Re: Alternative = "OFF" button

Was on TWC paying $140+ for 7mbps cable/mid-range package and two boxes. Stepped down to $75 with one cable box, basic cable with about 40 "free" HD - no internet. Got Clearwire (10-15Mbps) with Netflix/Hulu/Playon, dumped cable entirely and now pay about $50/month. Two friends saw my setup asking me to set them up - they are now officially cord cutters.

I can afford cable but can't justify paying $75/month when only interested in about 4 channels. I do miss Disc/NatGeo/History but just not worth it (many shows end up on Hulu or DVD rentals eventually). I'd go back to cable if they could figure out how to bundle just the channels I'm interested in at lower price.


I was looking at channel packages for both dish providers awhile back, you have to have the top teir HD package and/or SD channel package to get Natgeo.
Then this week i saw that Natgeo is on a satellite broadcast in the clear!! I was pissed! with the right dish a guy can get it free! then I found that history channel is in-the-clear too! dish/cable are robbers!
