Cut the Cable

January 6, 2015: Cut the Cable

Cable costs bringing you down? I’ll show you how easy it is to cut the cable today!

It’s no surprise that cable is expensive: on average, cable customers spend $120 a month according to consumer studies, but that total can climb upwards of $1000 per month based on channels and equipment.

So how can you watch your favorite shows AND save money? It’s easy these days!

There’s no shortage of programming you can watch online. And for what you spend a month in cable, you can spend one time on devices like Apple TV and stream your favorite shows and movies.

And make sure to check out HDTV antenna’s like Mohu. Not only are they un-obstrusive and easy to use, you can pick one up for under $25.

Of course, sports can be difficult to watch live without cable, but that might be the perfect time to go to a friend’s house; after all, is better to watch your home team and cheer with friends anyway!


The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.
