Honestly, I do not know at what point they’re willing to offer which price. The main idea here is to be willing to quit the service and ask. I don’t think you need to be unemployed, but I’d go with a story of relative hardship rather than anger over Fox News being turned off during contract negotiations. Of course, you can always float back and forth between service providers, always getting the best deals before you get roped into an extra year at the regular rate, but you don’t really need another dozen holes drilled into your home, and cable and satellite companies are looking to do just about anything to keep you away from Netflix, so go in with guns ablaze. And always remind yourself that it doesn’t matter how much you’re saving but how much you’re spending, so don’t make the mistake (and I’ve done this) of UPGRADING when you’re looking to downgrade. Sure, they’ll give you every channel in the repertoire for three months at the same rate as now, but when you forget to call, suddenly you’re paying twice as much as before. SAVE some money on television this year. Now I get to watch Perry Mason and The Rockford Files reruns just like I used to back in the 80s when I visited Grandma and Grandpa Ost. It'll be like a mini-vacation from mind-numbing reality shows.
