I am so tired of Uverse adding charges on every month how can I eliminate these unnecessary chargesNovember 21, 2016 at 9:59 pm #70466
I wrote a column about this topic earlier this year:
We only have one television in the house connected to cable. We use an antenna for the rest of our televisions. (If we didn’t get a cable box with our internet connection, we’d drop it completely — we get great reception off the antenna.)
I also reviewed some antennas this summer — my daughter is only using an antenna at her apartment for her television signal. In this post, If you’re in my area, I detail the channels we get off our antenna in Chicagoland too.November 23, 2016 at 9:56 pm #70496
We cancelled out cable completely over a year ago and have never regretted it. We have four TVs and all are connected to a roof antenna. We also have a very small antenna for the internet service with a local provider that works great. The antenna install and everything cost around $900 but given that we were paying around $300 a month for full cable and internet, we were even on the install in 3 months. Internet can be as low as 24.95 a month but I work from home have streaming boxes (I highly recommend Roku) on all our tv’s so we pay 44.95 for internet because I need the top speeds and capacity. One of the Roku apps, SlingTV, has most cable channels live and for a small monthly fee you can get them. We also subscribe to Hulu every month which acts as our DVR. In total, we pay about $95 a month and we get everything we need in every room on every tv and we own it all. If you don’t want to spend the $95, you could pick a lower price and pay maybe around $50 a month for it all with a reduced number of channels. I also turn certain apps on and off anytime I want so I am not charged for very long. I only subscribe to Netflix twice a year for about a month because I have two shows on it that I like. Otherwise I don’t pay for it. Trust me this is the way to go if you want to save money. Oh lastly, once you subscribe to Hulu and SlingTV you can get all their shows on your phone or ipad as well no charge. Good luck.
