I have watched absolutely everything worth watching on Netflix. Plus I am getting a great deal. I currently pay $54/mo for internet (If I call I could get it back down to promo price of $40/mo)

But... $65 for internet (20 instead of 25Mbps, BFD) plus tv, with whole home DVR (might pick up another TV just cause I can tongue) plus a few other goodies... AND... a $175 Amex prepaid giftcard. I wanted a new beauty dish... this gets me tv AND I get a new toy!

cancel your cable (again) and get a roku2...you can subscribe to a bunch of free and paid movie channels and still be less than what your cable bill will charge you minus the internet.  since i bought one of those roku boxes i haven't looked back.

We have one. It's good, but not enough variety. And my cable bill is $30, that's like 5 movies on Roku, unless you want to watch Megashark vs Giant Octopus.
