How many times have you been sitting in front of the television and flipping through your 200+ channels only to remark "there's nothing on?" I hate that. There's nothing worse than having all of those channels and not being able to find anything to watch. It's a waste of time and money.
So I cut the cord. Not literally, but I did have a friend once who was so perturbed at his cable service that he actually ripped the coaxial cable out of the wall and cut it. That's a little extreme in my book, but I did find a way to stop paying for cable and switch over to a digital alternative for just $7.99 a month. You can too.
