It’s easy to subscribe to more entertainment services than you really use, and to keep paying those monthly fees without getting your money’s worth. Here are some thoughts on making the most out of your entertainment dollars.
Premium Cable Channels
Do you watch the premium channels you pay for? Really? Great. Otherwise, cancel them. You can always resubscribe when your favorite series comes back on the air (my fellow Entourage fans – I’m talking to you). All it takes is one quick phone call to cancel or resubscribe.
Free movies through cable TV
It takes some hunting, but your cable TV provider probably has a few ‘free’ movie channels. Take the time to look through them every once in a while – you’re bound to find something you’ve always wanted to watch. You’re already paying for them, so use them.
Netflix is a great deal for people who actually watch the movies they rent. But for the many people who let a Netflix DVD sit around for weeks before watching it, it’s not such a great deal. It’s easy to cancel, resubscribe, or change your service – just a few clicks on line can easily save you some cash.
Consider subscribing to more movies-at-a-time in the winter when you spend more time at home, but fewer movies-at-a-time in the summer when you spend more time outdoors. Whatever you choose, just make sure to take advantage of it.
