What are you paying for cable or satellite? If you're like many families, it's now close to or exceeding $100 a month. So you may be interested in meeting some people who now watch many network and cable shows for almost nothing. Lower your bill to less than $10 a month.
Have you seen your cable TV bill lately? If it includes Internet service and a DVR, as many people have, you are probably paying more than $100 a month. So we decided to look into some of the newest ways to reduce that rising bill.
Kelli Haller loves watching TV, but like so many of us, hates that monthly cable bill that was $60 a month, then $75 and now almost $100.
"It's expensive to live on your own, and [pay for] gas and everything else," said Haller. "Those bills add up quite a bit."
So like a growing number of young professionals, she now watches her favorite shows via an antenna, the Internet and a service called Hulu.
"I'm able to watch ABC, NBC those shows," Haller said. "I'm able to watch them whenever I want, instead of when it's showing on TV."
Amanda Fischer has also given up her expensive monthly bill, and now watches network shows and movies on her laptop.
"I pay $7.99 a month for Netflix, and with Hulu, I just use the free options they have," Fischer said.
Her $8 a month Netflix subscription gives her hundreds of movies and many network shows.
"There's a ton of them. They just started their own original series, 'House of Cards,'" said Fischer.
