TV Channels and cost.

Postby Bsuds » Oct 9th, 2017, 3:47 pm

I did a print out of the TV channels we are paying for. There are 107 channels in our package for $87 per month.
We watch 25-30 of them so I though I could save some money by reducing the "packages" we pay for.
I talked to our provider and I can reduce the channels but to keep what we watch the cost is the same!

The kicker is keeping the movie channels which my son watches. If it wasn't for that I could reduce it by $20.

Oh well I tried. I sure wish we could just pick the channels we want but they would just charge us more for it anyway.

Couldn't agree more, drives me crazy the way thye have channels in groups. To get 1 channel I like I have to pay for 20.... I bypass all movie channels and just download anything I want to watch..same with HBO shows.

They got it all figured out. I watch mainly 4 major networks, 2 news channel, AMC(for 1 series) , Netflix.
Of course i got to put up with 60+channels to get what i want, about $120 with internet.
If i can figure a way to just watch what i want online without fuss id go strictly internet+ Netflix.

What do u watch, may be able to direct you to a site for downloading your shows. Been doing it for over 20 years with no issues. I ether stream to a smart tv from PC or put them on a hard drive and plug the drive into the tv.
