We have been without cable TV for almost 2 months. Can you believe that no one in my home has gone insane or died yet?! It was a desperate attempt to lower the monthly household bills in an effort to pay more off our debts. Joy.
I’m here to tell you that it worked. And I LOVE not having cable anymore!!! Our bill went from $160 down to $50 for internet only and this month is the first time that I saw a real difference. When that call came (you know, the one that says “We’re going to shut your shit off if you don’t pay”), I hopped online to see what the damage was then sighed a huge breath of relief when I remembered that it was so much less!
With that being said, I do secretly miss the DVR option. That’s it. I just want to be able to record shit so I can watch it on my time! I missed the premier of Walking Dead and last week’s Revolution. Gone forever. I’m too lazy to find them online and my laptop is rarely ever charged longer than the time it takes to bang out a mediocre blog post and slam it shut again!
Someday we’ll go back to cable, although I have a feeling after being so long without it we’ll all be glued to the TV for days until our eyeballs burn into the sockets. We shall see. Or shant we? Is shant even a word? The little red squiggly line is telling me it isn’t, so please take a moment to add shant to your vocabulary. Definition: opposite of shall.
This post just took two wrong turns and got lost on the road to nowhere, sorry about that people. I had a point…
Right. No cable TV = more money + more family time ( – two shows I’m still pissed about missing). But who’s counting anyway?
Where do you stand on cable? Could you live without it? Do you?
