I dropped cable years ago, and have never had satellite. I have a dedicated VHF antenna for three channels, and a 6 ft UHF antenna for 17 more. Those are primary and sub channels (13-1, 13-2, 13-3, etc) out of Macon, GA. I probably have less than $150.00 total in both antennas and the signal booster. When I lived in the burbs of Atlanta, we could get even more channels with just rabbit ears.
For internet we started with ATT DSL, but it has since been upgraded to whatever came next (Uverse?). They wanted over $50.00/month, and being the only service available, we paid it. A couple years ago another cable company ran lines down the street, as you now have happening with the electric co-op. We called ATT and said we were thinking about switching to a package with the new company. We've been paying $40.00/month for internet ever since. With that we can stream Netflix and anything else we want. The Don got an early promo package from Sling with which to watch SEC football (yes, I have a good one), which also includes many of the channels offered on most cable packages - for much less.
Years ago I had a "Limited Basic" cable package that cost about $5.00/month. It included the local network broadcast channels, PBS, CNN, and a couple shopping channels. At one address we signed up for the same limited service, but the cable guy didn't have the filter on his truck. He never managed to make it back out, so we got the whole package for the same $5.00/month.
Those are a few of the games I've played with this stuff, hope it helps. MSG
