Re: Ridiculous

Yeah, a $150 cable package with HDDVR service / video on every TV in your home / wireless internet on multiple devices and unlimited nationwide home phone REALLY DOES SOUND EXPENSIVE at @ $5 per day for multiple people in an average household. For a family of 5 thats $1 per person for 24 hours of entertainment and service - wow what a back breaker. For something that you use everyday from the time you wake up until the time that you fall asleep tell me what a better value would be?

Ok, you cut corners and saved $10, $40 or $75 monthly - so what? Your not being ripped off, your just wanting todays technology for 1982 prices. How much in 1982 were your groceries? I'm sure they have not risen and are the same prices today. You wont stress about a single unlimited smartphone bill at $150 per month but the cable providers are the one's ripping you off? Give me a break and at least put some effort into your complaining.

Re: Ridiculous

$1,800 a year is a better way to look at it and to me its definitely not worth it, which has nothing to do with saving money alone. Crap like Bravo, TLC, and now even History and Discovery are not worth it anymore. Let alone the huge $$$ and every increasing fees being paid to the likes of ESPN.

I use my money in areas I value and I am not interested in funding overpaid athletes move balls around and certainly not towards those dimwitted housewives or Jersey idiocy.

$1800 a year for pay TV service???? Wow! That would be $150/month. Who pays that much for pay TV? The average monthly amount paid for pay TV service in this country is $78.63/month. From the article below:

"U.S. households now spend an average of $78.63 per month on multichannel video service -- up 7.2% from a year ago -- but there's still no evidence of widespread "cord cutting," according to a consumer survey conducted by Leichtman Research Group."
