I have Prime. Free/fast shipping is nice. I do shop around for the best total price.

One thing that helps with Amazon's BS of changing prices is deleting browser cookies. And don't shop while logged in.

I had DirecTv but when it went to $142/month ($1700 a year) and their best offer was to drop the bill to $80 plus tax, well, Bye! After 18 years...

I bought a Roku Premier and an antenna for over the air for a total of $120. From Wal-Mart of course... Ship-to-store is handy IF they don't lose your stuff.

Local channels over the air are in HD. Huh, I was paying DirecTv for HD... Sub-channels are interesting. And when it rains I still have TV.

The Roku is fun. LOTS of free stuff. Sure, you get commercials, big deal, time to get another beer and get rid of the last beer.

We watch a movie on Prime almost every evening. Call it 4 times a week, times 52 for 208 movies. For the price of Prime at $98/year. Beats the hell outta Redbox and driving into town to get and return discs.... which has never happened.
