Need some help.

Thinking of dropping cable. Currently paying over 100/mo for cable/Internet. Internet alone is only 40/mo. Trying to figure out all the main subscription sites I would want if I dropped, to see if it would be wise financially.

Right now, the subscriptions I've included in my list are Netflix, Hulu Plus, and full season subscriptions for NBA League Pass (I forget, are archives blacked out too?) and NFL.com Game Rewind. I still come out 35/mo ahead.

Am I missing anything?!

This is offtopic as far as the Wolves are concerned but last night I got to see Andrew Wiggins play in person. I live in a small town in West Virginia and last night he played a game where I went to high school. The kid is unbelievable. He scored 57 points on 24-28 shooting and he made it look so natural and easy. He had some dunks in traffic, drained a few 3's from both high school distance and from about where nba 3 is at, and was able to finish through contact very well. It honestly was one of my favorite nights watching a basketball game.

blacked out games are available as soon as the game finishes(slight delay sometimes).

I'm with you. I'm a senior living in college apartments so cable is included but once I get a place of my own I'm keeping my subscription to Hulu plus then just getting subscriptions to watch the NBA & NFL online.

I'm jealous that you can get internet for $40 a month - my standalone comcast internet is like $60 or $70, I forget which, but it's ludicrous. I feel obligated to watch as much online basketball, porn, and movies as possible to get my money's worth because I hate Comcast so much. There was a solid outcry against cable company monopolies in the 90s, then it just fell to the wayside.

Evidently it's illegal to go into Wisconsin with a chicken on your head, too.

It's also illegal to sleep naked in Minnesota.

Nope. I've got someone coming by tomorrow with a grader to push the snow back. Right now I have a tunnel for a driveway. Another windy day and I'll be housebound again.
