Can you live without Cable TV?
A month ago my wife and got rid of cable. I felt it was a complete waste of time and not worth the $40 a month we were paying for it. At the time, I was pretty busy and did not even notice that we did not have cable anymore. I am in my new house now and we still do not have cable. The other day my wife hooked up the antenna and found we get a few garbage channels. I am still rather annoyed at this move. Watching crap like wife swap is not my idea of well used time. But as my wife watches TV, I can do catch up on reading or play Total War Rome

My question to you all is Can you live without Cable TV?

Most of it. I would miss some of the documentary channels and the old movie channels.

However my life would be hell or made hell without my wifes ability to watch Soaps on Univision and the other Spanish Channels. And the youngests losing Dora and Blues Clues I prefer not to think about.

I never had it as a kid, so I never thought about getting cable at all. Now the Girlfriend has a different opinion altogether.

When I was a kid, we had two channels and they were local and terrible. When cable came along it was like walking out of the desert into an air conditioned (that's another story itself) room. I'd hook it up intravenously if I could. I just block out the channels I don't need.

I am old enough to remember a time before television, when it was a treat to sit down and listen to the radio on a cold wet winters night.

That's the way I wish it was now adays. I remember when I was a kid, everyone was out side playing stickball, riding bikes and playing backyard football. Now it's TV, playstation and the internet 24/7. It seems Kids won't walk 250 yards down the street to a freinds house.
