Need to Lower Bills....starting with the TV

We currently have Dish Network and we love it and love DVR and all the bells and whistles; however, can no longer continue to pay it. 

We want to know what other alternatives are out there and have found a few but do not understand them, etc... We aren't sure what to do next.

I am hoping a reader out there can shed some light on this.
I have found so far, Netflix and Hulu Plus (and figured the product Roku to watch them on).
Has anyone made this switch and how do you like it?
I know either are $8 per month and the Roku (bottom price) is $59.99 (which is a streamer for either and makes it where you don't have to be hooked directly to a PC).

This is a question for anyone out there that can help us out with some information. I am looking for personal have A or B and you like it...don't like it and miss your cable/dish, etc...

Thank you for reading and looking forward to all responses on this issue.

We use Netflix and like it, a lot! We JUST got basic cable. We can FINALLY watch normal tv and I don't feel like I'm totally in the dark when people talk about funny commercials and ect. This is all we buy and we feel it is totally sufficient.

Call Dish, when I called I told them I couldn't afford my service anymore. They offered me a "Welcome" package for just 14.95 per month with no expiration date. I have been a customer for years and was not under contract. Give them a call, they might still have it.
