We've never had cable or a dish, always the 2 or 3 over the airways channels we could get. Even with the choice of 2 channels to watch we had to put restrictions on our kids TV viewing. As a result they all enjoy reading. Do yourself a favour and cut the cord, save that 50 bucks a month.
- Why Cable?

If cable companies are truly worried about the number of people "cutting the cord" then maybe they should do something like let us FULLY design our own packages. If I only want to watch AMC, HBO, CBS, NBC, ABC, The Food network and HGTV I have to have the largest, most expensive package. Add in Phone/Internet/HD versions of the channels and your bill is now over $200 per month. Or I can buy Netflix for $7.99 a month. Wouldn't it be worth it to charge me $50.00/month for the above scenario instead of getting nothing from me?

Cost of living is increasing, salaries are not, and jobs are becoming more scarce all of the time. Cost of these services has risen to a point where they are no longer affordable. I had to cut mine. It was a decision between putting food on the table or watching fancy TV... I'll be cutting cell phones next because a comparable package to my current subscription will cost nearly triple when I am supposed to renew... Just can't afford these frills.
