Teh Cables
« on: April 15, 2021, 11:26:43 AM »
I know I axed this maybe a couple of years ago, but things in this industry seem to change almost monthly.  I'm still stroking that big check to Rectum (Spectrum) for 700 cable channels that I don't need.  Yes, it's idiotic to keep doing it, but every time I look around to see what's a better option, my head spins with all the stuff out there. Hulu and Fulu and Youtube and Fire Stix and Direct and....

I watch way too much TV but I'm pretty limited in what I actually focus on.  Yes, I want my local channel for the local news, weather ,sports etc.  As much as we all seem to hate em', I need my ESPN.  I seem to watch a lot of shows on Discovery, and ghey as it might seem, I love some cooking, or foodie shows like Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.  

Snagette and I are doing some serious budgeting these days, trying to cut a ton of the waste from our spending.  And roughly $250/mo. for 690 of the 700 channels we don't watch is one area we're looking to slash. 

Any suggestions?

Why don’t you just cut it all out. Between wtvy, wdhn, wjhg and your queer porn collection, you should stay well entertained.

I've been crunching those numbers lately myself and I haven't found an alternative that saves all that much.  None of the streaming services has everything we need.  I have to have the 3 Hallmark channels and the wife has to have all of her sports channels and the local channels as well.  We would have to subscribe to a minimum of 3 services and still pay Spectrum for the wifis.

Now I may be an idiot, but there is one thing I am not, sir, and that, sir, is an idiot.

If you're watching anything with Guy Donkey Sauce Fieri, you ain't a foodie.

I pay Cox $100/month for internet, $15 for Netflix, $12 for Hulu, $5 for CBS (SPORTS!), $15 for Disney +/ESPN + and $9 for Amazon.

I pirate the ESPNs via a friendly satellite consumer who has shared his login.

You can keep a wooden stake in your trunk
On the off-chance that the fairy tales ain't bunk
And Imma keep a bottle of that funk
To get motel parking lot, balcony crunk.

I get the HULU LIVE (no ads), Disney+, ESPN+ Bundle - 70 a month.......pretty much anything and everything you will need. Unless you are queer. And you are pretty close. 

And if you do the amazon primez, you already get Amazon Video for free which has a ton of content, just need to download the app on your Roku/RokuTV or appletv and login - Andy reruns, ton of movies, etc.

A friend of mine who gets Netflix came over back in the fall and logged in on my RokuTV and never logged back on so I use his account (unbeknownst to his sorry ass...haha sucker) to occasionally watch their stuff.

All of this above is wayyyyyyyy more than I need and it costs me: 72 a month / and 100 a year for Amazon Prime.

I don't count the internet cost because you are gonna get that regardless of what you are using to surf channels.

I have Dish. We have had it for years. It’s our favorite.
I’ll have to look and see how much we pay. I’m sure it’s too much. But I’m a rich white republican. So who cares!

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

All kidding aside, I owe you an apology. I am sorry. I would have attempted to treat you with at least some feigned respect had I known that you are white.
