Like a lot of people my age I’m contemplating cutting the cord so to speak. Basically I want to stop paying for TV and use the old school bunny ears and return to what will most like just be 3 channels. There was a time after all when we didn’t pay for television at all. It was FREE! Remember that. The only reason to pay for it now is if you want the extra channels. Just like it has always been. Unless you sadly live in an area where you can’t even get good reception than I’m of course talking out my backside.
The reason I’d like to drop it is simple really. I just don’t watch that much TV any more. Now don’t get me wrong, I have and love Netflix and would probably have Crave TV and Amazon Prime Video if I had anything other than a phone and tablet that could play them. I did the math, most of the shows I want are on two channels. Channels that I should be able to get with an antenna. The problem though is how to record them. See that’s the only thing holding me back. How do I record them.
There are many PVR/DVR options out there but they are massively expensive. I could with a little technical know how and still a bit of money could actually make one all on my own. I’m still stuck in a situation of spending money to save money. Which doesn’t really make sense.
