We have Sling. It’s okay. Not the best, not the worst.

sarfin914 :  we looked into it to see if we could cut the cord, but once you added up all the various packages plus the internet cost it didn’t save us any money over our triple bundle. For the same price I wanted to keep the landline for emergencies now that we have a kid (when I was pregnant I had a recurring nightmare that the baby was in trouble and my cell phone was always dead). 

Have you called your provider to ask for a lower price? Or do you have another provider you could switch to? My limit for cable/internet is $140/month. If it goes above that I make my husband call and get it fixed or else I’m cutting the cord and he’s losing sports. He’s WAY better at getting deals than I am. Right now we’re locked into Fios at $115/month for 2 years and we have all the channels we wanted plus the fastest available internet speed.

We ditched cable about a year ago. We have Netflix, amazon prime and Hulu Live. We’re actually going to downgrade the Hulu live to Hulu without commercials- turns out we rarely watch live TV. My husband paid an extra 5 bucks a month for the CBS app so he could watch football live- but cancelled it after the Super Bowl. With our internet provider and those tree, I think we spend about 70 bucks a month. No complaints about the switch. If you’re really jonesing for something that isn’t on one of those- you can pay the app add on (usually an extra 4-5 bucks a month), binge your show and then cancel.

We have Hulu Live, we love it. We pretty much get any channel we want (you have to upgrade for premiums like HBO, though), plus a DVR for $40. We also have Netflix and Amazon Prime. Haven’t missed cable once since we dumped it!

We’ve had Sling at least a year. The best thing about it, in my opinion, is the on demand. They have sooooo many shows on demand on each channel. Even old shows. And if you miss an episode of something you don’t have to wait a day for it to be on demand, it’s generally on there right away after it airs. Besides that it’s nice to have a few cable channels to watch when there’s nothing on antenna tv.
