Cable/Satellite bills.

The bane of our existence. If I didn't watch alot of live sports I would have cut the cord long ago.

Those of you who don't watch live sport you should cut the cord immediately and stop flushing your money down the drain. Netflix, network websites, Roku, WDTV, Chromecast, Apple TV, Hulu, and the list goes on.

If these companies want to exist they should offer a way for us to pay for the channels we want. Yes I know one subsidizes another blah blah blah.

Its and old broken model that extorts too much money for the 6-8 six channels I watch (sprinkled through 3 tiers of billing packages).

Society needs to organize and end this. Every household could use an extra $1-2K per year.

Final Word, I hear ya. We are sports junkies at our house, too. Satellite TV feeds our addiction for sure! Otherwise, we would flush it and save ourselves some money.
