A week without cable.

What? We don't have cable?

That's about how we feel this week. There was one little glitch when MIL called Hubby to ask him to record something from ESPN, since she is off on a camping trip. He told her we ditched cable. I don't guess she was too upset or she would call someone else to get them to record it. She has other kids and they probably have cable or satellite.

We have not missed anything that we don't get. The only show I haven't seen is Mad Men and I never watched it on Sunday nights anyway. I always watched it the next weekend on Comcast's On Demand. Now I will just watch it on-line. No biggy.

So, we are fine with no cable.

Oh and for anyone that decides to buy a Roku and try Hulu Plus, don't sign up for Hulu Plus until you get your Roku. When you activate the Roku, you get an offer for a free MONTH trial of Hulu Plus. Wish we had known.

We are enjoying Hulu Plus. If you want to stream it through a device you already have, you can go here and use my referral link for a free 2 week trial.

And if you decide to buy a Roku, you can use this link to get $5 off. I will get an Amazon video credit. We bought the least expensive Roku...the "Purple Box"... and it is great.

Off to watch Dancing with the Stars on our FREE network tv channel.

I would "do" Roku too but we can't get a signal downstairs. Now ask me why. Our wonderful neighbor lets us use there WiFi so it all free. The only downside is no signal downstairs. It's amazing though everyone has lived without "tv" for quite some time now. Amazing! DJ complains every once in a while. I told him he can have whatever he wants in his house and feel free to move out. LOL he said he wants to live here forever cuz its free. Cheap brat. I had to laugh and I told him that the plan is to charge him so much that he will want to move out. He quit smiling them.

I would go bonkers without t.v. It's been my constant friends since 1968.
Way to go!

I've got too many cheapskates but complainers in the house. If any of them went without Snooky or Jesse Stone for too long, some few would just blow gaskets...

Amen to DJ having whatever he wants when he pays for it. LOL!

Frances said...

Mark, I have had that relationship even longer than you!

McVal, I was surprised that Hubby was the one that suggested ditching cable. But he is fine without it.
