Sometimes when i go to my moms house i turn on the tv for a little bit, and just about every time it makes me happy that I've never paid for the service.
Its so much money, and there really is nothing worth it to me being broadcast.
The couple of shows i do find to be good are on premium cable, which i would never pay for, but can also be found by other legal means.
Cable was sold on the premise that because you pay for the subscription it would be commercial free, yeah, that lasted all of a few years in the 80s haha. So, bow your paying every month and
seeing adverts, and its mostly reruns.
So, the rabbit ears are worth it to have for local stations, and I've even considered buying a more legit antenna and getting boston stations, but i would never ever pay for cable tv.
