HBO Max: $15
Comcast Unlimited Data Plan: $30

Comcast blast Internet Only: $83.00 -10.00 (paper bill with auto pay)=$73.00
Hulu + Live TV and Enhanced Cloud DVR: $62.56
Once we decide to cut the cord we will add HBO Max here as well. $15
We May need the unlimited data back (cancelled for now).

We paid for these either service used:
Netflix - $14.05/month
Amazon Prime - $119/year
Disney+ - 3 year sub
Apple TV - cancel when sub over (free with apple iPad purchase)
TiVo Bolt- Lifetime sub for device

Edit: I wanted to add I was so frustrated at times, wife left the room....in the end she said don’t show me anything or try and explain it to me until YOU have decided it all works well. Lol
I'm not sure if it includes all the kids stuff, but you can get PBS streamed through the PBS app for $5 a month - equivalent to a $60 annual pledge to PBS. It's another charge, but if you were a pledger or thought you should be a pledger, that covers it.

YouTube TV should carry PBS. I'm not sure how many of the other "tv replacement services" do.

One of the frustrating things is that once something like FUBO, Hulu Live TV, YouTube TV or similar starts carrying all the channel, they become similar to your cable prices. Of course, it depends also on how DVR needs, multiple devices, etc., too.

Ultimately, I'm a happy cord-cutter because I loathe giving such an old-school model of Cable TV the business and I truly enjoy the flexibility I have to watch TV my way!

Yikes that's a lot. Maybe the TV adds a lot?

We have 100 Mbps down/6 up (and this is all we need), with no TV for about $50 total - including renting their modem. We could move to 1 Gbps down for like $85. I know it's regional, but that's a big difference.

Cheers,
Bruce
