QuestionCutting the cable PinmemberlittleGreenDude24-Apr-14 4:19 
Java | [Coffee] Just wanted to get the input of others...
 
I feel like I'm getting raked over the coals by my cable provider. I'm paying close to $100 per month, between the channel packages, remote rentals, cable box rentals, tax charges, etc.
 
When I grew up, tv was free, granted we only got 3 channels. Unless I could convince my little brother to stand behind the set and hold up some foil then we would get FOX as a 4th channel. Roll eyes | :rolleyes: Ah good times... but I digress.
 
I would really like to get rid of cable, but my son gets a look of fear on his face like I'm about to cut off his arm. WTF | :WTF:
 
We have an Xbox ONE and a 360, so we can stream Netflix to all tv's in the house. I feel the xbox is under utilized and we could access more media through it.
 
I'm turning this in to a book and I didn't mean to, so in the interest of brevity. Please share if you have an option other than cable? And do you still use the cable provider for internet connectivity. Are there any boxes/devices you recommend for internet tv? Any ideas are welcome? Smile | :)
