Solution to this &#^#&ing TV Bill!

Our cable TV is too expensive for what we use, and it just went up. We need good Internet for work and school, but we only watch a few channels these days. I was researching options. Mostly ATT, Dish TV, Directv and Comcast are in our area. I found a site that finds service with TV channels you watch: www.10channels.com. It found a TV/Internet combo that would saves us $55/month with a switch to Direct.

There's also a good option for ATT. I am going to call the number and make the change. Just wondering if any of you have Directv or ATT Internet? Any advice is helpful!

  • Whenever my rates go up - I'm with Comcast - I call the "discontinue service" line and tell them their rates are way too high for me. Then they review my package and ALWAYS give me a better deal - usually about $20 less than what I was paying before. This strategy should work for most any service provider. Good luck!

    Go away spammer. Mark unneighborly.

  • Gloria B South Austin

    I have ATT internet. Speed is not comparable to Comcast, but it costs less and I can live with that!
