Re: who has ditched cable tv?
Glen, you're right...and if it was just me, it would be gone. i will look into the slingbox thing.
i ditched lan line about 10 years ago and haven't looked back. it was very odd the first month, but it just made sense. i have moved others over to the cell-only world. it's difficult to abandon if you were raised with it, as we all were.
i did check with netflix and all my son's shows...full seasons...are there. this is cool. the only thing i would miss would be recording tv. i do not want to connect a pc to my tv...i like the clean look, not the macguyver mess.
so the only issue would be dealing with stuff on network tv and how to watch them. i don't want to do that on a laptop. i may try the netflix thing out, it can't hurt, and it's only $8.99 a month.
so network tv: american idol, house, etc...what do i do for that? and hockey..... have to find out how to watch that. maybe it will still hit the airwaves..antenna?
Rich - $173 a month for comcast?! AHHHHHH.....so many people are doing that. that's why i got away from them. i'm spending around $95 a month for WOW (wide open west) for the same HD channels, fast internet, and HD DVR (no movie channels..HBO, SHOWTIME, ETC...waste of money.) i'm saving $90 a month. i want to save more....only using WOW for internet....$42 a month. add to that netflix possibly, and it's $50 a month.
i'm a little lost with the insurance / lan line thing? what is that in regards to? not taking credit card payments is it? i take credit cards via quicken over the web with a bank...no insurance charges lan line thing? what is this in regards to? what is going on?
