We finally did it. We cut the cable yesterday. Got tired of paying nearly $100 a month for service when we watched maybe one or two cable programs per night average - and many of those were on PBS - which is free. When nothing was on, which was quite often, we'd watch a Netflix movie (DVD or instant).
Went to antennaweb.org to get the info on an antenna, direction to aim it, available channels, etc. The new indoor/outdoor antenna (which I put in the attic) and RG-6 cable to connect it to the TV cost less than what we'd pay for a month of cable service and we get over 40 channels. Some are Spanish language, or shopping, or kids channels but free is free.
To make this sort of bicycle related I'll say that at least we get Universal Sports so I can watch the Giro, Vuelta, and other bike races, some delayed, some live. I guess I'll have to look into Versus, CyclingTV, or some other online streaming service to watch the TdF live next July.
