I cut our cable and internet last year due to my divorce. The first few months were VERY hard to adjust to not having it anymore. But, we went and bought an antenna that receives digital signals and we're doing pretty good with it. We don't have any way to record shows, so if we aren't home when a show is on - we have to miss it. I like not having to pay out $100 or more dollars a month for the service though. We did find that we can use our cellphones as a modem with an application we downloaded. So, we do have internet access now - though we try and limit how much we use it since we don't want our cellphone company to catch on to what we're doing and charge us for data.

We turned off Direct Tv a few years ago. With the digital public Tv we ended watching a lot of PBS shows. Digital Tv gave us 4 PBS chanels, and they were always showing different shows. We whatched Antique Roadshow
