Sick of cable. Sick of paying for cable. Sick of the worthless shows on cable. Sick of entire swaths of channels on cable. Blockbuster‘s deal is fine — $20/month for 3 movies out at a time. For regular TV, the only shows worth watching are House, Lost, and Family Guy, and I’m going to get them over the air. I have to switch my Internet access to AT&T DSL first. Goodbye, cable!
Now, per month: $100 for cable. $40 month for cable Internet. $20 month for Blockbuster. ($160/month)
Later, per month: $0 for TV, $25 for AT&T DSL. $20 for Blockbuster. ($45/month)
Difference: $115/month. $1380/year. After-tax money, obviously.
