Kind of took the challenge. I am with Time Warner. I had Cable / Phone / Internet package. I work from home, so I could not risk having internet and phone disconnected - so I could not play the "I want to cancel everything" card. I called and told them I wanted to cancel the Cable portion of my package because I watched most TV online. I was told that because of the package deal that I had, I would end up spending more on just internet and phone than I would by keeping all three and just downgrading my cable. I ended up dropping from Digital cable to a basic package and turned in my 2 digital cable boxes and shaved $50 off my bill. The best part... By downgrading, I did lose some channels that my kids watched (BBC, Teen Nick, etc...), but I still have access to all of those channels (in HD) with the TWC app on my Computer, iPad, Roku and Xbox. So basically, I am paying less, but by using those devices with the TWC app as my new "cable box", I have not lost anything.
It does include HD. So I do still get a benefit of having that app and not having to pay for an HD box from Time Warner. And, the local broadcast channels that I get with the Basic Cable package do come in HD without a box. So, I do end up with a pretty good mix.
