Life without TV

March 22nd, 2010 at 02:16 am

Now that I have high speed internet again I wonder if I will watch tv much. Its been off 12 of the last 14 days. And the two days it was on was for 2 half hour shows. I finally just unplugged it to save on the electricity (tv, vcr, dtv, dvd). Hey, phantom electricity is expensive over time.

I can watch HULU, youtube for music and old movies (old movies can be 1-2yrs old). I read, visit family/friends, work, and work on my projects (soldier/food pantry) and I am thinking of adding the local dog/cat rescue to my projects. I am more productive and feel better about myself and my accomplishments when the tv is off. I admit that at times I watched for hours with little to nothing to show for it. Not a good feeling.

    We have tv through the university, but we never watch it. I love watching hulu, netflix, and other streaming tv. I'm never going to pay for tv.

    It's possible to not watch TV. We have a set but only to hook up a DVD player, VHS player, or a Wii. In 2008 we watched four hours of television. In 2009 we watched an hour, but only because we were at a relative's house at the time and she had the set on.
