Internet vs. DVR
April 8, 2009 12 Comments
First, some monthly costs:
- Internet: $37.50 (I have residential Tier 3)
- Netflix: $8.95, I mainly stream tv/movies from this service. Rarely watch the 1 DVD a month.
- Cable: “Free”, it’s included in my rent
I use the web quite a bit, but it’s almost all for work or school purposes. The office is < 5 miles away, and I have a desk and two monitors at work… so if I need to browse the web/buy something/do email I go to the office anyway.
DVR service would cost me $22.50. DVR can replace my internet service and Netflix. That’s a savings of $23.95 a month for $287.40 a year. I’m looking to my readers to let me know if there’s something I’m missing. Comment and vote!
