How many of you ladies have ditched cable?

We haven't yet. We still have 1.5 years on a 2 year contract. If I could afford the early termination fee, it would be gone, but right now, it's just easier to keep it *sigh*

We got a good deal on a smart tv and already have the netflix app and a few others but not hulu plus yet. I was thinking of getting that for cable tv shows that we would be missing, although there aren't many.

How much is it and how many channels do you get? Do you get local channels?

That was our situation too and now I just can't justify paying even more to keep it now that our 2 year contract is up.

Hulu plus to me sometime its a rip off. Sometimes you see shows that are not hulu plus but then come back next week and they are hulu plus so you have to pay to watch them. It just doesnt make sense!

With all of the other options out there (including netflix), I wouldn't continue the service, either.
