How To Cut Your TV Costs

As part of its efforts to help consumers cut their costs during the pandemic, the Citizens Utility Board (CUB) of Illinois has released its 2020 Guide to Cutting Your TV Costs.

CUB's guide outlines consumers' choices in the current market, provides strategies for negotiating with a cable provider, and explains options for ditching cable service entirely.

"One of the most common complaints CUB gets is about the cost of cable-TV service," CUB Communications Director Jim Chilsen said Friday. "TV is a key service for people during the pandemic, and we know people are concerned about cutting their costs. For consumers who are frustrated with their cable bills and considering alternatives to traditional TV, we hope this guide helps them get control of their TV costs, whether they stay with cable or cut the cord."

The guide gives tips on how to cut cable bills, outlines typical cable charges and summarizes popular streaming services. It includes possible options for cutting TV costs and a worksheet to help do the math on the cheapest plan possible to meet a household's viewing preferences.

This is the third edition of the guide. CUB reviewed more than 100 sources to find the tips to help consumers make the best choices for their TV service. To get e-mailed a free copy of CUB's Guide to Cutting Your TV Costs, visit this order form.
