Truth is since I have been married (7yrs this summer) we've never gotten cable. Would I love cable? Sure! But I know myself and I would probably indulge with TLC, History Channel, Crime TV lol Plus it is nice to have the extra cash each month. We have the local channels that is free and we buy our son DVD's to watch. When people find out we don't have cable, they are in shock. What you don't have you don't miss. Maybe one day!
