The other 200 million Americans... no way could I be without my TV.
Yeah, my wife and I watch a lot of TV too, but we don't subscribe to cable to do it. Most popular major network shows can be watched for free in high def via the internet 1-2 days after they air. NBC lets you watch their shows (with commercials) directly from their website in high quality...for free.
For networks that don't do something like that...there's always downloading them 5 minutes after they finish airing.
Lets also not forget that with a cheap antenna you can pick up a lot of channels in high def for free. The closer you live to a large city, the more free channels you get.
