OTA + Internet

After much research I dumped our ridiculously expensive cable and went to OTA, whatever isn't broadcast 'locally' I can get by other means. Locally meaning I have full HD reception (higher quality then cable I might add) from a radius of approx. 115 Miles. Just gotta make a few tweaks and should be good to go. Most of our favorite shows are broadcast locally on Global in HD, and the few like True Blood and Dexter I've just bought the BD for except for this season of course...but I get those elsewhere.

Maybe some day I will go back to cable...but I doubt it very much...it's hard to compete with FREE.

I don't mind commercials, but I get really upset when I am paying to watch them. Much the same reason I am about to dump Sirius, I love the Howard channels but I get extremely mad during the replays having to listen to the tonnes of commercials. I understand a live show needs breaks...but come on, a recording!?
