Could You Give Up Cable Completely?

Reader Redux: On Quitting Cable

Last week's news that the number of cable TV subscriptions is going down — maybe for the first time ever — got me thinking. Could I ever ditch cable for good? I was surprised to find out that over half of you have already canceled your subscriptions! Here's more of what you had to say — I must admit, I'm now giving it some serious consideration!

Could you ditch cable completely?

  • "Yes, I would and I have before. If I weren't living with my boyfriend, I wouldn't have cable." — a1stbornunicorn
  • "I have cable, but with all the content we can get online these days, and Netflix disks plus Netflix streaming through my Wii... I'm feeling more and more like maybe I don't need cable." — suziryder

Check out more of your thoughts after the break.

  • "I don't have a TV, so we don't have cable either and are plenty happy without either." — exchequette
  • "If money was tight, cable would be the first to go. I can't live without internet." — millarci
  • "I'm about to get rid of my cable in two weeks when I move. The last time I moved I went cable free for a little over a year and was fine. I just worry about my bf, who loves to watch sports. If only I could get an a la carte package where you choose what channels you want." — tarabara1229

I just moved with my boyfriend and we chopped some things out to make room for our mortgage. One of the first things to go was cable, but with Netflix and Hulu plus on the PS3 we don't miss cable at all!!!
