Okay let’s admit it. We’re TV addicts.
The average American watches 5 hours of TV per day, according to a report from Nielsen. Five hours a day! That’s a lot of TV watching. But that’s understandable, I mean how else are you going to keep up with the entire Kardashian family?
But just because we are addicted to TV doesn’t mean we have to pay over $100 a month to watch our favorite shows. And $100 is a low number. It is estimated that the average price of cable TV will hit $123 a month next year. That’s $1,476 a year!
I’m not suggesting you stop watching TV – I watch more TV than I’d like to admit – all I’m saying is that you should consider paying less for your services.
I haven’t had cable for over a year and I don’t miss it at all. True, I have to wait a day to watch my favorite shows, but as long as nobody ruins it by telling me what happens, one day is not that long of a wait. I’ve noticed that people nowadays are pretty good at not telling me what happened. They usually ask, “Oh man, did you see it last night?” No, and don’t say anything or I’ll karate chop you in your throat.
Anyways, below are a few ways you can replace cable and save money in the long run.
