Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot of people talk about how they plan to cancel their cable tv. Not just the movie channels, but all of the channels. No tv at all.
These people aren’t planning to stop watching, of course. There’s Netflix for movies and you can find a lot of tv shows online for free or through iTunes for a small fee.
I’m planning to at least look into getting rid of some of my cable channels when my contract is up in September, and I toyed with the idea of just cutting out cable all together.
That thought lasted about 2 seconds. Sure, there’s a lot that I can watch online for free. Not everything, though. But I can’t watch the news live every night. Some sporting events are available online but not everything. And there are always specials that you can’t find online (at least not legally). I think I would feel very cut off from the world without being able to turn on the tv and see what’s being reported about current events. Sure, I could get the same in text form online, but it’s not the same. Besides, do I really want to watch all my tv on my laptop?
What do you think? Do you want to get rid of your cable? Cut back? Or do you have all the movie channels and love it?
