My wife and I ditched cable last year. We are no longer sitting on the couch every night switching channels and complaining that there's nothing to watch. We have an antenna and use Sling TV to watch some of our shows on AMC. I'm in the process of trying to get a better deal for just an Internet connection.
The funny thing about cable subscriptions is that just about everybody thinks they're paying too much, but very few people do something about it. Do some quick math on how much you pay annually for cable and it's easy to see why cable companies are doing so well.
There was something in the news recently about Congress looking into how cable providers actually have much lower rates than they advertise. It seems like from what I read: (http://www.cordcutingreport.com/2016/05 ... e-company/
), you really have to be serious about cancelling before you can get anywhere with them.
