Are you giving the ax to the cable and satellite companies?

Since buying our new converter box and an antenna off of ebay, I canceld our dish network. We get the locals and pbs, plus I bought a DVD recordor so I can still watch my shows when I want to, not to mention that all major networks have there shows available to watch on line. But my kids are not happy with the new switch. The new switch for me means I save $100 a month for them means they lost zoey 101 and iCarly LOL. Anyone else saying goodbye to thier cable companies?

  • We haven't had cable (or dish,etc) for 10 yrs. And we only get 1-2 stations.
    We just watch online or Netflix/DVD.
    we don't watch much.

  • I wish I could since Dish's price just went up, but I would die without tv. Maybe if I lived somewhere warmer.
