I took the plunge and called the cable company to get television. Last year, around this time we pulled the plug on television at my house. We still had the TV of course but we had the satellite shut off.
What did we do?
Using a PS3 and our Wifi Internet, we were able to watch shows and movies using Netflix and Hulu Plus. I started watching a lot of series that I never really watched before, Lost, Army Wives, Kitchen Nightmare, Pretty Little Liars and several others.
I admit there were times I missed having cable/satellite. Especially when it came to watching the news or during basketball season, although this year it was to painful to watch the Cats play most games. I used to turn The Today Show on while I was getting ready in the mornings. I did miss that too.
In the past year my mom would often say “did you see that on tv…” And I would say “mom, I don’t have tv remember.” Just recently she started to say “did you see…oh never mind, you don’t have tv.” At least now maybe I will know what she is talking about!
Overall I can say I didn’t really miss having cable. But the things we do for love. I’m blaming this decision on my husband! I guess you could say I broke down and scheduled cable installation all in the name of love. He better appreciate this!
