    In an article on "Budgets are Sexy," J$ talked about one way to determine if entertainment is worth the money- calculate the per hour per person rate. So if my crew of 3 goes to a movie, the total cost is $30 for two hours- $5 per hour per person. If we watch one two hour movie together on Netflix a month at $13, it's $2.16 per hour per person. One BluRay from Redbox is $2.18ish- $.36 per hour per person. Library- FREE. Lots of other factors exist for each person/family to decide, but this method helped me break down various entertainment expenses for cost comparisons.

    I've never paid for any type of cable or streaming service for television or movies and will not ever be starting to.

    Then again, I was raised without a television, so it really does not impact my life in the least. I am still a weekly customer of the library for books, movies and new music. Guess I pay for that indirectly in my property taxes?

      Which is a laughable portion of your taxes compared to the public skrools.

        Well, I guess those other peoples kids can continue to get a subpar education with a little help from me. I went to private school for 18 years plus University and am thankful for that boost in life my parents provided.

    This is the first rate hike from Netflix that got me thinking about cancelling. I really only use it to watch some Marvel stuff and the occasional series which I really haven't done since the early 2000's. (Highlander in case you were wondering...)

    Mostly we watch DVD's we've bought or utilized Amazon Prime Video since we're Prime members and I'm milking that for all it's worth!
