Other than a few favorite shows, I haven't missed a damn thing.
I have Netflix and an Amazon account if I want to watch something.
Since I'm the "techie" in the family, if I HAVE to watch something NOW, I can log into my parents' account and stream, as they haven't divorced themselves from TV.
But, for the most part, I simply don't miss it.
And somewhere in the past, my child TV addict self screams in horror.
With the equipment costs, and the push towards a "$100 minimum" bill and all these fucking channels you don't give a shit about...
Seriously, who the fuck needs 8-10 distinct ESPN channels both in SD and HD?
Plus "insert network" Sports Channels, etc?
I'm not a goddamn sports nut. Bundle all that crap into an optional package
I want a package for Scifi/Fantasy, maybe home improvement and science/technology.
And "news" channels can go DIAF.
The thing is, the cable companies want that "$100 minimium" no matter what.
So even if we get "a la carte", they're likely to screw with us no matter what.
