Livin' On the Right Side of the River From Pags!
Good point. I have only one TV in the house and hadn't considered the cost of additional boxes. I also agree with your comment on sports teams. I hate being locked into (or out of) a specific market.Cord cutting becomes economical for people who are renting HD cable boxes for 3+ rooms at $20/mo per box.* If you just have a one room cable setup then cutting the cord and signing up for multiple subscription services ends up being a wash from a money perspective.
Personally, the only thing that cable is good for me is local sports teams. When I'm no longer in my team's local market I opt for getting MLB/NHL packs and finding a bar to watch football.
*My biggest gripe remains that cable companies won't let you buy these.
