We did it.
We cut the cable.
After years and years of spending to much for hundreds of channels we never watched, we cut cable down to basic and only watch Netflix through our Roku/PS3.
That was in the offseason...
At 3AM on Wednesday the 28th, I turned on my crippled TV to try and watch the Mariners game which I was assured I would be able to by the Comcast rep. No Root sports. No Mariners. Fortunately I have the MLB Radio package so I could hear the game live but still, it was not much of a replacement.
I don't want to pay Comcast $80 extra dollars per month to see my Mariners. We don't watch any other TV and my Netbook doesn't do streaming live video very well. I am squarely in the blackout area so MLBTv on my Roku/PS3 is out as well.
What would you do? What DO you do? Suck it up and pay? Listen to the radio and enjoy the gamethreads? We were season ticketholders the last 3 years and now don't have any tickets, so needless to say I feel prematurely weaned and there is a lot of Mariner withdrawal going on.
Any help or opinions are greatly appreciated. Comcast is the devil, but should I be willing to get in bed with the devil for 6 months a year?
