I made a last attempt to allow Spectrum to salvage the relationship. I told them I was interested in their streaming-only option, and they said, yes, but you have to select only ten cable channels. OK, I said, I can make that work. There are eighteen channels I watch regularly, but many of them have just one or two shows.
I think that I almost lost it when the guy told me, no I could not buy the streaming-only option because I already had the conventional cable-TV package. I pointed out that the alternate for Spectrum was, that I would be buying no TV package whatsoever. The fellow repeated,
So now I have signed up for a promising Hulu package, and I will use Plex DVR to get Jeopardy!. Between cable and TiVo, I am shedding about $100 a month in expenses. That will cover buying a few seasons of things not in Hulu on Amazon.
