So here is the deal, the facts, the situation – the skinny….
I currently pay:
$105 ish for cable and TV on 2 TVs with 1 DVR.
I pay $8 per month for Netflix, $8 for Hulu and have Amazon Prime as well. Soon, I MAY pay $8 a month for Aereo – may…
So … for television entertainment I am paying $121-129.
Now, on 8/7 – Comcast (sucks) will do this LAME thing where they raise my rate and make me pay $160 for cable and internet. That will put me at $176-$184 a month for TV and internet.
I have to have internet… so that's $65.
TV cost current: $72-80
TV cost next month: $127-$135
(Way to reward your loyal customers).
I'm SERIOUSLY considering going to this plan:
Internet – $65
Hulu, Aero, Netflix, Amazon – $24
I will lose a few channels I like (ESPN, Spike, some others) but there is a mega ton of content online. Aereo gets me DVR, rewind, etc for football.
I would probably want another ROKU for $70 but that would be covered in 2 months of savings. If I spurge for a cable modem so I don't rent fromI will see profit in 5 months.
So what do you think? Am I missing anything? That's over $600 a YEAR!
Anybody else taken the plunge?
That sick/sad thing is – if I quit and come back, they will give me a better deal. I know they sayand but it really feels more like Comcast wants to make money and I don't want to spend it.
