Cut the cord (Dish) in November
I finally dropped Dish service in November. Most evenings there'd be nothing I wanted to watch on, even with 250 channels. Probably because of things like Discovery no longer showing documentaries, History no longer showing history, MTV/VH1 no longer playing music, Science turning into the "How It's Made" channel, AMC going commercial and no longer showing classic movies, IFC going commercial and no longer showing independent films, Game Show Network no longer airing old classic game shows, TV Land not airing NEAR the classic TV they used to, Discovery Health getting hijacked by Oprah, etc...
Don't have anything like Netflix either, because the quality is TERRIBLE on my DSL connection, near unwatchable.
Surprisingly, I find MORE than enough to watch on the 16 local OTA channels I get for free with the antenna on my roof!
