I like the World Cup, which won't be on for a couple of years. I also like the Tour de France, but if I don't watch it, it's no biggie.

Given that he will still have his computer, he will be able to download various shows and watch them without a trip to the TV department at Circuit City.
but if he is saying he is simply not going to buy a TV when he moves north, then other than huddling around his PC (or using a projector)...then DVDs are out too.
It was actually a question of both. While yes, the financial expenditure of buying a new TV is not one I am looking forward to, It's a combination of both buying a TV and the fact that it tends to take time away from more meaningful pursuits which prompted my original question.
I think I might try not having the TV and see how it goes from there.
