It’s January 2022, and by now, we’d have thought we’d seen the end of COVID-19. With Omicron on the loose, some of us are downsizing bills again because we don’t know what the work situation is going to be. If you’re concerned with overspending or you just want to save some money, reducing your cable bill is a great way to start saving money.
Here’s Freedom Stream’s guide to cutting cable costs and negotiating your cable bill.
The Great Negotiation
If you’re unhappy with your cable bill, you might be wondering how to lower it. First, you should call your cable provider to let them know that you’d like to lower it. You can do this by calling customer service and explaining that you’re concerned about the price of your current package. Ask for a better deal and threaten to switch providers if you don’t get it. Most cable companies are more than willing to work with you if you stick with them for a while.
There are many ways to reduce your cable bill, including cutting the cord. The simplest way is to cancel your cable service. You can choose to only pay for your internet service and cancel your cable service. If you don’t care about live TV, you can opt-out of cable and only pay for your internet service. There are many online calculators that will help you estimate how much you can save by canceling your cable plan.
Retention? Now We’ve Got Your Attention!
Another way to lower your cable bill is to call your cable provider and ask for a lower rate. Most companies have a retention department that will gladly negotiate on your behalf. All you have to do is ask nicely and you should be able to get your bill lower. Then, you can cancel other services that are no longer necessary. Lastly, you can ask your cable provider to stop charging you for unnecessary services. If your cable bill is getting too high, consider switching to a cheaper provider.
Cancellation Department Please!
The last method for lowering your cable bill is to cancel the service you already have. Sometimes you can get cheaper deals by dropping certain packages. In addition to cutting the cord, you should research the market price, compare different providers, and take advantage of promotional offers. When it comes to cable services, competition is the key. It’s possible to lower your cable bill by as little as $10 per month. That would be a huge saving for you if you cancel your service.

Use Your Cell Phone for More Than Candy Crush
Your cell phone may be an option. Most cell phones have the option to be used as a Hot Spot and can be used to provide wireless Internet access to a few devices close to it. Personally speaking, We use an iPhone 13 Pro Max with 5G. I take my Freedom Stream Scissor with me wherever we go, and can easily stream 4K movies using my phone as a Hot Spot. Contact your cell phone service provider for more info.
If You Have No Other Choice
In addition to your cable service, major cable companies offer other services. You can choose to bundle these together with other services to save money. You can also negotiate a lower price if your cable company offers more than one service. In general, you’ll save more if you use bundles. However, it’s important to keep in mind that it is important to be aware of the rates before making any kind of negotiations with the cable company.
Last But Not Least
If you want to reduce your bills, the cable bill is the best place to start. You can try to negotiate a better rate, cancel services and move on to another provider, and/or even try to use your phone as a viable Internet connection. With all of these options, you’re not stuck or bound to a single provider. By cutting unused services like television from your plan, you’re bound to save money on the service and the equipment rental.
