$5 extra would definitely be worth it to me. In my case its about $45 extra to get what Im getting from cable though.
The only thing Im really gonna hate not having is TBS HD for the baseball playoffs and NFL Network in HD. Everything else I can really do without. I watch sports, movies, and a small amount of network TV, so all those other channels are pretty much useless to me.
Not that I wouldnt love to have them for channel surfing purposes, but for $45 extra its pretty much not an option, just on principle.
