Next week, it will be one year since we cancelled our satellite and learned to live without a million channels. I just wanted him to try living without it. I asked him to turn it off for three months and if he truly missed it, get it back and I wouldn’t say another word about it. (Yea, right!)
Vince is a huge college football fan and right before football season, he decided to get Dish Network hooked up again but lucky for me, the installer didn’t show up when he had said he would be here, even though we sat home all day waiting for him. He didn’t call, he just never showed up so Vince said “forget it”. Yay!
Vince didn’t miss a single college football game that he wanted to watch so I think we’re done . . we’ll probably never have cable or satellite TV again.
We have watched some really good movies and series on Netflix or through Amazon Prime. We have Roku and we pay for an annual subscription to The Blaze. We’ve watched and both loved and looked forward to seeing the following:
- Friday Night Lights
- Burn Notice
We started watching Grey’s Anatomy but got bored with it. We tried watching Downton Abbey but I couldn’t understand their accents. Maybe I’ll try that again.
We’ve recently watched the following movies:
- The Rainmaker
- Lonesome Dove
- Breakfast at Tiffany’s
We didn’t cancel the cable because of money but if we were paying $80/month, we’ve saved close to $1,000. We already had Netflix, Amazon Prime and The Blaze so we were paying for those along with the cable.
It took a lot of years for Vince to try living without cable but now that he has made it almost a whole year, I think the habit is broken.
