Every couple years I look at cord cutting and I still haven't actually done it yet. Wanted to share my thoughts and ask folks if they are in the same spot or if there's something I'm missing.
I live in West Michigan and use AT&T Uverse for TV and Internet.? Currently the lowest tier TV package that includes sports channels is $115 and bundled unlimited internet is an extra $30. Total of $145 + tax.
For internet-only service, the choices are:
- $70 + tax for up to 1,024 GB streaming monthly
- $100 + tax for unlimited data streaming monthly which I would inevitably have to select
So cord cutting "saves" $45 + tax, but it's not really $45 because?I'd have to pay for additional hulu/amazon/sling services anyway to still stream sports channels.?So the net savings would be much less than $45. Possibly no savings at all I suspect. I may also have to buy hardware to be able to stream on my 6 yr old TV.
So for me it's not worth the (potential) (small) savings to go through the hassle of changing. So I'm keeping TV service for now along with unlimited internet for $145 plus tax.??
Change my mind?
