Cancelling cable tv?

Jan 30, 2019 24 Comments

I am seriously considering cancelling my cable tv subscriptions. I have a package deal that includes tv and internet, but no one is watching tv in my household. We already have a Netflix and Youtube tv subscription. Do you think this is a good idea? How many of you still have cable tv, what are the benefits to keeping it? I feel like Netflix has all the shows my kids and my wife watch, and Youtube tv has all the sports that I need. What's the benefit of cable tv that I'm missing, let me know.

    Nothing. YouTube TV will take care of everything. Save the money on cable and get FOIS instead.

      I have a 100 or should I say I suppose to. Usually it’s like 50/80, way less in the evening

    Enter your address at https://antennaweb.org/ to find out which uhf antenna you need. You get all local channels for free in higher quality HD than Comcast. Totally legal. You can also get a usb dongle to save streams to your pc if you want to record and skip commercials (personally I use Kodi on win 10).

    5 years since we had cable.

    Buy a mohu HD TV antenna if you need to watch local games.

    Yes, cancel. Also, feel free to cancel your compuserve subscription, that is about as useful as cable TV.

    Haven't owned a tv for 10yrs. Basic internet + <streaming service> is usually enough, unless you like paying to watch ads at a rediculously loud level between shows, or buy ppv on top of $150-$200+ cable tv packages. Put that cash in a savings account for your kids instead.
