Canceled Cable

August 7th, 2019 at 06:01 am

Now that the SO is gone, I wasted no time and canceled the cable 📺 . I’ve already had been billed for August, and according to them, the account had to be closed at end of billing cycle. Honestly I didn’t feel like arguing, I’d been on hold for over a hour so I said okay.

We use to pay about $200 a month, that’s $2400 a year and $1200 a piece a year, ridiculous. Honestly I only watched A&E, MSNBC and once in a while Hallmark, all in all it’s not worth it. He would never cancel, and I always felt forced to pay for something I didn’t want.

I’ll admit I was nervous about canceling but thought, this is ridiculous. Amazon Prime is $120 for a year, and I’m spending $1200. Crazy. I did keep the internet which is also expensive. I’m thinking about getting a MetroPCS phone, with unlimited data, and free WiFi for about $30 a month vs paying the $70 I’m paying now.

I just realized that with Fetch I have $50 in gift cards, I can use this towards my Amazon purchase.

    Great job!! Make sure to save that money or send to debt! You could also buy a digital antenna to get the local stations. I bought one on Amazon for less than $25. And check

    here. for the reception maps for your area. Hulu is $5.99 a month, they have more expensive plans. I'd check reviews on the WiFi with Metro PCS,to make sure it's good for streaming content.

    Nice!! Think of the extra time you'll have now too to do something productive. When we cut the cord many years ago, I was surprised by how much time I had been wasting without really thinking about it.

    You can watch the news on YouTube. All the major news channels have YouTube channels.

    Cutting cable is a great way to save money. Amazon Prime and YouTube are my friends. :-)

    Also, if you get a
    ROKU or Fire Stick, which are not terribly expensive, you get lots of FREE movies and other shows.

    We don't currently subscribe to a streaming service, but we have in the past. The one big thing I like about it is you don't have to watch at a certain time unlike with cable. If you have to work a night shift for your job, you don't miss your favorite show. Woo-hoo! Also, I I think the streaming services are cheaper for the most part and are also portable and can be watched on a tablet or phone. We use the tubi service on our playstation, which so happens to be free, but the movies and tv shows are not the really current stuff. They are typically a little older.
