Default Thinking about cutting the cable...

Figuratively of course...but same idea..thinking about cutting off cable at our house, and was wondering if any of you have done the same? I still plan on keeping our internet, but it seems like I watch less and less of live t.v. only thing I think I will miss is my sports, but maybe I can borrow a buddies login info for the big games..thoughts?

I cut the cord a few months ago. Glad I did. I luckily still get all the digital channels on my cable, so I'm not missing anything. Saved me nearly $100/month.

cut off cable probably about 7 or 8 years ago. you can stream just about any show, movie or game. the biggest win is I'm not tempted to watch the "News"

We just did it. We still get some channels because we have internet service, but we really don't miss it a bit.
We have Amazon Prime, which is basically free because we've had Prime for years, and we have Netflix.
Plus the kids watch youtube on the tv.

We have a google chrome, a couple fire sticks, and a few of the tv's are smart tv's, plus I run a plex server with over 1000 movies.
There's WAY more media than we can ever get to.

I did it several years ago and we watch more tv now than we did when we had it. I use Roku and have Netflix and Hulu Plus. I also bought a onetime license for life to Playon and we use a plugin for that called Onechannel that has almost every tv show and movie known to man on it. It's probably not technically legal.
