On the blog I don’t get asked this question much, but whenever we have relatives or friends come over to the Airstream, we always get asked “Where’s the TV?” Well, folks, when we decided to pare down everything we owned, the TV didn’t rank high on the list. I haven’t had cable television in almost 10 years and George actually grew up without cable so we’ve been doing without it for quite a while. We had a television in our apartment before (just no cable), so when we moved into the Airstream we gave it to George’s parents.
I’ve never really missed TV and if I get the urge to watch it, I’ll just head over to Hulu or use my Amazon Prime subscription to watch some of their Instant TV or movies on my computer. I’m also an incredibly boring person who doesn’t enjoy sports and would much rather watch Antiques Roadshow. That helps too when deciding to cut the cord.
I think cutting cable is a growing trend among young people. Most of my friends don’t have cable anymore either! It’s a great way to save a little bit of dough each month too!
Thinking about cutting the cord? I’ve written about it before. It’s a great way to minimize distractions and stress too! Here’s some tips on how to live without it.
