« When It's Time for a Watch Obsessive to Slow Down | Main | Dear Costco, Promise You’ll Never Leave Us »

May 13, 2016



Two years ago, I moved from the east coast of the US to the southwest. I went from Time Warner Cable to Comcast, which are the absolute lowest of the lows regarding customer relations and satisfaction. In the move, I decided to "cut the cord" and only employed Comcast for internet service, eschewing cable TV services altogether.

I couldn't be happier. My monthly cable/internet bill was cut in half and my internet speed increased a full order of magnitude. I bought a $30 flat antenna for my TV and pull in all the major networks with a crystal clear picture. I used Amazon Prime and Netflix subscriptions for streaming and binge watching and if I'm interested, I will purchase a series for about $20. I still come out way ahead and have saved thousands already. Of course, that was plowed into watches (damn you, Jeff!), but hey -- the noose of cable TV subscription is gone from my neck and I am delighted.


As soon as my contract ends next year, I'm going to follow your lead, Lee.
