We cancelled our cable a few months ago, was like $180/m ! We kept our TWC Internet, $56, and use Netflix and Hulu Plus. Actually, the best thing I did was get a ROKU streamer, has NF, HULU already there. You use this little box with an HDMI cable and can stream 1080p quality programs, with no laptop. Plus this unit has an USB port you can plug a small hard drive into to watch movies you have downloaded.
I'm with you, cable is gone, we can access all of the shows we need, and pay $15/ for netflix and Hulu!
