1 year without TV......
I just realised the other day that we have been without our TV connection for just over 1 year.
It was a decision we made when we moved out to the country last year. After the last of the boxes were emptied from the moving truck and we had set up the lounge we decided to give the idea of no TV a try. We love our movies though and watch DVD's. We also belong to an online DVD rental company and have them delivered which is great as we never seemed to get them back to the store on time and sometimes we never even got round to watching them.
It took me 3 months to cancel our Sky (cable/satellite) subscription as I was convinced we where going to connect back up. 1 year on and we are still TV/advertisement free. I don't miss it but I know the kids would probably say yes to connecting up again although they have never asked too. I wondered the other day if the TV aerial even works!
I don't like all of the advertising and hate it when I'm watching a great movie and it stops every 15 minutes to fit in the ad breaks. And these days it is so easy to catch up on the news online.
So for now we will continue to be TV free. It has definately been alot easier than I intially thought.
Are you TV free in your household? Have you ever tried going without TV?
