4 Things To Know About Ways To Save On Cable

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – It's no secret paying for high speed Internet, cable and phone services can add up.

The President of The Connected Home, Chris Goodwin, started his company to help educate people no their options.

He said a good price for a bundle package is right around $100 to $120.

But is bundling the way to go?

Goodwin actually recommends breaking away from bundling because you may be able to get faster Internet or avoid long commitments.

"Sometimes one has a contract and one doesn't so you may be switching out of their promo offers all the time," Goodwin said.

Although it can be a hassle, he said another way to save is change it up.

"One of the best ways to save money is to keep switching between A and B provider," he said.

Goodwin said the common trend these days is cutting the chord from cable all together, but the cost of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime can sky rocket your television bill. He has seen bills as high as $300 dollars.

Finally Goodwin says buy your modem rather than rent.
