We haven't had broadcast TV since 2007. We moved and got cable for less than a year. Prior to that, we had never had cable.
Shortly after we dropped cable we signed up with Netflix streaming for about $8 a month. It's great! No commercials!
We do miss the PBS shows, but a lot of those end up on Netflix too. And, if we want to see a game, we head to the local coffee shop and/or bar.
