Cable costs are slowly creeping up- it seems like every bill is a little more expensive than the last one. However, unlike water and electric, cable is not a necessity. Therefore, it’s a little easier to navigate through providers to get the best price: they also seem to be more flexible than other services with pricing. Most are willing to negotiate with you if you call them. Plus, there are other options like online TV services, such as Netflix and Hulu. For more ways to save on your cable bill, check out this post at Thrifty Treasures for some helpful hints:
-Network sites: Many networks like CBS, Fox, Food Network and more offer the ability to watch full episodes online for FREE!
-Netflix and Hulu Plus are much cheaper than basic cable. Crackle is free, but has ads.
-HDMI cable: hook your computer up to the TV and watch away
-Call your cable company and tell them you are thinking of switching or cancelling services: they will usually work with you.
