I was spending close to $150 a month to get programming from a mid-tier satellite package to four TVs. Now I spend $0 a month. I get so excited whenever I think about this that a little pee comes out.

How I Cut the Cord with Tablo - by Michelle 'The Cord Cutting Baby Boomer'

Why did you cut the cord? How much money are you saving each month?

The average cost of a mid-range cable TV package is between $70-$100 a month. And that’s just for content, not the rental of hardware or extra fees your provider might charge.
