Does Anyone Like the Way Cable TV Operates?

We used to be one of the few holdouts regarding cable. These days I think that a lot of young people (and maybe some older ones) are also taking a step back from cable television, because they're trying to save money and cable has become so expensive that it's a bit of a luxury item. There are, admittedly, some shows I wouldn't mind seeing, but since we don't watch a ton of television, it's not cost effective for us.

Other people seriously dislike the way cable is bundled. Funny or Die did a cute video demonstrating what it would be like if other things in life worked the same way cable does.

I rarely watch free-to-air television, so pay TV would be such a waste for us.

Mary, I'm more of a reader, movie person myself. I watch television because my husband tapes a few of his favorite shows and we watch them together, but mostly we watch movies. Left to my own devices, I tend to choose books over television most of the time. And I have nothing at all against television. Maybe someday I'll choose a series, check it out from the library and binge watch it. I just like books and movies best.
