I think it was 2003 when I quit TV watching and switched to internet watching. Got my first desk top PC in 1996 and used the free KMART software as my ISP using dial up service. I switched to Cincinnati Bell DSL about two years later. Around 2006 I found out that the new affordable LCD TVs could be hooked up to PCs and used as a monitor. My first was a 27" Westinghouse
followed in a few years by a 32" Samsung I picked up at a pawn shop for $200 out the door. I think I went with Time Warner cable around 2010 because of greater speed for the same price. Still with them after they tried to raise my rates for the second time. They were wanting to bump me to $48 a month. I called to cancel saying I would not pay that much and they took me back to the intro price of $39.95 that I started with. I'm running about
10.0 mbps download and about .97 mbps upload. I got put on disability around 1/1/2010 after getting severe COPD and having a heart attack and getting a triple bypass done on 10/14/2009. Thanks VA.I was 56 and unemployed when this hit. There are plenty of free movies and documentaries
to be found on the net. I am a addict as I spend over 12hrs a day on my PC.

I picked up a ROKU this year, hooked it up, lowered my Dish package, and watch movies on ROKU.

Only Satelite stuff I watch is News, and Saturday morning westerns.:D

My girlfriend's kids also shut down all TV abilities and now use whatever source they find on the web. For me, it is too much work and I am just use to turning on the TV and flipping channels.

No way I'm watching a tiny screen ...

The feeling of sitting back in my recliner with my beverage of choice next to me while watching a game are movie on the 70"TV on the wall is relaxing.. I wouldn't trade it for nothing

I've never tried watching anything on the web,it's always been TV (now satellite) but other than Sports or News it's usually reruns of a series or an older movie.
