    Comcast...and allot of these stations have become Spanish speaking. If they didn't bundle it with the phone & Internet, I would get rid of them.

    We don't. We live stream some shows over the internet. Mostly,when we do watch TV, it's things like RFD and old shows like Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Big Valley, Adam 12, Dragnet, Marty Stuart, Hee Haw, Porter Wagoner, The Wilburn Brothers, sports, Hank Parker, Roland Martin, and various hunting and fishing shows, etc.

    Our kids grew up without TV, so they really don't watch much at all. My daughters like the horse shows on RFD and my wife and I watch a little more, ourselves.

    Mostly, I prefer to listen to old radio shows, anyway

    We share a beach house with my sister and her husband and, because we let him take care of the cable down there, we have the mega package where we get pretty much every channel known to man.

    We cut the cable a while back and never replaced it
    We're up + 50 bucks a month without it.

    We pop in a DVD once in a while.

    Don't really miss TV much - cep' during football season.

    Cable, but I watch most of my TV through online streaming. Not much that I enjoy watching comes on the channels we get. Online I can choose what to watch anytime.

    I have a DirecTV dish. Of course, there is very little that is fit to watch because of all the filthy language, which is getting continually worse. I don't know how many movies I've started watching and turned off after a few minutes when someone (often the main character) used the Gd phrase. The "f" word is being used on TV, the SOB phrase is used excessively, along with other phrases that use "God" in them.

    "Gone with the Wind" was the first time a cuss word was used on TV--mild enough and tolerable, but they didn't stop there. Now there is very little I care to watch.

    I record everything I think I might want to watch and end up deleting much of it because of having already seen it several times, because it's boring, or because of filthy language--most often the last one.

    We use Cablevision but just the basic family package. We don't get any specialty channels other than things like HGTV, Disney and the like.

    Time-Warner, which is about to be purchased by Comcast, at which time I will be praying fervently for Google Fiber to make it's way to our neighborhood. For some reason, Google chose to debut this service in Kansas City, and to my knowledge they haven't started building a network anywhere else.
