    Ugh, they've pissed me off over the past two days. I watch a lot of TV (I like to have it on) but honestly only have a few shows I watch on the regular (mostly on Showtime and HBO). IF I were to get rid of Cable, what are good ways to catch these shows live? I'd even consider going to a bar to watch them (there are a few in DC that have HBO, Madmen, etc. on Sunday nights) as it'd be cheaper or at least more social than watching at home.

    Haven't had cable since 2001. Use netflix and hulu. You'll adjust. It's tv. Not like you'll be on your deathbed wishing you had just caught one more episode of Breaking Bad.

    As opposed to watching it by myself at home? Yes.

    Bittorrent...that's how I watched Mad Men, The Walking Dead, etc. As my cable provider didn't carry them anyway.

    What about internet? I can stay with Comcast, but I'm thinking of totally cutting off from them. Is Clearwire any good? ON their website, it's $50 a month for 6MB/s which seems pretty low as I get 52MB/s right now.
