Well, we did it, Nin and I canceled Dish Network. Since I'd never been able to get them to come move my dish so the neighbour's tree in spring/summer didn't block my signal, and the many rate increases (for mostly channels I never watched), we decided to try out just using Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus, and an over the air antenna for a few weeks. Guess what? We didn't miss the dish. And $$$$ saved! So far, so good. Will see how we're liking it six months from now.

Oh, this interests me! How does the over the air TV work (isn't it weird to have to ask that?). I understand antennas don't have to go on the roof anymore?

I'm not sure I could give up Directv. I have too many shows I'm hooked on. But your plan sounds like it worked out for you and Nin.

I had to quit cable -- it was just so much money, and I hardly watched any of it. I got an antenna and I get 2 stations, so I have news and weather. And Netflix.

I think in a few more years, there will be big changes. At least I hope so. I know a lot of people who don't want to shell out for what they don't watch!
