Dear PoPville – Canceling Cable Advice

Dear PoPville,

I was curious if PoPville has any experience with “cord cutting” (i.e. canceling cable on using online streaming services). Our Comcast bill for TV/internet is very expensive (~$175/month – granted, we have the ‘deluxe package’ with two boxes, a DVR and HBO), but we are thinking about dropping it and getting an indoor antenna (to get local channels), Apple TV or a Roku for streaming, and paying for subscriptions to for Hulu Plus and Netflix. After the intitial hardware costs (~$150), we assume we can drop our monthly bill for everything by about $100 (to ~$75). We figured the tech savvy crowd would have some opinions and experiences to share.
