Last month, I reached my boiling point on the cable bill. Excluding high speed Internet service, my Time Warner cable bill had just passed $150 a month. An HBO / Showtime subscription, the occasional movie rental, DVR service; all the extra services add up quickly. Even the basic services, like HD channels ($5 a month) or an extra HD cable box for another TV in the house ($10 a month), were ridiculously priced. If I continued down this path, I'd be on track to spend over $1800 a year for a handful of channels that I actually watched!
