Cable? Netflix? Roku? Dish? How do you watch TV?

I'm have always had cable, Netflix and Prime....I am thinking of giving cable up. I don't watch a lot, my kids do some, and have always kept it so I could watch the news. I was at the park last week, and a woman was telling me they don't have cable, and they still have 20-30 channels with an antenna...and they are news channels, along with others like A&E, sprout, and stuff like that...I was surprised how much they do have free. Then I was reading that with Roku, you can stream channels and local programming?

I'm curious, what do you do? How does it work for your family?

We have Brighthouse Cable.. we LOVE it and don't plan on doing anything differently.  We do have internet access tv too if we want to rent a movie directly from that as well and we go to Family Video for rentals too. When we lived where we use to live when we were raising the kids we had Charter Cable and loved that too. 

Before I met Todd I had no tv at all until my oldest son was 8 and then just a teeny tiny one with antennea and not very many channels that didn't come in very good. 

My parents have Dish and Todd and I hated it.. so before we got our apt we knew we didn't want that EVER!

We have Netflix and Hulu Plus. We stream via play stations in two rooms and a roku box in another.
