Cable ain’t cheap. And these days, it isn’t the only option. The average cable bill is $75 and is expected to grow by 5% every year. Are you watching $75 worth of cable television each month? (Netflix, Hulu and HBO Go don’t count.) Ask yourself these questions. If you answer "yes" to five or more, you'll probably save money cutting cable!
The internet has made the 6 PM News almost obsolete. If you get the majority of your news online, on Twitter or by word of mouth, cable may be unnecessary.
Sometimes ESPN’s talk-drama-crazy mix isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. If you just want to cut through the crap and watch a game, there are packages you can order. NFL Game Rewind runs for $69.99 a year ($5.83/mo), and you can get the NBA League Pass for $125 a year ($10.42/mo).
That means you won’t see them on regular, local cable! Get a League Pass and watch your team win (or lose …) every single time they play.
Do a little research. How much does your provider charge for internet alone? $30? Less? If the number makes your heart pitter-patter with happiness, maybe it’s time to cut cable.
