Getting Rid of Cable: Options Aplenty

It has become increasingly easy to get rid of cable these days through a combination of alternatives without losing much of the entertainment value. And when I say ‘cable’, you can lump in the satellite providers, DirectTV and DishNetwork, as well. High-priced paid subscription TV is the enemy here.

In fact, the lifetime cost of cable can be in the millions. Crazy? Yes.

Here are just a handful of crafty ways that I’ve heard others have used to replace the expensive monthly costs:

But….. I have not successfully done it yet myself.

And since this is a clever, creative, tech-savvy community, I’d love to hear stories from you on how you:

  1. Have been able to get rid of cable by using a combination of services, what that combination is, and how much it costs you.
  2. Have cut television entertainment completely cold turkey.
  3. Have been able to replace live television sports without spending even more money at the bar (this one, and this one alone has prevented me from cutting cable).
  4. Plan on using GoogleTV in the mix, based on what you know about it.
