If it wasn't for live boxing and golf, I could cut the cord myself and be just fine.  Well, I could if I was the only one in the house.

 

IPTV for multiple boxes is still an issue for many of us in the more rural parts of the country.  We can get 12-15Mbps 'net service which could suffice for 2-3 HD video streams most of the time.  But bandwidth caps are here with the cable company though not with the DSL provider.  I have 12Mbps DSL service, but I'm at the far end of the distance allowed for that and usually get between 10 and 11.

 

So instead of 'justifying' sticking around, I chose to 'rationalize'!!   :)

 

 

 

 

Isn't 10Mbps DSL enough for 2 tv's?

 

I'm asking because if I upgrade, that's the only speed I can go to.

 

I'm looking real hard at IPTV and droping down my core package.

 

The Dish bill continues to increase, while losing channels I watch, and a month of Epix is not going to cut it.

 

Three channels of old repeats for 30 days doesn't ease the $60 a year rate increase.

I can't get cable, or OTA. Dish and DirecTV are my only options, unless I want to "cut the cord" and just use my Roku and my optical disc collection.
I have one 722, and one TV. I don't care about sports channels. I've watched the rates creep up while I feel what I get for my money has decreased.

With multisport add on that is not a good comparison, might as well add Directv sport pack for $12.99 which will bring price up to $163.98. And I'm a Directv sub.

 

The Premiere package includes the Sports pack, along with the other premium channels.

I just removed STARZ and Blockbuster to compensate.

I'm sure Dish is listening and concerned.  However, the content providers need to listen and they think they can keep charging higher and higher rates for their networks, which in turn raise cable & satellite costs.  More short term thinking on the part of corporations.
