said by wookie:My car sits idle for 21 hours a day when I'm not commuting to and from work but yet I still make my $300/mo lease payments. Netflix and amazon prime won't replace local news reports when u get inclement weather or sandy like storms. To me that alone is worth keeping cable. Perhaps consider downgrading to a cheaper package.
My wife is already pushing cancelling cable in favor of Netflix/ Amazon Prime content, this is only going to seal the deal.
I love cable, but considering the amount of time it sits idle, its alot of cash.
