Caps are not an issue for me
I subscribe to cable TV so caps are not an issue for me.
I'm watching the evening news while I'm writing this post. The DVR is nice as you can watch the shows on your schedule. I also fast forward commercials as well.
Sometimes I think of switching to DirecTV but it is cheaper to bundle TV, home phone, and Internet with Comcast.
I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner. They are much better than broadcast TV.
I have not and will not cut the cord.
