I've used 417GB with 6 days left on my billing cycle

WTF? Do you own a television? Are you a bootlegger?

Phone plan? Like VoIP? I'm assuming I watch a lot more television than you guys. I only really stream for watching scrubs, something I miss on PBS, or kstatehd. We work the crap outta the DVR here. I can't imagine what I'd do with 10x more gigs? Steal more music? :dunno:

Actually yeah.

They get home from school, do homework, eat dinner, play for a little bit, bathe, then we read from 7PM until bedtime. Add to that mix the nights we have sports practices, music and performance arts rehearsals, and that about covers it. They have leap frogs but they really only use them when we fly or drive to Manhattan for games. I did buy them kindle fires for Christmas but I don't think they will use them very much, my 7 year old is a huge book work, she reads chapter books a week. I never did that crap, barely do now, I read a max of three books a year.

We were looking to get an Apple TV for our basement TV, so I signed up for the 3 month prepay deal. I tried it on my phone and it seems good.

Tonight I was watching cat volleyball on the smart TV, Rowing The Boat on my tablet and watching KU volleyball lose on my cell phone, all of the pictures looked great and had no lagging issues at all. I just don't understand the need for all of that bandwith you get with fiber.

All you cord cutters are saving me $$$ by putting the squeeze on cable providers. Prices are lower, a la carte is emerging, and 24 month contracts are a thing of the past. I've stayed with DirecTV because of the sports, and the DVR, and the simplicity of channel surfing. The merger with AT&T has made the bundled internet easier and cheaper, too.

I just re-upped for another year and have Choice Package (all the regional sports and basically every other non-premium channel), WHDVR, 6mos HBO, NFL Sunday Ticket, and 50mbps internet for $96+tax. That's the lowest I've paid for that much stuff since DVRs hit the market.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

I pay for super fast internet and pirate everything else. So that savings isn't coming from me
