If there's one expense that epitomizes a love hate relationship, you'd have to set your sights squarely on that monthly cable bill.
The struggle with the cable bill is two fold and sports both positive and negative attributes. For starters, you may tell yourself otherwise, but you absolutely love cable and subsequently watching television. You love the options, the movie and music channels and almost view cable more as a necessity rather than a luxury.
Cable giants such as Comcast and Verizon FIOS truly make it difficult to say no as it relates to not having cable. With gadgets and technology that goes on for days, including DVR service and recording, cable is convenience personified and truly comes across as something just about everyone needs.
The flip side is the contingency of disgruntled cable fans and their propensity to cut the cord completely. They don't care enough about local channels or watching programs whenever they feel like it, and instead have opted for lesser fare that isn't quite as finite as cable, such as the always popular Netflix and Hulu, along with finally taping into that DVD collection they've been compiling for quite some time.
But much like everything else we opine over and want, why can't you have the best of both worlds? Yes, cable can be quite expensive, and the average cable bill tips the scale at $150 to $200 per month. That said, you can always negotiate and have room for improvement as it relates to lowering the cost.
