    Then:

    Cable (basic cable + all the movie channels + DVR + 2 cable boxes) + landline + home internet = $240
    Hulu (without commercials) = $12
    Netflix - $8
    Total = $260

    Now - DirecTVNow + all movie channels(with 20 hrs of DVR) = $71
    Hulu (without commercials) = $12
    Netflix - $8
    Home internet - $50
    Total = $141

    Could we drop it lower? Yes. But we like the availability of live streaming tv and DW watches a lot of shows on the movie channels.

    We have Amazon Prime too - but it is for the shipping not for the tv.

    I hemmed and hawed about cutting cable for YEARS - but honestly, there hasn't been anything that we are missing. The interface is a little more cumbersome (ie. some shows we watch on Hulu without commercials and some we have to DVR) but it is worth saving the $120/month
