If you need to save money, get rid of the premiums and get 1 or 2 On Demand channels.

If you do any downloading you'll really love that after 170 MB downloaded in a 4 hour period your connection is cut down to around 24kbps!

u usually got to pay more for the cable company to let u have 1.5 mbps. otherwise they limit it... my bill is about $75/month and i get 1.5mbps cable and the first tier of cable (about 15 channels).

my premium channels are:
12 HBO'* (two in Spanish)
10 Showtimes
4 TMC'*
7 Starz!
12 Encore'*
11 Cinemax'*

The worst part about having all these channels is when there is NOTHING on ANY of them. What a pain in the but. Plus we have been decent amount of interference lately.
