Do you have cable tv ? we just cancelled ours yesterday cause it was just costing too much money. We have a thousand movies and all the episodes of the shows we like. We will probably go back and get basic cable eventually once we get set up in our new home a few monthes down the line.

No we have satellite. Cable was to expensive and they kept taking channels away while raising the price.

 We are getting rid of ours also because of the expense.  Kids will miss it but we will still have Internet so they can watch some things on there.

 Never had cable. Too many of our friends complained about it. We have dish.

We have digital cable but we don't subscribe to alot of the stuff like DVR and HD. It gets really expensive when you start adding lots of stuff.

we got rid of our cable 12/08 and it was the best decision ever. my husband is completely useless with the tv on so now he doesn't veg like he used to. james also plays instead of watching tv but enjoys the movies we have and his netflix shows. it's great because he doesn't have ads/commercials telling him what he wants.

Quoting mommytotwonow:

We have the same thing...cable, phone and internet package.  I does save us money as compared to splitting it but there is one bad point which I recently found out.  When your cable goes out you lose it ALL.  We recently had a flood in our area and we were without all of it for 5 days.  I don't mind missing the TV shows and internet...but I do mind not having the news when a natural disaster hits.  Our cell phones were working so my friends were keeping me up to date through calls and texts.  If there was a better option I would go for it but we are so limited as to choices here.
