Yes we pay for cable.
Most of the shows we watch are on cable channels, so I think it's worth it to us.
I've switched from the most expensive provider to the lowest one. I do call and talk to them about available deals for current members. Usually these are good for 1 year and then I call back looking for new offers. Oh, we also don't have any movie channels, only the basic. That helps keep the cost low.

I call whenever our current promotion is up to see about another discount. They are usually good about helping us out. We have cable but only basic local channels so we don't actually use it. But it does help cut down on cost for internet to have the bundle.

Do you pay for cable TV? Not cable but satellite

Do you think its worth it? Yes

Is there something specific you watch? we watch a lot of different shows or channels. My son loves the history channel National Geographic channel and shows like "how it's made".

How do you keep the bill down? Tips or tricks? No tips or tricks really. We have the company that was the cheapest in our area (DishNetwork), get free HD and have the package we can afford.

No

We haven't had cable in the five years we lived here

I watch Glee, The Biggest Loser, Teen mom and 16 and pregnant all on my computer

Tips tricks borrow movies from the library, check out Hulu.com, check the web sites for the cable shows you watch.
