Two words people: NET. FLIX. (or, if unavailable in your area, DVD's in general)

I don't even bother with broadcast or cable tv anymore. The only time this bothers me is when I want to watch a sports game live. Since sports bars are not really an option for me right now!

True, but since NO ONE else in my house watches sports it is sometimes the only way I can be around other people trying to watch the game. I think it just depends which bar you go to. Plus, I am a fan of adding alcohol to sports. Razz

HAHA! so am I...that was how my room mate suckered me into watching NFL for the first time, he kept feeding me beer. It was like a Pavlovian type thing, I watched NFL, i got beer!

Now I can watch it without the beer, it's odd

We haven't had TV for 2 years now, I'm debating whether it is worth getting when we move into the new house.

That said our DVD collection is now massive!

Yeah, we've really only got the tv for DVD's and video games. We got the basic cable package so I can watch the news channels, but I think that might be on it's way out before too long.

We have a gigantic TV (seriously, it's huge, but it was cheap) that is for TM to play Guitar Hero on and for us to watch DVDs on.

no cable, no dish, no nothing.

my sister-in-law thinks this is very strange...

Oh, and we also have Netflix Smile love Netflix.

I have no patience for advertising now, especially the crappy USA ads!

So yeah only way I would get TV is if we got like Tivo or a skybox so I could automatically record stuff watch it when I wanted to without advertising, honestly though it is probably cheaper in the long run to continue buying box sets from walmart for $20 each

oh my word, yeah. when TM was at work and I was in the hotel in NYC, I watched some TV but I ended up getting so frustrated with the ads that I went back to my laptop and Netflix!!

I was watching The Simpsons earlier, and they played the same Tim Hortons commercial 5 times in the breaks (I counted) for a half hour show, that's pretty damn ridiculous!

the BBC is another thing we can't get in Canada...mind you there's a BBC Canada station, but because it's Canadian, there are still commercials, and it also costs a shit load to get

Yeah it bugs me that they chop the commercials into the 1 hour programs so you miss bits of them!

Our Bro in law has that channel, though I'm disappointed the only good program it shows is Top Gear, none of the documentaries get aired on it etc.

I miss the BBC greatly!

the UK has so many better shows than the crap that's on here

My family used to have an old tv with an antenna that lived in the kitchen that would pick up one or two Canadian channels. Is Corner Gas still around?

Oh, Corner Gas!

My family loves Corner Gas, I think they've watched every single season (DVD) at least twice.
My parents attended college in Saskachewan so they like seeing the prairie Smile

i think the only Canadian shows that i've ever really liked are Kids Of Degrassi Street, Degrassi Jr. High and Degrassi High (I used to have the biggest crush on Caitlyn) but definitely not the New Degrassi crap, as cheesey as the originals were, at least it was realistic
