Just trying to find other options here, I currently have Dish Network and the fees are killing me. I currently pay $60 for my basic package(Top250 w/ locals), $20 for HD ultimate and another $15 for HBO. Throw on the DVR fee, equipment maintenance and sales tax its $94 a month. That seems insane for decent monthly TV service but I may be wrong. Lots of good HD content but I really want to dish HBO, I think Showtime is the way to go even for boxing at this point. Any more economical ways out there without sacrificing much?

My company currently pays for my high speed, but they gave us wireless air cards from VZW, so now they will no longer reimburse us. I started trying to see how much it would cost me to combine services. Currently I pay 56 bucks for basic cable/highspeed int, 57 for DTV, and 33 for AT&T phone for a total of 146. If I combine everything thru cox it would be the same price, but I would lose some of the DTV channels (and not gain any) as well as have to pay all the installation fees. If I went thru AT&T it would be about 10 bucks cheaper a month since we also have the cell thru them, but the high speed would go from currently 7 Meg with cox to 1.5 with At&t, so we'll just stay where we're at.

It gets much tougher to figure out the "best" deal when you bring in the bundling of telco and mobile fees. I pay another $160 a month for land line, 2 mobiles and at&t dsl (6.0 mb).

Is there some reason you can't buy a router? They have modem/wireless router gateway combos that go for about 3 months rent that you're paying them..

I pay about $150 for digital cable with an HD DVR, high speed internet and unlimited phone service..

60 a month for one DVR box and one regular box through Directv, no HD service though, *** 15 per room a month for that.

I get my phone and internet for 60 combined.

Cox HD channels, cablecard, digital channels all except for a few pay channels, and high speed internet. $120 per month. Free standard cable to three other rooms as well.

About to kill HBO since I never watch it. Rent through Apple TV instead. Will lower bill another $12.
