I have Teksavvy Cable internet now, along with a resold Bell phone line through teksavvy. Until now, my wife has been plenty happy with the analog channels on cable, which came through as Rogers did not install a filter ( thanks rogers ).
Now the analog channels are dropping like flies and she has me looking for alternatives. in the last 6 months or so, my house is within reach of Bell Fibe TV, so I can now get Fibe/Rogers Cable/Satellite, whichever is better/cheaper.
Calling bell, I have been offered home phone/internet/"select" TV for ~$100/month for 2 years. this is with unlimited 15/10 DSL, unlimited phone with voicemail/long distance/4 receivers.
Rogers is a tad more, but offers their VIP package and faster internet, also with unlimited phone, but at around $140/month for 6 months, then ~$170/month after. this is also for 4 receivers
I am currently paying for teksavvy 28/1 unlimited, along with home phone, with the unlimited long distance for $53, so ~$115/month.
I "might" be able to get some HD channels off the air with a good antenna on the roof, but looking south towards the CN tower, I look straight into a hill. I suppose I should actually try, though looking at what I am paying now, versus what I would be paying in a bundle, with tv included, the TV part does not appear to be a whole lot more, and in case of bell, I would be paying less ( though dropping my internet speed )
My wife was the same way. She was angry and miffed when I cancelled our cable. Now she is used to the Boxee box and any show she wants I get in a minute or two, now she is no longer angry and miffed but quite demanding lol.
I have huluplus, Netflix, stream from actual sites and of course terra bytes of shows and movies.
