit. Our cable package had basic TV channels, limited internet and landline from which we mostly used the internet off course, we had a cell phone and we barely received a phone call every two weeks on our home phone (waste of money).
Hubby put to work his research skills and found a company that provides unlimited internet in our area. Our limited internet was 60$, and we pay the same amount now for high speed, unlimited internet.
Since cutting the cord, we saved around 1000$ per year.
