Cancelling Cable TV For Netflix

As I posted in Replacing Cable TV with Netflix, we’re trying Netflix instead of cable TV for a month; that month is almost over and we’re cutting the cord – no more cable.
rogers internet usage nov 2010I just cancelled my television cable and upgraded my internet package. We didn’t watch any cable TV the past month, using Netflix the entire time. We all love it.

I upgraded my internet package to increase the download limit from 60 GB to 90 GB but the download speed remains the same. I’m willing to upgrade again if it’ll make a big different (from 10 Mbps to 25 Mbps), but netflix has been working well even on two devices at the same time.

We get Netflix through our wii, which is connected to my wireless router. I don’t like the wii interface but otherwise no problems. I also watch Netflix in bed using my iPod Touch with no streaming problems.

TV cable cost $80+ a month, which was cancelled. Netflix cost $8/month. Internet package upgrade cost an additional $10/month. Good savings overall!
