After months (OK, years) of fuming at my cable bill, asking myself why I'm paying $92 a month for cable TV (with NO premium channels) when I hardly watch anything but the Science Channel & NatGeo anymore, I finally broke out of my inertia & pulled the plug.
Fortunately, digital antennas have improved to the point that OTA HD channel reception is as good as cable or dish, at least here.
We have 4 TV's in the house (2 of which were old CRT behemoths until earlier this year). I now have 3 of them on $30 RCA flat-box antennas and one on a $13 RCA rabbit ear version, all with great reception. I bought 2 Apple TV's and a Netflix subscription.
Old = $1100 a year (it's always frosted me they charge monthly rent for the remotes, FCOL).
New = $350 one time cost & $8 a month, $96 a year.
I think I like New. I'll add stuff a la carte for sports & series I really want to watch (like Hell on Wheels) & I'll be able to watch them on my schedule - don't even need a DVR.
Now to figure out what else to do with all that money I'm saving. After I finish kicking myself for not doing this long ago.
