    we have digital cable (yes, it's a splurge) but we locked in for an incredible price about a year ago...now that time is almost up and we're trying to figure out how to proceed. we're considering subscribing to the Netflix 7.99 thing where you can stream shows onto your TV through the Wii. i...

    I have been complaining about the price of our cable bill for years. I just don't understand paying someone $120 a month for a bunch of things I don't even watch, and watching hubby channel surf for 20 min. or more trying to find something to watch and then end up watching something we have...

    On Monday I spoke with a rep from the cable company and she gave me a $20.00 discount...which I was happy with until I realized even with the discount I would be paying $16.89 more per month than I was last year. So, today I called again and got another discount :). Now, we will be paying...

    We need to make drastic cuts to our budget. :weeping: Thankfully, there is a LOT of room for improvement! At the end of January, our contract is up with Verizon Fios. We have the triple package: cable/internet/land line. I need the internet and land line, but I'm going to check out other...

    When the digital converter box issue was in the news, I didn't pay any attention since we had cable. Now we are about to cancel our service and I'm wondering if we can get free tv? Our television is one of the new flat screen HD things, so I'm not sure how that works. We don't have a digital...

    Ok, well I'm one step closer to canceling my cable... I signed up for a free trial for Netflix ($8/ mo) that works with the WII and gives us free movies and older TV shows on our TV! I love it! It's so easy to use! We have a $50 entertainment budget so I think $8 will be ok. We are currently...

    Right now we owe comcast like $500. DH worked out a plan with them to pay $219 this week, and the rest in two weeks. I thought great, we can still keep our cable. Then I wrote it down on paper. This week: Comcast Next week: Double Car Payment (DH's pay is JUST enough for this but he is banking...

    It just seemed like a waste of money anyway. I am keeping my internet for awhile since I will be signing up for college soon hopefully.

    I noticed this article on MSN today. 800,000 Cut Cable It seems that many Americans are wising up and using things like Hulu and Netflix to cut out cable. We haven't made the leap yet, but we are going to when Zac deploys.

    Probably the wrong forum to post this but....... Yesterday evening I got a call fromt eh cable company offering me a deal. If I switched over my phone, fax and internet to them they would reduce my total cost by about $20.00 a month. So I then called the phone company to make sure I didn't...

    we just dont watch enough cable to justify having it.If i could get rid of the internet and phone we would but cant.. Since we own our own buisness we need the house phone, the internet hubby does stuff for his clocks and ordering. so that will save $50 + 3 converter boxes at $6.00 each so will...

    Well, I was listening to the news last night. They had a segment with a woman talking about how she was having difficulty with the bills. She pays $110 for cable. Her reasoning was that it was her only form of entertainment. And she does have internet. However she is unable to pay her rent...

    I am one of the first to admit that television, video games, the Internet, and cell phones add fun and convenience to our lives. But this past April I took the challenge presented by TVTurnOff.org and shut the television off for the week. For good measure, I also shut off the video games, and...

    It really bugs me that other people have to make my 7 yr old child feel as if she is deprived of something because we don't have cable. Several months ago we turned off the cable because we realized that we were paying 60 dollars a month just so my kids could watch Sponge BOB! All the channels...
  17. Question and Answer
    I'm struggling with whether to downscale my current cable account. For a full year, I had a great promo which significantly discounted the cost for digital preferred service (this package that I'm referring to does NOT include any of the premium channels like HBO). . Now that the promo has ended...

    I don’t know why people don’t like to call the different companies that give them services to try and get a better price, but there are a lot of people out there. My mom is one of them. I wrote last September that we shaved my mom’s cable bill from $65 to $39.95 a month last September. After...

    We have cable TV. I'm not a huge fan of TV, but Hubby likes his shows and it's handy for watching news, and we can afford it. So this isn't a thread about cutting corners and getting rid of cable, or on the evils of TV. (Not that I would disagree with you, but that's another thread!) Our...
