You're what Seinfeld called the break even guy. No matter he does, he breaks even.

The Time Warner Bill that comes in the mail is almost 100 bucks just for basic cable and the cable modem. I used to get 5 bucks off for owning both, but then they stopped doing it a few years ago.

We really do not have enough sports channels though. I would not mind seeing an all womens sports channel and one non division 1A college sports network.

What I hate is the increase in price we have to go through each year for the Cable bill. I also hate the high cost the networks have to dish out so they can get the rights to air something like the NFL or NASCAR.

I think buying only the channels you want will work in the short run to lower the price, but in the end a few important smaller networks will 100% go under. Not a good idea.
