Well, kind of…
You see, when the wife called our provider to get rid of cable it was actually cheaper to just keep the “local package” rather than to just keep phone and internet. So we still have a bunch of channels, but cut about $30 a month off our bill.
We tried going fully sans cable and just streaming a few years ago, but it turned out to only save us a few dollars, and the addition of streaming services pretty much wiped out that savings. This plan seems like the perfect mix though. We’re not paying for a ton of content we don’t consume, but still getting local networks and a fair amount of cable, including household staples like CNN, HGTV, and NatGeo. (Yes, those might be the lamest networks ever to be excited about, but I accept my lameness and embrace it!)
Now we have the flexibility to add and drop premium streaming services as shows we watch go in and out of season, and make use of the services we already pay for, all for less money.
If you’re like us and frustrated by paying exorbitant amounts of money to your cable provider because you don’t feel like you’re getting your money’s worth then give it a shot!
What’s the worst that could happen?
