This!!
Actually 3 years ago. I definitely can live without cable SO has mentioned getting cable so he can watch tv when he comes over. Since he's paying, I'm fine with it. All I honestly want anyway is internet. He's also mentioned the roku so I guess we will see.

cable free for at least 2 years now.... 
 
comcast is not completely out of my pocket tho...because I have them for internet.  Iive tried others but I still prefer comcast for streaming.  i could actually use my cell as a hotspot...but my home security and home wireless music/speaker system requires wifi from a router device.  if i could figure out how to route my cell wifii thru a router device i could fire comcast all together...hmmmm
 
i have cheapo laptops (with over the air antennas made for pcs) connected to my tvs via hdmi.  I use windows media (standard on most pcs now) to watch free over the air channels (about 30 or so) as well as record from said channels just like dvr. 
 
I also have Netflix, hulu+ and graboid at the present time only for guest really....especially the kiddies...I cant have them seeing tittay/dack ads poppin up when they simply trying to watch hanna montanna...lol
 
i can deal with the inappropriate ads myself.  so, i prefer to watch most of my shows that don't come on over the air channels via tubeplus.me

samone he is probably thinking about sports...
 
that is the only thing i think is somewhat lacking at my house.  which i don't care lol.
 
i did find a few sites that allow you to watch sports real time.  but the quality is craptastic...

on second thought...for my home security i would still need internet because if i am not in the house my cell phone hot spot wouldn't be here either.  obviously, i need the home security to work even when the cell phone is the house.  but i could downgrade to a slower speed...

I don't have cable. Just comcast internet, which also includes local channels, xfinity streampix (like netflix) and hbo. And I watch most of my shows online. My bill is $40. I like that I have no more commercials, but it is weird as well since I never know about movies that are coming out unless it is posted on bhm or online somewhere. I do miss surfing channels and watching random stuff.

I use to watch all my shows online. I don't have internet right now but I'm paying about 50 a month for DISH

What sites are y'all using to stream? And what anti virus cause I use to get a lot of them before I found a good one to install

i can't drop mine, included in the rent. if i buy in a place where i live now it would be included in the HOA dues too. i'm not sure how comcast hooked that deal up, i'd never heard of it until i moved to this part of the country.
