Dave, as usual all really helpful. Had to read that post like 3 times.
I just signed up for Hulu plus. I think that is really a good deal, especially with kids.
For us I think the magic bullet is Comcast-Apple TV-Hulu Plus-Netflix-Digital cable on the roof. A lot of work to get there but we are saving min. $160.00 per month. Right now that is huge for us. My new job does not have a company car and I am paying my own cell bill. And my base is smaller, so saving this amount really helps with the monthly bills.
