    Its not hard to fall behind, trust me. New devices are coming out every month it seams that are making it more and more easy to ditch cable. DirectTV Now came out first week of December last year and still in its infancy stage. Like I said above, I'm locked in at $35 a month for 100 channels. That promo is no longer offered tho. You can sign up for free trials of all these different streaming services if you want to see what they have to offer. From there you can calculat how much of a savings you will have based on the "packages" they offer. To some its a huge adjustment and to others its none at all. Just depends on your individual viewing habits and what shows you watch and when.

    I've been thinking about doing this...I mostly use my Netflix & Hulu subscriptions. The only thing I use actual cable for is The Walking Dead on Sunday nights. UGH I don't think there is any way around that....unless I wait for the whole season to end & then watch it once it moves over to Netflix. I couldn't POSSIBLY wait that long though!!!

    Wes...Let me know how it goes please. I have really been considering getting rid of cable and all the gouging by the carriers. Almost souns like an Earl Scheib commercial..."We'll hook you up for $79.95."

    Roku say 'Don't fight girl in strawberry patch or you will have a$$ in one big jam. Ro....Nagasaki.

    So far its been good and I am paying $44 for tv service and should be around $60 for internet service. My cable bill came from last month but was pro-rated charging me for cable and equipment for part of the month. I will know what it will really be next month. I just received an email last week from the cable provider offering me tv, internet, and phone for 29 each but I know I would have to pay for cable boxes at $9.99 a piece plus taxes and would be back to $120+ per month.

    I am sure people are getting the same or better than I am for cheaper but I really haven't put the time to research for cheaper services. Most the guys I have talked to at work have Amazon Firesticks which have been jailbroken and are supposedly watching any tv they want for free. I don't feel like getting caught doing that so I will just keep paying.
