The Great Experiment

Like the Falcon when Lando's done, we don't have a dish anymore.
Most of you probably don't know this, so I figured that I would clue you in. Due to a variety of factors, not the least of which was an attempt to save money, we got rid of satellite TV in mid-December. Since then we have been using streaming services (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime) which we already had as well as HD antennas that I got for a fairly reasonable price on Amazon. I am pleased to announce that, two months in, we're not missing it a bit. No, we don't get to watch all the programs that we used to, but we're watching a lot (and I mean A LOT) of old school programs, such as Hill Street Blues.

Now, I'm not a huge sports guy. I watch the occasional sporting event, if I'm in the mood, so those that absolutely MUST follow their team might not want to try this. However, if you are willing to deal with limited broadcast TV and already have streaming services, then I would highly recommend this. Get yourself an indoor HD antenna and you might just find some interesting sub-channels out there.
