It's a silly thing to blog about on Sparkpeople, but it's on my mind this morning. My DishNet bill has gone up again, now I'm paying nearly $60 a month (for the cheapest package!) and am being told that's a "good deal!" REALLY???
It doesn't feel so good. I figure I have about 6 TV shows I regularly watch, and this puts the cost of those shows at $10 each! Now 2 of them are on regular network TV, one of them I'm starting to get a little burned-out on, and then there's "Justified," which isn't streaming on Hulu right now. It's a great show, but is it REALLY worth the money? And I used to be a big fan of the History Channel, but the shows they've been showing lately are CRAP! I mean, "Pawn Stars", what's historical about that???
A problem with dropping cable is, my TV is old, not an HD tv, and I don't have an antenna either, so if I completely drop cable I probably won't be able to watch local tv stations either. There are 3 things I should be doing every night after getting home from work & making dinner: practice my guitar, exercise, and work on this book I'm supposed to be writing. Granted, I could put 1 hr into each of those, and no tv would help. I don't know, I'm still kicking around the idea - anyone out there cut the cable and survived? Some thoughts would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
