    I bet 2/3's of that 1/3 are still spending money on cable tv, latte crapachinos, and going out to eat each month.

    I'm mostly against acquiring debt, but with rates as low as they are, properly structured lending can make a lot of sense to maintain liquidity.

    Unless you're running out of money before payday, I wasn't talking about you. Haha
    People just live beyond their means.

    Sort of neither here nor there, but Del mentioned cable.
    Streaming still can't replace it for me. I need to be able to just fire it up if I'm having trouble sleeping, or need something in the background while cooking or whatever. No waiting, no loading, no multiple services.

    That said it's funny how much shittier Cox is just because they switched to the Contour boxes. Slow, update all the f***ing time, the DVR menu is annoying as hell too. It's like cable is intentionally getting rid of their own limited advantage. I'm 33 and work on tech shit daily and these boxes drive me nuts, the older folks who still really want cable these boxes must drive even crazier than they do me.

    Cox..... hah.

    Couple of nights ago my main box went to do its nightly update and it wouldn’t come back.

    Six failed reboots later I went onto Cox’s website and found out the “system in your area has an outage”.

    IT WAS WORKING FINE UNTIL YOUR DAMN BOX DECIDED IT NEEDED AN UPDATE!!

    Those boxes simply don’t have the horsepower to handle the demand placed on them. The bad part is we’re not even putting that much demand on them.... yet.

    Youtube TV is painless and seamless, streams in higher quality than Cox ever did. 1080p60 for hockey vs 1080i on Cox.

    Youtube TV might meet your needs and I even say this as someone who hates google and only begrudgingly uses some of their services.

    Coming from DirecTv I haven't really noticed any better quality but overall I have to agree it's extremely well done service and I have zero regrets finally making the switch. Well other than it being google of course.

    Another endorsement here for YouTube TV. Good enough picture quality, and isn't missing any channels that I'd ever watch.

    When YouTube TV was just getting started a few years back, they placed one of those superimposed ads on the wall behind home plate during the World Series. This was just as I was getting ready to get rid of DirecTV. This was a rare example of TV advertising having an effect on me, since I mute pretty much every commercial and look elsewhere.

    Thanks. I've been suspecting this is the case for a long time, but never saw a plot like this one. Some of the reason is that high-paying jobs are found in expensive cities, but it's mostly because people are encouraged to live outside their means, as MIG observed.

    I lost the only 2 channels I watched with any regularity (Science and NHL Network) which really sucked but still don't regret the switch. Really hoping google adds them sometime soon though.

    I was approved for a $230k loan, but I'm trying to find a place for like 170-180k. I figure the cheaper the better, just because I'm typically a frugal person. I used to spend $1300 a month on rent and utilities, I'm guessing I can get somewhere around there all together with a place.

    It's just a matter of cutting back on other things. Another key is I'm looking for a place close to work, so I'm not spending a ton of gas and maintenance on my car.

    But yes, this is a huge issue. Everyone wants the latest and greatest things. But if you are just smart with your money, you can get by.

    When I think about what TV channel I would REALLY miss... it's NBCSN, but not because of hockey. I really like watching cycling. Have not been able to find it for free.
