Pocket Ninja: The very instant that HBO becomes available as a standalone subscription will be the same instant I cancel cable forever and get by solely with Amazon Prime.
Endive Wombat: - Sitcoms are Reality TV is the lowest form of TV "entertainment"
albert71292: I cut the cord a little over two years ago, don't miss it at all. I find quite a bit to watch for free on the 18 over the air stations I get with my outdoor antenna. Also, I watch a lot of "TWiT" and "GFQ" online.Not going to pay for any streaming services until I get faster bandwidth. Did the free 30-day Netflix trial, but cancelled before billing started, because of excess buffering.

santadog: Netflix. That is all.
busy chillin': I picked up a free TV off of a curb a couple of years ago and then got another subscription from Dish so now I have 2 tvs next to each other and I just constantly watch reality shows and all that stuff.
Endive Wombat: - Asking me to pay somewhere between $150-$200+ per month, plus $45 per month for high speed internet is insane! Especially considering of the ~500 or so available channels being offered, both my wife and I only watch maybe, MAYBE 10-15 of them.
Queensowntalia: 'Buttcracks of Bel-Air' is ok, but I prefer 'Wedgies of the West,' the reality show about cowboys who wear their jeans too tight.

Especially considering of the ~500 or so available channels being offered, both my wife and I only watch maybe, MAYBE 10-15 of them.Do some people actually pay that? I pay $110 for cable and internet with HBO and a DVR. I was considering cutting that down to just internet because it's too much. If someone threw the prices you're talking about at me, I'd have never even considered getting cable.
SockMonkeyHolocaust: After over 10 years, I am kind of to the point where I don't even watch DVDs or NetFlix anymore or I watch Repo Man over and over again. I watched 10 minutes of Big Bang Theory the other day and I can't believe that anyone is watching it without some kind of incentive or their families are being held hostage or something. TV is like religion to me, it's just not something that has a part in my life or something I really think about except when I post about how I don't have a TV.I will say this, though. I am not trained to be around them any more. I can't ignore TVs in the wild. I wind up just staring.
Lady Beryl Ersatz-Wendigo: I got rid of my TV five years ago. I don't even do Hulu or Netflix. If, for some godforsaken reason, I become desperate to know whether Don Draper has hooked up with Cersei Lannister then I will look it up on the internet.
giftedmadness: santadog: Netflix. That is all.and torrents....
jonr: History Channel, gone shiat.Discovery, gone shiatEven National Geographic, gone shiat.I wonder why people are just giving up on TV...
jimb213: Google fiber is coming to town though, so after this season of GoT is over, I might hang loose and see what Time Warner is willing to do to keep me as a customer...
Jument: My wife and I watch a lot of TV. Don't hate us, we also do marathons and triathlons and both have decent jobs. Anyways, I want to cut the cord because cable costs too damn much. Currently we have cable Tivos which are awesome, primarily because WAF is high and I rarely need to help my wife with anything.The thing I'm worried about is that once the cord is cut our TV will come from a number of different sources. I am worried that my wife will not be happy and that I in turn will not be happy because I'm constantly going to have to help her. Is there a solution (perhaps Roku?) that I should be looking at to make cordless TV a pain-free experience?
