I am also fed up with my monthly 130 dollar cable bill (it does however include internet). However, I have not made the switch mostly because I enjoy watching college football and basketball during the Fall and Winter. ESPN3 is a nice start, but some of the games I would want to watch are blacked out in my area.

Our promotional rate with AT&T runs out in October. We're paying $122 for cable and internet but the package we have now will go to $180. I'm going to cut the cable and budget $50 for high speed internet. We already have Amazon Prime and Google TV and will probably get a Roku and sign up for Hulu plus. Cable just isn't worth it anymore especially now that there are other options.

Correct, there are no ads on Netflix. Its well worth it, I looked at Hulu+ last night and couldn't convince myself it was worth it.

I've been looking at Hulu we have Netflix now but somebody told me that Hulu has TV shows where Netflix is mostly movies. I'm trying to find an alternative to cable for Bravo to watch Top Chef then I'd be happier with no cable.

They both seem to have the same movies and TV shows. I was having issues with my TV once connecting to Netflix and was able to switch to Hulu and find the same TV series. I guess I'll give it another month and see what happens.

I also rent movies through Redbox...$.99-1.29 2-3 times a month is cheaper than cable and the theater combined.

I don't rent movies I check them out for free at our library they are really good about getting them once they are released on DVD.

So on Hulu do you have Bravo channel or just limited Bravo shows? Do you have National Geographic channel?
