Find a neighbor down there and ask if you can watch the game at his house.  Or get the wifeypoo to set up her phone camera to watch the game and facetime it to you, kinda like watching a pirated movie on a DVD you bought at a flea market..  Or since youre out in bejeebus, listen on this thing called a radio.  It allows you to imagine we're not as shitty as we might appear on TV.

Wifeypoo will be at the cabin with me.  Otherwise, thanks for the complete lack of a solution help.

No way I dump Cox Cable.  I freakin love it. 

That second part isn't a bad idea if I could find someone. 

So basically, neither of your solutions work for me.   So keep working.

Might check nobville - heard they are all cox lovers over there

1) dump cocks and get dish or dtv at home and you can just take your box to the cabin
b) borrow a spare dish box from someone with an active subscription to take

Okay Smart Woopig Peeps...I have a cabin in the woods.  For the last several years, I've had Dish Network.  I turn it on in mid to late September so I can watch games when we're down at the cabin hunting.  It used to be $50 a month for the sports package.  Now, it's almost $100 and that's too frickin expensive for MAYBE 6 days of use over the span of October to December. 

Are there any other solutions to getting TV at my cabin for select games?  For instance, we'll be down there for the opening of deer archery season on Sept 27th through 29th and would want to subject ourselves to the Hogs vs. Aggies game at 11 AM.   We have electricity there (obviously) but only through a generator.  We have a very very weak cell signal so getting it on say WatchESPN wouldn't work well at all really.   Is there any type of a la carte way to get ONLY the channels you need?   

I'll hang up and listen.

You have to add lines or change carriers to get deals on new phones. Don't think they care about trade-ins anymore.

We switched to t-mobile a couple years ago and have no regerts in dfw - $160 for 4 lines unlimited and no bullshit billings to call about.

We waited a good while until they had 2 buy one get one deals going at the same time and did 2 iphones and 2 notes. BOGO on iphone comes around new phone release dates.

ATT is all about the bundle so if you are into their other services, it can be hard to beat their cell phone price with the bundle discounts. We have dropped them 100% since the directv fiasco.

My wife and I have an iPhone 8 plus and an iPhone 6, both paid-for, and we've been on AT&T forever.  Our current joint bill is about $120/mo.  We'd like to trade in and get new phones and a new service plan.  What's our best option?
