    So Internet TV is going up everywhere.

    PlayStation Vue prices are going up $5 per month as are Sling TV, DirecTV Now and YouTube TV.

    Cord Cutters are paying close to what a cable sub is now.

    I posted this in the Horror Thread, but wanted to give a shout out to https://www.shudder.com/ - $4.99/month (or $3.99 if you sign up for 1 year) to stream horror movies. There's a lot of shit on here that I couldn't find anywhere else. Examples: The Howling, The Stuff, CHUD, Basket Case - Seems like the perfect September/October sub service. Cancel anytime if you opt for the $4.99 model.

    It appears they also have a relationship with Amazon (like StarZ and HBO), so if you sign up, you can use the Amazon app to stream their movies. Super convenient.

    If Netflix doesn't keep up with Amazon and Disney, they are fucked.

    Six years has passed since I made this thread and what I'm paying for Cable.

    I am was paying $137/month for Comcast which is reasonable. I've never paid over this amount in the 2 years I've been subscribing.

    I'm now paying $179/month - and doesn't appear I can negotiate any lower

    Favorite Roku channels?
    I have a very busy head. I have inside voices that I have learned to contain.

    Oh yeah, got that again when they announced Creepshow. Moved the big TV, computer, and what not to the basement. New smaller TV upstairs is an LG, so I needed a Roku for at least Shudder and HBO.

    Oh the Adult Swim one is excellent too. You can put on "Marathons" of Adult Swim shows, and they play from S1E1 to the final episode on a loop with no commercials. (I think there may be a 15 second commercial when it starts but that's pretty much it)

    I love Shudder, Tubi, Pluto TV and Adult Swim. Plus I enjoy finding different free channels on Roku. I hardly use my blu ray player anymore as a result.

    I’ve turned into such a horror snob.

    The horrorthon concept has literally killed my desire to watch horror for 90% of the rest of the year.

    I mostly save horror viewing for August-October. I love finding stuff I have never heard of before.
