Who doesn't love sitting down after an arduous, long weekend and finding something to watch on television?
Maybe you're "binge watching" your favorite television series, taking in a movie that you may have missed at the theater or just making it a point to check out something on your DVR to get caught up on what you missed, but the reality is cable and satellite television falls as a priority for most consumers, even those who promise that they hardly watch much on the tube.
But at what point does would be poverty as far as your budget goes outweigh priority as it relates to cable television and the high costs. Truthfully, discussion regarding cable television and satellite costs is polarizing in that most savvy consumers will try to circumvent their high bills by implementing the use of streaming services at a lower cost and just either partially or completely cancel their cable.
The cable and satellite companies fire back with a round of promotions that vary from the much publicized "triple play" from the likes of Comcast or Verizon FIOS, in addition to satellite companies like Direct TV giving a staggering low rate of less than $50 per month, with additions such as NFL Sunday Ticket in the case of Direct TV.
And while the cable and satellite companies love the idea of heaping on value by bundling services and adding freebies, the honeymoon period on those ends typically in divorce, and that is the real issue as to why the communications industry doesn't have much of a customer approval rating in the eyes of the consumers.
