    Totally agree with you. We couldn’t get it when we moved and went a few months without it, thought the world was going to end. 5+ years later still no cable. There are so many other mediums out there for entertainment without cable.

    Our family went without cable until the kids were in middle school. The only reason we got it at that point was to speed up our internet connection. Worked out great for the kids as they had to be creative with their time, etc. Wish I could convince folks in our house to go without again.
    Great ideas.

    We too have an antennae and get about 7 channels and yesterday we had something coming in on a channel that was always a blue screen prior to that. That is more than enough TV. I’m down to my ‘favorite shows’ now and try to do something beneficial during the rest of the time even if it is reading a book to review for Amazon!
