Drop DISH.. no need to watch a show that's not streaming at this point, unless the service cost is tied to your DSL fee.
Im excited for Disney +... but i have 5 kids
Dude, I would love to drop DISH. Here is the problem: I have only ONE internet option out here. ATT DSL service. Like, I said, it’s barely fast enough to stream ON ONE DEVICE. We have two SmartTVs, and my recluse of a stepson streams video games when he is home. He’s 22 years old, really good looking and NEVER socializes with his peers. All he wants to do is go in his cave(room) and game, which means that on weekends if my husband and I want to binge watch a show, we have to ask him not to game. If we had high speed internet out here that would be no problem.
The messed up thing is that ATT charges more a month than cable does for high speed. Our monthly internet bill ranges from 55 to 85 a month depending on how much we stream. Yeah, there’s a cap on the data, which is BS. It’s a line in the ground, not a freaking cell phone.
When they are 18, they are out the door. 22 years old and playing games from his bedroom. Time to cut THAT cord. As long as my kids were productive and self sustaining they got to stay.
NOT judging, but trying to encourage you.
I forgot to mention that he does pay rent, which includes paying his share of the utility bills.
Sorry, forgot to mention that. It just seems weird to me that he would rather game and when he does get out, it’s to play D&D(with dudes). My son, who is only 5 years older, says “Damn ma, I love gaming but even I am not that big of a nerd”.
I don’t know, a young man should be chasing tail at that age.
