Life Without Cable TV

September 6th, 2008 by Rose DesRochers · 4 Comments

April 24-30 is the official TV Turn Off Week! I’ve been cable tv free for years now. I recently met a new friend. My husband and I had her and her husband over for a visit this evening. He could not believe that we did not have satalite or cable tv.

We cancled our satalite quite a few years ago now. Our reason was due to the sex that plague television programming.

Did you know that according to stastics that in a year, the average child spends 900 hours at school and 1023 hours in front of a television.

Cable television/ Satalite is something I have lived without for a long time now and I don’t miss it. I do miss the days when we had shows like Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, and The Brady Bunch. I would sooner purchase a box dvd set of Happy Days and watch that then get cable or satalite back.

Shawn misses his Tech Tv, which switched to g4techtv and I think is now off the air.

My son gets a few chanels on his tv in his room, but he spends most of his free time reading.

Do you have cable tv or satalite? If you do, how many hours do you think you spend watching TV a day?

If you liked this post, why not buy me a coffee?

    I spend a lot of time watching T.V, but most surfing the web. There are at least a 100 ‘free’ channels out there on KU band satellites and a lot on C band satellites, it’s a hobby of mine, there is a lot of christian programming out there and the arts, entertainmenst and some oldies like you described on Galaxy 10, I believe it is Galaxy 18 now located at 123 degrees west.

    But like you say it is good to read a lot when you can, I have cable but mostly watch my free to air channels, if it wasn’t for high speed I would cancel the cable.

    I can sort of imagine what life would be like without cable or satellite.

    We have cable and turn the t.v. on just for background noise and lighting. If we watch, the Food Network, Travel Channel and Discovery Channels are our favorites. Most of the times, there’s nothing on t.v. so we’re seriously considering the idea of discontinuing our service.

    Without cable, we’ll have more time to read and work on our hobbies. Great post, Rose!

    I have Sky TV, Satellite. The only things that are REALLY worth it are some sports, and old repeats of terrestral TV classics! Other than that is is all adverts, adverts and more ***** with occasional bursts of programme!

    Rose, I called the cable company yesterday and tried to shut off our cable, leaving only the Internet access. They talked me into keeping our current services and lowered our bill. I’m such a pushover, LOL!!
