Cutting the cord: Why I kicked my cable TV company to the curb | ZDNet

We looked into, of course, just cutting off all the premium channels and going with “Basic Cable”. But AT&T has their pricing model engineered as such that if you leave a premium plan, they a-la-carte charge you for basically everything, including HD service and the receiver boxes themselves. It turns out that if we had gone with “Basic Cable” we would have been within less than $30 a month of the all-inclusive [AT&T U450] plan. Look, I dig Nat Geo, Discovery Channel, The Science Channel and the History Channel, but not at those prices. And a lot of that stuff is now ending up on Netflix and other streaming services. – Jason Perlow, ZDNet http://ift.tt/1sCKyXF
