It's been awhile since I've done the math. But...
* Comcast internet: $59/mo
* HuluPlus: $8/mo
* NetFlix: $8/mo
My ongoing charge is about $76 a month. With cable I was paying about $180 a month. In fairness, we had most of the premium channel options.
Now, there are other things I had to pay for, but they aren't recurring charges:
* Amazon Prime is a yearly fee, plus if you watch non-prime movies (I don't very often) it's on a pay-per-view basis.
* PlayOn is a one-time charge. I think it was $29 at the time. It's a lifetime membership.
* Roku you just pay for the box.
* Plex, I paid $75 for a lifetime membership several years ago. I know it's more now, though.
I don't know what all this works out to.
