Dad gets DirecTV. Sunday ticket & WWE is the only reason why I watch. TV is a reality wasteland. Who wants to see naked people in a jungle? It's idiotic

Technically neither - fibre optic television instead.

Yes, I enjoy their products BUT feel that I am being robbed in order to enjoy them

Yes, and I'm beginning to wonder why. It's expensive and they don't offer much of anything. In fact most TV these days is not worth watching.

Yes, but dropping it. Nothing worth watching that I can't stream in some way.

Cable TV is a waste of money in my opinion. I have the internet.

Growing up I only had three "over the air" stations to choose from. No option to pay for TV service. I have never been able to justify paying for TV service, so I do not have cable or satellite TV service, only over the air.

Same here, my parents never had cable but now have Netflix, but that's because we buy them Netflix gift cards on birthdays and Christmas. So they really are not paying for that either. Lol

Cable. They are the only reasonable choice for InterWeb access here, and the discount for getting TV and landline service as well makes the choice even easier.

If it weren't for football season, I would probably be happy with Netflix and Hulu plus. But I work too many Sundays and need to record games.

We just cancelled directv. Tired of paying a fortune for terrible service and 100 channels we don't want or need.

Cable and hulu is sufficient. Down with these telecom companies that think they are immune to technology changes.

Not anymore. We "cut the cord" this year and just have Internet - we only pay for Netflix and Hulu.

I see commercials advertising OTA HD antennas. Like its a new concept? OTA analog was around since 1949. People were so brainwashed paying for TV They don't even remember you could ALWAYS have an OTA antenna. Parents still and never had cable!

Good to see so many cable cutters. My condo has an OTA antenna on the roof, so use that Netfix, Hulu Plus, Roku, Apple TV, Video Podcasts. Really there are so many free and cheap ways to get content why does anyone pay for TV service anymore?

So glad I ditched them. My bill went from $180+ down to $60 for 'net only. We really don't have time for much TV anyway, so why spend all that cash?!

Yes, but I've been planning to switch to Netflix and just pay for Internet and phone. I don't watch much TV and when I do it's usually reruns of older shows.

Unfortunately. Can't wait to get away from direct tv and its liberal addenda.

Only because the cost of a package with 10 basic channels was cheaper than internet alone.

That would be "Yes", to both! I subscribe to cable at home for TV, and unparalleled streaming speeds for my home Mac. I also subscribe to Sirius Satellite Radio for my vehicle, work, iPhone, and web.

No! Too expensive, hate commercials on regular and cable TV (which never made sense to me...PAYING for commercials?) And most TV shows are lame. I'd rather wait till they're on Netflix.

Sadly that's true for some of the decent shows.
