When we moved to NY, we had to leave Cox Internet behind and switch to Comcast Internet. For a couple of years, now, we’ve gone without cable TV service. It was getting too expensive, so we’ve watched Netflix dvds and used the Vudu app on our TV. T.J. can also hook up the laptop to the TV with some fancy cable so we can watch shows available online. We used to use some gaffe-job looking indoor antenna, but that’s been out of commission since we moved to hilly Brewster (thank goodness, because I was getting sick of looking at a paper-thin antenna taped to the wall).
When we first moved, T.J. was worried that streaming would be a problem. We don’t have the best wireless router, and we moved to a much bigger place, where the router is on a different floor. (I’m not sure that matters, and I’m not sure T.J. knows either, but I just humor him by letting him worry and come up with solutions to problems that might not even be there). In any case, Comcast is better than he thought. We don’t even get the most expensive internet package (I think it’s called Performance), but every video we’ve streamed over the past three months has been clear, with no lag to speak of.
Now, T.J. is rethinking the whole no-cable-TV lifestyle. When any of our parents visit, they don’t have much to watch after the baby goes to sleep. T.J. can’t watch sports, and I can’t watch my Bravo shows. So, maybe this fall, we’ll go for the limited-basic cable package. That way, we can watch how bad the Sox play, and T.J. can yell at the Pats when they choke in the playoffs…again.
So, what kind of TV service do you have? I’m listening…and maybe T.J. is too!
