    Anybody cut their cable

    I am seriously contemplating doing so.

    As I have netflix, amazon prime, I figure if I get hulu I should be covered.

    Now that I finally got a VPN, I am thinking of doing just that.
    I watch most stuff online via torrents but that isnt always reliable. But I didnt have access to Amazon Prime, Hulu etc b/c I'm Canadian so I hesitated.

    i cut mine a few years ago. i have a roku and a blu-ray player w/ a bunch of apps. i'm not big into watching tv, but i do get hooked on a few shows. i'm good to go and it's one less expense

    you don't have to disrespect or insult others simply to hold your own ground. if you do, that shows how shaky your own position is.

    It's been about 2yrs now since I cut my cable best thing I ever did, Roku is the way to go. I got Netflix and a sports package with Dishworld, Dishworld comes with Bein sports and Oneworld Sports all the football I need, I also get Willow which is a cricket channel. I'm not a big TV fan so it works for me, my wife and kids more watch the movie stuff on Netflix.

    yea, i'm addicted to NatGeo Wild... especially Dr. Pol, Love that show... So i dunno how thats gonna work out if i cut my cable.. although i have contemplated many times cutting it, especially at times i was able to stream ballgames on my computer and some shows on cable channels as well... one time i watched SVU on my computer and USA simultaniously. Its hell searching for good streams though...

    but yea i do want to cut my cable...

    My friend who was living in India at the time recommended the tunnel that she used so she could watch American shows while abroad. I think it cost me less than $30 for the year subscription. It is inexpensive.

    All the shows I like are in those speciality cable packages. You cant just pick and choose which channels u want in ur packages up here so you end up with a cable bill over $100 just to watch 4 channels you really like. So I stick to Tv Torrents for the most part.

    i need cable for the music choice channels since i don't listen to the radio
    you ALL AGREE with my opinion, which is why NONE of you ever EFFECTIVELY DISPUTE IT

    you ONLY have faith in the WOMEN'S ability to ELEVATE which is why you only FOCUS ON WOMEN...you ALL have long given up on Black men

    you just don't have the BALLS to OVERTLY AGREE....rather just do it INDIRECTLY

    weak men only can deal with weaker women

    in the presence of strength you diminish...
