Ditch the TV


Are you a TV watcher? Every once in a while – usually this time of year when there is nothing on but re-runs of crap that I already avoided last year – I wonder why I continue bothering to watch TV. I know people who don’t, and certainly days and weeks fly by where I watch the news and little else. I am tempted to get rid of it, or save a few dollars by ditching cable at least. It’s a challenge, because cable is where my favourite channels are …but those channels are rife with old programs and re-runs too. As long as I don’t sit down in front of it I don’t get sucked in and then I get plenty of other things done; some writing and reading, things around the house and maybe a visit to the beach.

I think it’s time to ditch the TV.

Let's not be too hasty can we just ditch the cable instead?

What Ant said - I'd hate to miss out on Pushing Daisies and Chuck, y'know.

Ditched mine 6 years ago and haven't missed it once. I can watch DVDs on my PC so I can still watch movies.

We went two years without realising we weren't watching TV channels any longer... we were just watching DVDs. We ditched the channels but kept the TV, and now we just watch whatever we hire from the rental store. My husband even dismantled the aerial.
