Review: Life Without Satellite TV Not Worth Savings

PHILADELPHIA — It's Day One of a weeklong experiment to see if I could live without satellite TV.

That means I have to wait a day before I can watch the season ender of "Heroes" to learn whether Hiro Nakamura, trapped in time 16 years ago, can escape to the present and destroy a formula that, in the wrong hands, would plunge the world into chaos.

The show will start to be available online a day after its Monday evening broadcast on NBC.

Bummer.

I rarely watch TV when it's busy at work and I have so much to do at home. And I lived without cable for about 4 years. But I couldn't live without internet....

there isn't anything really on anyways.... and we still get a lot of channels... cable was expensive and we didn't watch half the channels so I canceled it because it was a waste of money..

I still see all the shows I want to watch....

Impossible and not worth living.

It's, like, one of life's most basic necessities, right alongside air, water, food,

shelter, clothing, and broadband Internet. :jest:

DVR is (IMO) one of the great inventions of the last decade (or so) - especially with its integration into program schedules. Wonderful for 'time shifting' your TV viewing habits. We almost never watch live television any more. :thumbs:

cable/satellite is one of those things I really don't wanna live without. dvr i'm just now getting used to, so i guess i could go back to not having it, although I'm really enjoying recording and watching whenever i want without commercials.

Yes, and what's dvr?

I barely watch any TV anyway unless it's Dr Who or Top Gear.

Just googled DVR and yeah I could probably live without it. I use iplayer anyway if I do miss a BBC programme.

While we like to watch TV/Cable and use the DVR once in a while, we could live without it. I have spent more than 2 years without a TV and I was totally fine (as long as I have the Internet to waste my time it's fine) We have cable because my husband works for the company who provides it, so we have it for free. But he said more than once that if he didn't get it for free, we probably wouldn't have it.
