    I don't really watch TV that much any more and half of what I watch I find online but I would go crazy if the kids couldn't tune into Noggin, Disney and Nick throughout the day.
    I used to watch all the time before I got cable internet because there was nothing else to do. I love watching shows on Discovery and the History channel.

    Hey there...
    I take it you are shopping around??? well I use to sell DirecTv so if you have some questions call me...are you looking for someone who have fiber optics or internet...DirecTv has it but is expensive...(internet) fiber optics are usually provided by your phone company ( where i used to work) it does get a bit complicated so if you or anyone else has questions message me....(you call me)

    I agree with justano. My kids love noggin, it's on the TV all day long. There are a couple of shows I like but I don't need it. It's good to have when I'm bored or relaxing. We used to have the premium channels until we realized we never watched them plus they're not worth it.

    Right now I have DirectTV, but we've decided when we move in the spring, we aren't going to have a TV at all. I'm excited!

    Right after Christmas I am going down to basic cable, just channels 2-24. I am also down-grading my Road Runner to RR Lite.

     I'm disabled so I cant go out a lot, so if I didn't have cable id be nuts! HBO and Showtime are great... Dexter and Weeds are fantastic.

    I have basic cable. I pay $11 each month. To me, that's not much to pay.
