So I had thought I might drop the Cox video service some time ago. But what kept me from doing so was that Keyron likes it for background noise.
But I noticed something the past few days. The TV has remained OFF. Net video has finally replaced the television.
If this continues on I may well tell Cox to shove their so called Advanced TV service at $90 per month straight up Hershey Highway!
I’ll pay the $60 a month for the net service because to me that has more utility than a television service. I can for example, post to my blog, chat on IRC, get nntp news feeds, RSS feeds, YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, etc. It’s funny – I was lamenting that Netflix only had The Twilight Zone when my favorite was the Outer Limits, the 1960′s version. And I note Hulu has the whole series, both the 1960′s and 1990′s versions.
Woops, update. The TV just got turned on damn it.

Well, I have been watching the stats on my post about ditching them. And I note that based on the number of hits I’m getting per day, we could if we all told Cox to fuck off on video services, cost them close to $10 Million a year.
So do it! Ditch them! Go with Roku, Amazon Video, Hulu+ and Netflix. It’s cheaper in the long run, less than 1/3rd the cost of Cox.
Lets hit them where it counts – in the pocketbook. And thanks for reading!

That my post about Cox and their ever rising video prices is being hit by A LOT of Cox subscribers.
Good – I hope I starve Cox of some revenue. Maybe then they’ll get the hint.
Put it this way, 49 hits for that post yesterday. Overall that post has been hit 350 which represents a revenue drop of about $28,000 dollars a month, or $336,000 a year.
And I’m pretty sure the post is starting to resonate. Good, Cox should know better than to piss off bloggers.
Seriously – they’ve made some pretty ludicrous claims that power costs have gone up, etc. But I pay for electricity too and overall the rate has stayed the same for years now.
Sure, the carriage charges get ridiculous but I shouldn’t have to pay or Cox’s poorly managed video service choices. For example, I could give two shits about all the sports channels in the lineup. But I get them anyhow because you cannot avoid it.
But that will change soon. I ordered the Roku device.
