    I stopped a couple of years ago. Cable is so bad now its just ridiculous. With the internet, netflix, redbox, dvd's I have already, and video games, and my friend trying to convince me to watch Game of Thrones I'm more than good on video entertainment.


    These LCD's are hurting my eyes.

      I've been cable free for about 5 years. I just didn't see the point in paying for 200 channels when I only watched 5 of them. BTW, Icefilms is your friend

          Yeah no ****************. Why can't they just sell me a few channels for a few bucks? Like maybe 5 for $10 a month. They can turn individual channels on and off like HBO. I have a hard time believing that they can't just do that with all channels. Its like they want us to believe that computers don't exist and it would be too much work to keep up with all of that. BS!

            It's not like they negotiate with individual channels. They get them in packages much like you do. Just look at the DirecTV fiasco from a month or two ago.

              I wish this is how is worked. I'd be on board if I could only get like 4-5 select cable channels.

                They might have to eventually try to work something out because I know lots of ppl who have given up on cable. The main problem is how bad the programming is. Its like almost every show is some (fake) reality show just because they don't want to spend money to make something worth watching.

                  But if you think about it, everything eventually will just stream through the internet and cable providers will be obsolete. So we are just like ahead of everyone else with the whole dropping cable thing. I've always considered us to be, ya know, ahead of the game, maybe trend setters, not trend followers.

                        I killed the cable about 4 months ago. I opened a bill for $130 (basic cable and internet), thought about the fact that I hadn't watched even 5 minutes of cable in 3 months, and said "**************** this." I have Netflex, Youtube and Hulu via my Xbox 360 piped through a beautiful 52" plasma, and I have to say I'm completely happy. My bill is now $52 (internet only), and the cost of Netflix is almost nothing since I split an account with my brother.

                          That's basically the way to do it. I just use Netflix on my PS3 and then download the few shows I like from Icefilms or torrents and stream them to my PS3 from my PC using TVersity. For sports I just fire up JustinTV in the PS3's web browser and watch that way. It all works perfectly and other than the sports streams, I never have to watch or skip through any commercials

                                This is why cable companies would like to put a cap on your bandwidth if you use them as a cable and internet provider. Lots of people are dropping the cable service and using streaming entertainment instead and it's cutting into their business.
