I'm just wondering what everyone uses for their content these days

Cable?
Streaming services?
Just antenna?
Nothing?

I just cancelled cable earlier this year and it's been an easy switch.

Right now I'm using an antenna for abc/cbs/nbc/fox/cbs and it works great. Then i have hulu with showtime, and hbo. For NBA basketball/soccer, I'll be getting Sling during the season now that they have a Fox Sports package.

I've found that i'm not even watching that much hulu (don't really have the time after i watch my showtime/hbo shows). I mean it's nice throwing on an ep of hey arnold on occasion, but just don't know if that's worth $12 a month.

J/W what everyone else is doing/experiences with cable cutting or if cable is still a must for you. I'm just trying to lean out as much as possible to only get what i'm going to use.

Netflix + Amazon Prime

My parents have cable so I use their login info whenever I need to see ESPN or Fox Sports (using the Roku/TV app)

Comcast, I think it's called Blast?

I pay $120 a mo on average. Supposed to have 75 Mbps but I've never had it over 33 when I've checked it. The cable and Internet are ALWAYS going out, it's absolutely the worst internet and cable I've ever had

My wife watches a ton of tv so we have Directv and netflix, since we have AT&T for our cellphones, they gave us a deal to merge our bills and it's gonna save us like $70 a month for the entirety of the 2 year contract and we get Sunday Ticket for free for the first year, pretty sweet deal honestly. We were able to get 2 new smartphones and switch to unlimited data and basically break even on the monthly costs.

Live in an apartment complex that only has Charter. Which is terrible, because Charter is absolutely the worst service I've ever had. Half the channels rarely work, internet is iffy at times, and we were paying like $150 a month for cable and internet. Recently dropped the cable after they once again raised the price (was going to end up paying like $130-140 a month just for cable) and moved to PlayStation Vue. $35 a month with no contract, has almost every major channel with DVR. If you have decent internet, I would strongly recommend it. Just wish I had made the change earlier.

I have 75mbps internet that they bundled in basic (non-HD) cable, ESPN, HBO and a few other things for free. I can use the apps on my AppleTV to get most of what I care about watching live or on back viewing in HD.

As for paid streaming services,
I use Netflix. Worth every penny.
I have the WWE Network, but really only use it for PPVs.
I have Amazon Prime, but it's extremely rare that I find something on there I want to see that isn't on Netflix.
I let my Hulu lapse. Just wasn't worth it. The limited value over what the apps and Comcast login offer + having repetitive ads makes it not worth the price.

Total with Internet and all services, I'm paying about $115 a month.

Antenna, Hulu, Netflix. I also have an amazon prime account but tbh rarely watch anything on it. Most things that I actually want to watch are also on either Hulu or Netflix.

Fios 75/75 internet
Full digital cable + Shotime and Cinemax

Total fios bill: ~$190/mo

Then we also have Netflix and Amazon Prime (we dont use it for TV purposes but I suppose we could).

My wife and I (mostly her) watch a lot of different shows and so while we could probably save some money by going a different way, it's simply easier this way for us.

Antenna, Hulu, use my brother's Prime account, and Sling because I forgot to cancel the free trial.

I have cable, Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu. Probably don't need all that. Basically never use Hulu. But whatever.
