    Has anybody cut the cable cord and dish or direct. Does anybody use anything else; Hulu, Amazon etc.

    Never had cable or dish at my house. Only time I have watched cable is while on vacation at a motel. Spend the whole evening switching from one boring show to another.

    Yep. I cut it in favor of netflix, hulu, and NHL gamecenter. I can still pick up locals on an antenna for football games and the news. The only thing I miss is the sports, but I just couldn't justify keeping cable for the weekends, when I have time to watch them.

    Jump, I've had directv for quite a few years, and every year I call them and tell them that since I'm such a loyal customer, they ought to give me the NFL games for free. They have the last 2 years. lol.

    I have Time Warner and no way that would work with them. They just don't care. I do get deals from T-mobile for being a long time customer though.

    DirectTV doesn't give anything away for free, especially the NFL Ticket.

    I discontinued my television service in April of 2012, keeping just the internet. Netflix and Youtube have proven themselves far more useful anyway.

    The problem is the internet providers are the same companies as TV providers. You don't save much by discontinuing the TV if you aren't paying for a bunch of the premium channels.

    I had a basic package with nothing special and it cut my bill in more than half. Pretty nuts.

    I pay like 250 for phone internet & tv. I have every channel I can get, fastest internet (like 110mbps), etc. It's a waste of money but life is short.
