Cut the cord

Recommended Posts

I cut the cord ....fuck directv and fuck their bills. I've tried before and failed but hopefully this time is for good.

So I am left with my dvd player and my laptop.

I am starting the first season of The West Wing which was the show that originally got me interested in politics....I just love it.

I am ready to ditch satalite myself. One more fuck up from them and I'm breaking the contract.

Soon...

Soon...

Mine was 175$  and the cunts fucked my on charging me for another season of NHL Season Ticket when I went online and unsubscribed from it. They claim you can only end renewal by phone , not online. I was tired of fucking fighting about it so I paid another 129$ or some shit over 4 months. Fuck them and fuck AT&T while I'm at it. I'm switching to verizon soon enough as well

Look at Playstation Vue, looks pretty good and reasonable. 

 

I'm at $250 a month but work pays for most of it, looking at PS to save a little money.

I could buy another receiver and have my dad get an access card for it. I may do that

Yep...gonna be looking into some options soon.  Don't watch much tv in the summer so it's a good time to try out some of these other services.  Fucking cable bill has almost doubled on me in four years.  And there still isn't shit on so.................
