said by Let it go :Interesting you mentioned that. We have never had Cable always used over the air (OTA). Several years ago the preamp on the outdoor antenna died during the winter. I was not about to go up on the roof until spring. No one really cared (wife and two older kids) as long as the Internet was working. This was before the days of Netflix and Hulu. Now if the Internet had gone down there would have been hell to pay.
Times are tough. We voted and the internet connection won over the $100 cable bill.
