    Mine is a lot more than that and I don't have the phone. New customers can get that package deal for 100.00 but after the yr is up don't bend over as they screw you and the price is 50% higher

    Just PM me or one of 30 other members when the season starts. You'll get to watch your games online.

    My cable/internet/ground line/cell bill was usually $350-ish per month (all bundled through the same provider). I sold my business this past spring... no new income incoming. I'm trying to avoid the need to get a job. It's probably unavoidable, but by cutting out stupid expenses (like the $350 bill detailed above), I might be able to enjoy a life of cycling, bedding far-too young women and inhaling black hash for the next couple of decades while remaining blissfully unencumbered by a "job".

    Probably not... but...

    A dude can dream.

    I actually love watching the streaming online. I usually get the Sky TV feed. Which has fewer commercials and more in game analysis from the studio guys.

    Breaking Bad
    Mad Men
    It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
    Louie
    The West Wing
    30 Rock
    The Office
    Parks and Recreation
    Futurama
    Family Guy
    24
    The Walking Dead
    House of Cards (Netflix exclusive)
    Arrested Development (recent season Netflix exclusive)
    Sons of Anarchy
    Weeds
    Scrubs
    King of the Hill

    And movies...

    Pulp Fiction
    Jackie Brown
    Traffic
    Rain Man
    The Avengers
    What's Eating Gilbert Grape
    Hugo
    Clerks
    What Dreams May Come
    Chinatown
    The Hunt for Red October
