  • We have cancelled our Cable subscription eeek

    Not sure how I feel about not having cable but we'll give it a try. The boys basically just watch the netflix on the rare occassion they do watch. Guess we'll have to try getting and US IP to get the US netflix (I hear it is better the the Canadian version). Anyone else cable free? Cheers, Lucius

    US netflix has much more content than Canadian netflix (my buddy in Vancouver and I often compare).

      I've thought about doing this several times before, including recently, but haven't been able to actually give it up. We watch Netflix mostly, but every time I consider cancelling cable, there is an excuse.

      Football season is here, after all.

        I killed cable over ten years ago because I was getting ****************ed around on my billing. Never renewed, tho i miss some content. Canadian Netflix sucks sphincter hard.
        The community here was awesome but the digs &amp; spirit of the place has been in decline ever since it became a business venture rather than a simple collective and this latest gong show really brought the chickens home to roost.<br><br>Necessity is the mother of invention, ergo: <a target="_blank" href="http://www.guitarampboard.com"><font color="#0000FF">www.guitarampboard.com</font></a>.<br><br>So long and thanks for all the fish, love izzy.<br><br>

            Cancelled cable about 6 months ago. I have a lot of supplemental stuff though. Netflix, hulu plus, amazon prime (not because of the video service, but included here anyway), and an antenna (free).

            I still save about 40 bucks a month over having cable, and i'm more than happy.

                  I haven't had cable in about 4 years. Since then I just use Netflix streaming and Vudu for pay-per-view movies. Works great for me but I was not a big TV watcher to begin with.

                        I have the basic Comcast that is like $14 a month and gets you the main 4 networks (fox, ABC, NBC, CSB) It's basically there for local news and football. Almost all of our other TV watching is Netflix.

                        I hate cable companies.

                            My dad forgot to pay the cable bill back in 2002 and then decided that 'you kids watch too much TV anyways', so I've been without it since. There's still a couple of channels you can pick up with the old-fashioned bunny ears, so that covers most of my needs. Luckily I can watch hockey on Saturday nights (which does mean that you miss a fair number of games) and there's usually at least one NFL game on on Sundays. I don't really watch any other sports, so I'm covered.

                            For TV shows there are a myriad sites that may or may not host gigabytes of content.

                              I tried it for about a month. OTA Digital works fine, but, it doesn't static/snow like the old analog stuff - it either jitters (at best) or drops out completely (often)

                              After about a month of that, I decided to go back to some form of TV piped to the house - cheapest cable is local channels only that runs around $20/mo. Me, I'm paying around $190/mo for AT&T Uverse U450 + stuff like Palladia, and 18MB/sec internet...no phone service in that - I have T-Mobile for my and her cell at $65/mo (total) for that...
