It’s been a while. Hi.
We’ve lived cable free since last fall and, gotta be honest, we don’t miss it.
My kids love Netflix. There’s a lot to offer them right now and they have no idea that there is anything else out there, really.
As for the adults? The Tivo was a great idea. Really the lynchpin to the whole affair. Not that there is such great programming on the networks but, there’s just enough for two old Gen Xers to wrap around.
When it came time for The Walking Dead or Mad Men to come back, we just bought the episodes. The biggest downside is that we can’t watch a new episode until the following day. Talk about 1st world problems, right?
As for sports? The big events are on the big nets. And I’ve never really been one for golf, you know?
Bye bye, Satellite. You aren’t missed in the slightest.
One more thing:
Tivo’s latest update brought all the following apps together: Vudu, Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, Youtube. And, if you are interested in a show on one of those services, when you add your OnePass (the new Season Pass) you can include streams in your queue. They don’t take up space but you can get to that show immediately. I have no word on HBONow, however. I can’t imagine it won’t be far behind.
