  • $180, Comcast, includes internet, DVR, phone, 2 boxes, movie channels. I could live without it. On the weekend I can't find anything to watch. We've been thinking about cutting back and try Direct T.V

  • Zero. We don't have cable, it's simply a luxury we can't afford. Yep, guess I can live without it!

  • We don't have cable. But we have Netflix and a blu-ray so we can hook laptop up to blu-ray and watch movies from Netflix on TV. LO's are watching Rugrats right now via Netflix.

  • Ours is $171.51 and it includes our cable, DVR, home phone, and internet service. We have to have internet service because that's how all of my husband's work is assigned and processed. I suppose we don't really need the home phone, and we don't really use it that much. We wouldn't die without the TV, but I also wouldn't be willing to give it up.

  • I have not had cable in about 12 years.

    We've lived just fine without it.. lol

    These days. Everything we watch is either streamed through the X360 via netflix or Zune rentals, dvd's (netflix/library) or streamed through one of the computers in the house.

    We can't even catch a single channel on our tv.. LOL So we don't even watch "regular" tv.. Just streaming and dvd's..

  • I would have to pull our utility bill for the cable portion. We pay 260 a month that is our electric, gas, water, trash, sewage, cable and Internet bundled. We use a local company that services our small town. I could live without cable if we needed to it is a want not a need.
