I ditched Cable last year and said so long to those $100+ bills for 62 channels of BS and commercials. I simply hooked my docking station for my laptop up to my TV's VGA port and was off and running.

Then I got the $35 Chromecast and Sh!t got hella real! Now I just broadcast my shows/movies through my desktop straight to my TV! The quality is HD, way better than VGA.
I watch my movies/tv shows through sites like:
http://vodly.to/
http://www.movie25.so/
http://videobull.com/

I will never EVER pay a cable bill for as long as I live. I have DSL at the crib and my bill is like $30/mo plus tax/fee's.

We did!

It's been about 3 months and it's not bad. The first month was rough because I was so use to coming home and watching cable. Everything is online these days so no need for cable.Thumbs Up

I'd have to have some really good books to give up Directtv...
I make sure I get my money out of it cause $180.00 a month is a grip and I use their search function for an hour a week cause I Dvr alot of shows.

i dropped comcast almost a month ago but then i would come home and not have anything but my spotty, bootleg tethered internet from my phone to computer to entertain me. i was sitting around in silence which was torture. 

i don't even like tv much but i need to background noise so i ended up getting comcast again but only with the basic basic local channels. and the slowest internet which is just as fast as my super mega high speed connection. bullsh*t lol. my bill was cut in half yeah!

anyway, i ordered the cable cord thingy from amazon so i can watch housewives and sh*t on my tv from the computer when i'm home. it should be here any day now.

Just get an antenna. You'll get the same stations for free.

If you have an older model tube tv then you'll need the digital converter too. But it will still work out cheaper.
