Since December 2012 our house has been cable free.
We have survived!
We haven't killed each other!
To save about $100/mo my husband and I decided to cut cable out of our house and use our Wii to watch streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. Here is the low down on costs and what you need to watch streaming TV on your television. Tomorrow I will break down devices that I use and subscription costs.
- I am able to keep the family relatively happy with out cable through internet streaming services.
- Our monthly costs have been reduced by over $100/month
- If cable channels like TNT and HBO do not start offering their programing a la carte soon, then I will get cable again - just so I can see some of my favorite shows (Rizolli & Isles, Major Crimes, Perception, Game of Thrones, and True Blood) but I won't have a problem shutting it back down when those series are not on.
