I read the complete works of Donald Duck!
I've got cable. I only keep it for the "My Pillow" commercials...
Man, that walking around upside down all the time certainly makes you a bit touchy doesn't it?
I'm the "rabbit ears" guy, the set is in my studio, I enjoy tv mostly PBS ( I don't fly so the travel shows are great) but I also watch a lot of old stuff, I often stay up late & work on things; lately I have been enjoying "77 Sunset Strip.." Never saw it as a waste of time, Sporting events I could't other wise afford or can't get away for, movies ditto, travel as mentioned, concerts, plus all that stuff on DVD (library.. no charge) or VHS (.25-or so second hand) Window on the world for me..
Mike said THANK YOU! I'm sure he'll send you some pillows in a day or two.
We're out in the country. No cable. Our internet doesn't support HD streaming very well. We therefore have the Mini dish (DirectTV) and we use it to watch Dr Who on BBC America and Masterpiece Theatre. I DVR Rick and Morty and classic Star Trek.
That's about it.
We have three Amazon Alexa units in the house so I don't even watch local weather anymore; I just say "Alexa tell me the weather". Alexa gets right to the point and the music on demand is great.
Love the Stranger Things!
I can believe the cable and the phone and the amps, but the plumbing thing is just outright bragging, if it's even true.
Netflix, Amazon and Roku. I had been paying for basic basic cable but cancelled it, I no longer pay for it but still get it, they either can't or didn't turn it off (I can live without it though). I do love baseball and hockey so buy MLB and NHL. I watch stuff from the network apps a day or week later, no big deal.
Now. I did just sign up to try YouTube TV. I'll probably cancel it when the free trial runs out like I did with Hulu and Sling. Just don't need/use/watch enough to justify paying for it.
I just dumped the BBC entirely. News much less biased on RT
I'm sorry that I have but one wall to give the TV in my living room! I try and make up for it by having them in other rooms too. I wonder if I should have them in the bathrooms? I saw a guy watching Big Screen TV in his garage, I was ssoooo jealous!
Isn't that the purpose of a ginormous cell phone/phablet? I thought that's why they were invented.
I have Comcast/Xfinity. I don't watch TV, I got it because I missed having a Pen Pal in a foreign County like when I was a kid. All I have to do is open a chat line on Xfinity and I'm 10 again.
I'm curious to read every ones comments on this. We do want to ditch cable, but live pretty far away from broadcast stations. I look into this every year trying to come up with a compromise solution. Most folks seem to get about ten channels around here on antenna.
We bought a Roku about three years ago. Really like it and hoped it would be a step to cut cable. That hasn't happened yet.
Just last week I bought a small antenna for the music room. Its in a basement and mounted near the ceiling can get up to 8 channels...depending on ??? weather? Kind of impressed with it. One of them is METV. I"m happy with that and 4 PBS channels. I'm working on getting the antenna pole mounted outside the casement window. I'm crossing my fingers for at least two more channels. We'll see.
Oh, Okay, I'm sure anyone going in there has at least ONE phone with them!
Cable TV -I watch Robot Chicken, Judge Judy, (Same show really) Monte Python reruns, How the universe Works, Strip the cosmos, and the very occasinal Rick and Morty or Archer , there is nothing else remotely interesting , period
Netfix- documentaries all else is crap to me
I'm reading "Soul Fingers"....biography of Donald "Duck" Dunn....does that count?
One thing about dtiching tv is you realize just how much more time you have in a day. Ever have a power outage and notice that those days seem to last forever? No tv = about 3-5 hours more time in the day to do other things....like play guitar, exercise, read, etc.
We cut the cord about 4 years ago and haven't regretted it. We use an antenna, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and YouTube.
I like TV, I find that it can be very entertaining, and educational.
The David Attenbough earth and life science shows brings places to me that I would never be able to see any other way.
Neil deGrasse Tyson’s series on space and science is amazing.
Oh! And if you feeling down and need a laugh, Andy and Barney will cheer you up.
