I Did It: I Cut the Pay TV Cord

I finally did it; I returned the Cable box and cut the pay TV cord. I realized after three months I have not turned on the cable TV box.

My reasons to ditch cable TV is are as follows. First is the insane cost for cable TV packages. For me, in my area, digital cable to get all the hot shows cost around  $60.00+ a month, yes I could get a deal but I will still paying $300 +  just to  look like  I am in the know  around the water cooler. I am trying to live within my means and cable TV is a budget killer.  Second reason is the quality of TV shows has gone downhill lately.  I use to like the shows on Scifi channel like Batlestar  Glatica  and Doctor Who, documentaries  on Discovery  and History channels. What I dislike is the rash of so called reality shows like the Amish Mafia, Fast and Loud, and all those stupid guns shows with the fake explosives. By the way I am proud to say I neither watched one episode of Duck Dynasty nor desired to do so.  I feel so call reality TV has dumb down television. Finally via the internet Netflix, Hulu, ITunes   and Crackle,   can watch the shows I want to watch when I want to watch and mostly commercial free.

So good by HD cable box, I hardly knew thee.
