Or, more accurately, life without satellite TeeVee, which I canceled exactly two weeks ago today. Here are the expenditures during that time period for our TeeVee programming:
** Five $1.99 episodes of Community on iTunes
** 1/2 of a Netflix subscription (approx $9.00)
Everything else we watched we watched over the airwaves (network TeeVee, local news), already paid for (episodes of Mad Men and the Killing on iTunes), borrowed an HBO Go password (Game of Thrones, Girls), or streamed for free online (South Park, Community, Euro 2012 games).
Getting off of pay-for-it TeeVee is among the best decisions we've made in a long time.
