How big is your cable package?

We have the basic, local channels. I think about 13 stations for about $10 a month through whatever provider our local utility company contracts with.

  • We have the next to smallest TV package, the higher speed internet and phone service. We pay $130 a month for all of it - and our ATT bills for phone and internet only were $150 a month.

  • We just cut cable. We now stream netflix over the TV for 8 dollars a month. Cable company kept on raising prices, and we were done.

  • We don't use cable. Instead we subscribe to Netflix for $8/mo and can watch through our 360. We use Hulu for current tv shows.

  • I had a bigger package when my sister stayed with us because she likes to watch Lifetime and stuff...that was only $25-$30 for 60 or 70 channels but we just didn't watch it enough to keep it once she found her own place.

  • We have Dish Network and have the highest package possible only because we dont have to pay for it but we are switching to another company and will have to pay for that one.

  • We have the "basic" package as well. It's supposed to be 22 channels but it's not even close. $12 a month.
