    so I will have a lot more time to chat with you guys. I guess that is good in a way but if you don't know what I am talking about, let me tell you. ATT has cut all the Scripts channels, (Food network, DIY, HGTV and dozens more and the two Hallmark channels) Grrrrrr, all of these are what I watch since I am not into kill type movies, war movies (except John Wayne) and some of the horrible things on the air today. Sorry I just had to get that off my chest......now I will sleep better tonight.

    I really, really don't like TV !!!
    A million channels but nothing on, right??
    My DH and I like Turner Classic movies, I'm a baseball fanatic and now that's over for the season.

    I can't think of anything else I watch!!!
    I also don't worry that I'm missing anything lol

    That's what I said in about 2004 when I cancelled my cable and now only watch a few of my videos and CDs. Very few of them.

    Now I have much more time to sew and read.

    I almost never watch TV. My adult kids do. That's why I keep cable.

    Not a big TV watcher, but I did notice the Food Network was gone...made me mad. I thought I was losing my brain and had forgotten the right channel for it. But no, surfed through them all..twice..it wasn't there. I only watch two shows on it, but I like them a lot.

    I never miss NCIS...even the re-runs on USA. And a few programs on PBS. That's about it. The rest is junk as far as I'm concerned.

    my kids watch alot on HuLu..If it wasn't for DvR I'd never watch anything. Bones Criminal Minds NCIS ect...but I download podcasts from OldTimeRadio on my iPod and listen to that stuff mostly. I have to agree that most of the stuff on TV these days is junk -ola!

    Netflix instant view here. No cable. We do have an antanea and get the major networks: NBC, CBS and ABC. That's it and everyone seems fine with it.

    We changed from Comcast to WOW last spring to save some money. I'm still in the old days and use VCRs to tape most of my shows and watch them when I have time.

    Surprise to me. I was flipping thru the channel guide last night looking for something to watch and I stumbled onto an old Fons and Porter (still had Liz on) show, followed by a Scrapbooking show. They were on BYU, I think it is the Brigham Young channel. Mostly it had religious shows, but it did have those two shows. Hmmmm.
