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.
