    We have the old school box where we get the network stations for free as well as a few other random ones. you don’t have to pay to get NBC, CBS, PBS etc.  Its free.


    We have an xbox that we never set up. We could stream netflix, but havent gotten around to it. We just dont watch that much TV. Its only in our bedroom.  I find we listen to a lot of radio and talk a lot more (and get more done) when a TV is not in the main area of the houce

    I have cable but my brother does not. He got tired of paying over $100 a month to watch the same things that he can find online.

    I personally need cable for my hockey addiction.

    We do Internet and Netflix through our Xbox, but that’s about it. Cable’s just not worth the cost.

    We switched to Apple TVs a couple years ago, and I much prefer it.  Even though some shows don’t come out as soon, two Apple TVs on Ebay cost as much as two months of cable.  We’ve saved about $1500 by not subscribing to cable!

    I have the good old rabbit ears options.  Its great, I get about 10 stations including local and most in HD and its free.  For everything else I use netflix streaming or just stream off websites.  Most major channels now put up there shows online to watch.  Its just to expensive and I don’t need an excuse to sit in front of the TV any more than I do

    We haven’t had cable for awhile now. We get digital channels for free and have netflix on our Wii that’s hooked up to the TV so we spend $17/month for “tv & movies” on that. It’s better than the $100 cable bill we had before!

    We only got a TV a month ago, which we use to watch movies on occasion.  We share the cheapest Netflix account they offer, and watch a movie maybe once a week. Sometimes I watch tv shows online, but not in several months.  We’re just not really TV people.

    Keep up with shows? I can’t remember the last time I watched a TV show. I’m apparently stuck in my commute too much and then I need a happy hour to recover. lol

    Yes, I consider it a pretty important expense.  Not that I am a huge TV addict, but I am a sports addict.  If we lived somewhere we could get a satellite, I would even pay for that so I can watch my out of market teams.

    We have cable, on demand, all that fun stuff. I love it. When I grew up we didn’t have cable and I always felt like I was missing out. Before Fiance and I got our house we would buy all of our favorite TV shows on DVD so we didn’t miss any eps. Now we can just record them 🙂

    No cable [digital or otherwise]. No satellite. No On Demand. No netFlix. No antenna.


    We don’t watch tv at all. Haven’t for over 3+ years.

    Yeah, go ahead, call us hippies.
