Anyone here cancel cable?

Recommended Posts

What are the best options to get "a la carte" TV that includes all sports channels?  The Mets, Jets, and NY Rangers are my teams.

I still have cable but I only keep it for sports, good question. I don’t get all Jets games bc I’m in CT, I’ll PM you a free app you can watch all games. I don’t want to promote it too much in public forum bc I don’t know if it’s under the radar and would get squashed if became too popular

Haven’t had cable since I moved to Mexico. I use that nflbite site with decent results for games.

Get ATT's DIRECTV, and get a swearheart deal for the first 12 months and use the prepaid visa (I got 3 cards $125, $100, and $25 < last one was for signing up online.) income for something you need to buy, and use that money you saved towards breaking the contract at the end of the 12th month period. Usually $20 per month for the remainder 12 months, which is $240  to break contract. Wait 30 days using Sling or something else that can get you by for 30 days and rejoin DIRECTV for another sweetheart deal as a "new" customer.

Get yourself a fire stick, you can download Pluto TV for free cable channels and you can also get your sports from Amazon Prime, ESPN or any sports service outlet via App Store. You’ll never go back and it’s fairly cheap to do this. Cable services will soon be as needless as Blockbuster became when streaming services came into the picture years ago.

I have the same question as I'm in the middle of moving. Unfortunately everybody has such a different set up, the options are endless. I don't even know where to start LOL

We cut the cord quite a few years ago here in TN. We like Roku -- our current living room TV has it built in. We get all the locals on antenna, for free.  We've been using Sling as a cable replacement for while (that's where I get ESPN, the wife gets AMC). For a long time it was just $19.99 per month for the package we liked, but they've raised it twice recently and do offer additional channels for $.  My wife also likes Hulu, though I don't.  And, of course, Netflix and Amazon (also for the free Prime shipping).

 I'd cut even further back, and maybe drop Sling now, if it weren't for my wife...

Yeah, he's probably got something more than a mere Fire Stick in mind...

IPTV is the way to go. Cancel cable and Directv service immediately.

I have bare bones xfinity for the WiFi and a fire stick.  I think musk is working on satellite WiFi, that could kill cable for sure

There are plenty of them. I pay $20 a month and have over 5000 channels. Every single sports package, 200 porn channels, every movie channel, etc. 5000 channels

I have DirecTV with 3 hd receivers, whole-home DVR and pay within 10 bucks of every cord cutter I've discussed the options with.  Even pay less than a few.  If you are willing to play the game with DirecTV once a year, you can get good prices.

I won't post the link but SPORTSSURGE

I have Cable TV too but that's where I watch my Jets and Knicks games living down here in Florida (used to have NFL Season Ticket through Direct TV for many of years before finding out about Sportssurge). 

It's 100% HD/Quality too and you can watch anything from NFL/NCAA Football, NBA/NCAA basketball, I'm not sure but I think MLB baseball too and also PPV for both Boxing/UFC heck tonight I'll be watching Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr on their Boxing Link!

I'm in Canada. Havent had cable for years.

 

For NFL I pick up DAZN streaming service, it's basically sunday ticket and includes red zone. Not sure if they operate everywhere but it's great.

I have Hulu Live. We had cable in our apartment, but were set on cutting the cord only because the cable company were we moved to is the absolute worse. 

We have all the channels we wanted, plus all our sports. Between the Hulu and the Internet were still saving $20 a month. Not a lot, but something. 

It also works because the house we moved was recently renovated, but WASNT wired for cable to the bedroom, living room or finished basement, so the Hulu avoids us having to tear into the new walls to run the cable.

FiOS only costs me $300 a month, not sure what this cord-cutting fuss is all about.

Switched from sling to YouTube tv a couple of months ago. YouTube tv is really good. $50 a month.

I have YTTV and they raised their prices to $65 a month. I love the unlimited DVR and access across every device but that was a pretty steep price raise. Wondering if I should drop it and move onto something else.

I think he meant $30. He has a 1996 BMW. He cannot afford $300 on cable.
