    My Parents Won't Pay Fo...

    My parents won't pay for it. They would not watch it since they don't watch TV that much. And we are only three. So it would be waste of money

    Long Time Running

    Cable hasn't lived in my house for years and years. In the beginning- No I won't start reading the Bible- the whole though of getting cable had me shrugging my shoulders. There were no good TV shows on at the time that I felt compelled to follow every single day. I was more of a...

    Don't Really Want It

    If we had cable in the house, I'd probably watch it, but I really don't care that we don't have it. I can keep myself entertained fine without any TV at all, let alone one with a zillion channels.I'm fine with the handful of network channels I get.  I don't need any more.

    Haven't Had Cable In Almost 10 Years

    I don't really watch a lot of tv anyway.  Even when I had cable, I was usually only watching CNN and The Weather Channel.  Sometimes I'd watch TLC or Discovery, though I really don't put a lot of faith in their "educational" programming.  The internet has...

    And Don't Really Care

    I barely watch tv anyways, as long as I can see a few shows I'm good, I spend more time online or on the phone when I'm home.

    Yes, I don't have cable. Honestly that's a twisted question. "You Don't Have Cable?" Good example of how it would be so easy to answer wrongly, I almost instinctively put "No". EP staff, murder the algorithm, put it out of its misery. Please!

    I Like Not Having Cable

    If I had cable, I'd probably turn into a terrible bum.  I have my parents to thank for not having an addiction to cable TV.  I grew up watching Wheel of Fortune, the news, an The Young and the Restless - but only if I stayed home sick from school.  My sister and I...

    Anything Worth Watching Is Downloadable

    If I ever want to watch TV again I'll get another expressvu dish. Maybe starchoice. Cable is a waste of money though. just about everything is on the internet and my monitor has better resolution than my tv, and my laptop has better sound with our speakers plugged in. I don't...

    I Will Not Use Cable Or Satelite Tv

    There Is No Cable

    There is no cable available where I live, it's either dial up or satellite for internet. It's never been available. I called every company in the area. I even went door to door to get enough names to convince a cable company to run lines. That was almost 3 years ago. Because I...

    Internet Killed Tv

    We don't do cable. It just isn't a luxury we want. There is Gamer mode. There is the Internet for everything else. There are dvds and videos. No bs mind-control, mass marketing crap!!

    Never Have Had

    i just wouldnt get the time for it all, i always have too much to do, the thought of sitting down and watching hundreds of channels seems pointless. There is so much to be had out there.
