I have remained strong and we have not had cable in our house for 8 years.. Well I called the phone company to make an adjustment on our phone bill and they upgraded our service to a better DSL and did some other stuff with long distance.. anyway I was confirming the changes with my DH while on the phone with the att guy and my husband jokenly said.. hey can we get a year of free cable with that too.. then laughed.. the guy said actually yes there is a promo going on let me check.. soo he comes back on and says yup you can get a year free of DISH 100 channels. And get this .. I am getting an upgrade of DSL, Long distance unlimited, and a year of DISH for all of what I am currently paying. In one year our bill will jump $40 a month but the guy said to call back and we can change it all around again and maybe get it less expensive.. BUT... I hate cable.. there is such a difference in the comercials and content of programing.. Half the stuff I dont want my kids to watch.. I am going to have to do some serious parental controls on this thing.
