Before one cuts the cable, they have to ask themselves what else they would do to pass the time if they cut it. If it means going out more and spending more money to remain entertained, it could be a pennywise, pound-foolish decision. That said, for some folks most of what they are paying for (especially if they aren't sports fans) can be replicated by cutting the cable, ditching the dish and using streaming sources like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in addition to over-the-air ("free") TV. A combination of these would probably be less than $25 a month, and that assumes taking all three which might be overkill. We are really close to doing this now, but our Internet (small town DSL, really the only non-satellite option) isn't reliably fast enough. If it improves or we get other options that make it workable, the dish can't be ditched fast enough.#29
