Nope it's a waste of money! Netflix and Hulu are awesome and WAY cheaper.

I use streaming only. For one, I need to not spend unnecessary money. Two, I have always had the hardest time justifying the expense. Cable is just too expensive and most of its crap. Just my opinion.

NO, little of value is on tv period. Football season I go to the bar to watch. What is worth watching you have to spend a bunch of money for a couple of shows, so I listen to a lot of music and read.

Netflix and Hulu. Dumped cable some time ago and I'm better off without it.

We don't even have our TV hooked up to get local channels, either. I keep up with my few must-watch shows on Hulu, and if it's not on Hulu then I just don't watch it. We watch a lot of movies too. TV is mostly just junk anyway, so we'd rather purposefully choose something enjoyable to watch.

Only Netflix. We need internet a lot more than tv subscription.

BitTorrent is not illegal and is used for many legitimate reasons. It is unreasonable to assume that everyone who uses the protocol is breaking the law.

That ain't worth it, this is the way you do it: I get my TV for nothing and my movies for free.

No cable. There are enough programs on broadcast tv to keep me reasonably occupied, plus I use Netflix & Hulu Plus.

When I disconnected my cable, they threatened to raise my internet fee. So I threatened to disconnect that too & they dropped my price to $30. They will definitely call you back with a better deal.

People who don't have the money to waste on it. We'd rather have phone, internet and food (duh) than a tv subscription. Plus, Netflix has no commercials!

I have cable but after using Netflix for a few months I might not keep it much longer.

Comcast. No cable means no Internet and no True Blood. Either of those is a crisis.

Yay! DirecTV is my favorite. Had a lit of companies growing up at my parents, trying to get the best one. Insight sucks, not a fan of ATT, small ones were very spotty. Directv was by far the best.

I should clarify that I watch my shows on Hulu for free - I see no point in paying for that service.

I ditched TWCable (well over $100/mo) years ago for Hulu Plus, Netflix and Pandora One (less than $20/month).
