I thought I'd share my recent cord cutting story. Have had uverse for 2 1/2 years. Started out at 130 a month which was not bad. After a year it sky rockets to near 200. I called and they talked me into staying and assured me that my rate would only go up 4 bucks. Well, it didn't. Wasted hours on the phone with them over the past 4 months. Finally had a belly full and told them to turn it off. Charged me an ETF of 240. I wrote the CEO of AT&T and basically told him my plans were to short his stock because his game plan for keeping customers will soon come crashing down. :) Got a call back from one of his minions and they knocked 100 off if the ETF - so that takes some sting out of the disconnect. I will recover that in one month :) Switched to a tablo and 5 rokus in the house with Comcast cable for $50 a month with HBO included. So far so good. Would love to know how you guys are getting TNT on the roku. I imagine when football gets here I will try sling.tv. Reading reviews on sling right now are very mixed so I will wait for them to work bugs out plus I don't really watch baseball so no need to jump until the fall. Glad I found the group and look forward to learning more :)
If you're serious about canceling cable and are near a service center, go there. Make sure you have all their equipment. There's usually a long line so the rep won't bother trying to up-sale you.
