A reader recently sent a link to a site that has been put up, CancelCable.com, with tips and instructions for how to do away with cable or satellite bills while still getting good TV reception. It's an argument I've also made—that new digital broadcasts, combined with fast-growing online services, can give you much of what cable offers at no cost.
It's still a bit of a hassle, so the tips are welcome. CancelCable.com also offers a directory of online offerings that's helpful. We'll just hope they keep it up to date.
