How often do you watch movies or netflix/hulu/amazon?

We're happy with just what we get through our antenna.  Occasionally, we'll get the urge to see some movies that we don't have, so we'll sign up for the one at a time DVD plan on Netflix for a few months or so.  We don't stream because our Internet service is craptastic.

I missed the local channels and the news and sports big time. We live in an area where if you don't have service you can't get local with antennae cuz we're too far away from the stations. I watched hulu/Netflix a lot when we didn't have it. So did my kids.

We just got rid of cable this month.  We don't miss it much at all.  The only thing I miss is my Witches of the East End show, which isn't on Hulu Plus, and won't be on Netflix until closer to the third season next year. *The first season is on Netflix now*.  We have both Netflix and Hulu Plus and can watch most of our shows on there.

Nope, not at all.  We haven't had it for over 5 years.  We watch Netflix and rent movies from the library often and we have an antenna for the regular channels.

I couldn't survive on netflix. The quality to our home is horrible, and I'm not wild about their selection

We have it... cheaper with our home phone and internet

There are a few shows that I would miss, but I have them on DVD.
