When we got the basement finished at the end of November last year one of the things we got was a "large" screen tv for down there. In our case it's a 50 inch tv; dh thought he had died and gone to heaven having such a big tv. Prior to that the largest tv in our house was 32 inches........which by the way I thought was fine.
About that time I was going over my Bell bill and decided things had to change with that as it was getting more and more expensive. The kids kept encouraging us to get Netflix and drop down our tv package for a less expensive one. One of the things that was stopping us was dh watches a lot of sports and Netflix doesn't have sports.
However for once I got a great person when I called Bell and he walked me through everything and we dropped down our tv package. We upgraded our internet so we get unlimited internet and set up Netflix. Dh is not 100% happy as he doesn't get as many sports/soccer/football games as he used to get, and we had to add to add back a sport channel for $20 a month for the British football season. Overall though we are still saving about $20 a month.
We are enjoying Netflix and are plowing our way through Midsomer Murders and enjoying those. Have to say we watch mainly the British shows but I have watched a couple of movies Eat, Pray, Love (ok movie nothing exciting though,) and Still Alice (such a sad movie, and I cried like a baby!) a couple which although have been out a few years I have never seen.
I hope one day to get rid of our tv package all together but the sports channels, especially the British football games are proving an issue. If anyone has any suggestions on how to get those I am all ears. As I am very technically challenged!!
