 I don't subscribe to cable or satellite TV.
I don't even have those rabbit ears for the channels that are free.
My television viewing habits are strictly VCR or DVD.
Now there's no more commercials shouting at me to buy what I do not need,
but the advertising I could deal with. What would  depress the hell out of me,

would be the scrolls that would appear at the bottom or the top
of the screen on my TV.
I couldn't watch a love story or situation comedy
without those depressing scrolls constantly appearing on the screen of my TV.
...Baby found in dumpster...Woman raped by monster...
...Stay tuned for news at eleven...
Since I stopped watching public television my TV viewing is now pure heaven.

    You got that right! We no longer have TV at our house. I do miss getting the weather and maybe a bit of news. But I don't miss it THAT much. All that Programming us to buy this and that, telling us how we should think and act, oh I am so happy to be free of all that! Joined Netflix and love it. :) Tanya

    Staying with my sick father... He doesn't want the TV or radio on... and I seldom leave his side... I miss the important news like Sandy... But don't miss the politics, rapes, murders, and cop shows... REALLY don't miss the commercials... I do miss using the computer... But when he naps... I run for Poetry Soup... ove you guys.

    We just got cable for the first time ever about 3 months ago, and I still don't find much to watch.

    You should come to my house where the clicker is part of my husbands body. If you watch TV you can be sure you will be rolling thru all the channels every few minutes. Never could figure out how he watches anything . I do not watch a lot of TV and would miss the computer more than the TV.
