People think it will be cheaper to stream, and while I get the 'stick it to 'em' mentality it will likely cost the same, if not more. Just a quick breakdown on what it would cost monthly for the most-used streaming services (rounded to the nearest dollar) shows there's really not much savings to be had:
HBO- $15 (suggested)
Sports Package- $10 (I used MLB as reference, which last year was $120/season. Others are much higher.)
Just these alone and we're already up to $55/month ($45 no sports). Add a couple other sports packages or buy those must-see shows/movies from Amazon or ITunes and you've well exceeded what most basic cable packages cost. Now, you don't need to use all of the services above, but with the idea of "it's only X/month", those little X's can add up really quickly!
I'm a 'hooker' and a knitter. I guess that makes me bi-stitchual :). Crap I say
