Right now anyone who has Directv for over a year with an HD DVR and an extra receiver is paying around $80 a month.(at the least) That is roughly $960/yr. My wife and I watch Food Network, Discovery Channel, BRAVO ( wife only ) Animal Planet, SyFy, TLC and USA. Honestly the new Mac Mini is looking like a great way to ditch Directv and possibly save in the long run. Thoughts anyone??
