I was worried for a second, had to check my sabnzbd backup folder to make sure I got this from usenet.
I still have basic cable but rarely use it. Most shows I'd like to watch are posted to usenet within 30 minutes of airing.
Automatic feeds to download what I like in 720p. Don't feel too bad about it since I keep basic for cnbc.

WTB Planetside2 without SoE.
