Who Needs Cable When You Have a Roku?

About 3 years ago, my husband came to me with a “radical” suggestion – to get rid of our cable television. Here’s some of what went through my head: “No cable? With two kids under the age of 5? I love TV! He must be out of his mind!!!”

After the initial shock wore off, we took a look at the facts. We were spending over $70 just for basic cable. That’s over $800 a year! No premium channels, no DVR. Our kids watched only a handful of TV shows on the same two channels. I primarily used the television for background noise while cooking dinner. While I love TV, it had been years since I’d been able to keep up with the current prime time TV schedule. And as a couple, we would sit together and watch maybe an hour or two per week, tops.

Our conclusion? That we were throwing away a ton of money every month and getting very little in return.
