have you found that over time you've just plain stopped really having the same diet for consuming shows/movies?
i know my habits have been streamlined, and i just feel weird sitting down to look at tv more than once a week. When i was younger i used to BE the tv guide, now i just watch a show whenever. i'd probably get rid of netflix if my SO didn't watch it.
The last thing i watched was Luke Cage, and before that i hadn't touched it for 8 months.
Called Comcast to change plans. Talked them down a little over $100 per month. May reduce it even further once I figure out the best way to keep them premium up/down Internet speeds we currently get as part of the package.
As much as I want to be around for all of the great programming that is occurring these days, I want to exercise, read, and be out in them volunteering streets more.
NetFlix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime may be all we need. I'll just have to watch Showtime and HBO shows later than I normally would. I am considering getting the HBO Now subscription though since it's less than $20 per month.
Just found this and am about to go through it to see if it helps because I'm not cutting it out altogether. Not at all!

I recently found myself around cable tv again for an extended amount of time. I started watching the Scientology channel and MSNBC. I like that Martin plays back to back so often, but New Looney Tunes is defamation and the commercials on all networks are much too crafty and catchy now.
Everything has been figured out except how to live.

but I missed on a lot so I would listen to the same few albums
When iTunes dropped i spent more money but it was specifically what I wanted to hear.
It’s been so long since I had cable and when I go to my fam for the weekend and they have cable I realize there is a lot of shit I have no interest in. I always end up using Netflix or whatever that thing isn’t called that has the cable shows you can watch immediately on their network servers.
Unless it’s sports I can’t see any reason for someone to have cable.

...it's seems like all the good tv programming is gone from regular tv stations (NBC, ABC, CBS, & Fox), I've never been a fan of sitting down to watch tv on my computer, and I still don't have a smart tv, just regular extended cable.
With Netflix taking the good scripted shows, it's become more of reality & celebrity (needs work to keep their bills paid) shows fest, I probably watch maybe five out of a hundred of these shows (anything that deals with Chef Ramsey, The Braxtons Family Values, Property Brothers, Storage Wars, People's Court, & Growing Up Hip-Hop) but most of the shows I watch heavily I've been watching for years and most of those are cartoons & anime, the only shows I still look forward to that's still putting out new episodes that's not cartoons is NCIS: New Orleans, Dr. Bull, 9-1-1, Supernatural, Lethal Weapon, the new Magnum P.I., and that's it.
I've already changed up my cable plan & got rid of a few stations that I never watched like sports & TWC's/Spectrum's movie channel EpiX, to lighten up my bill a little; most of these channels are just now rerun type programming, and it's only so much of an old show you can watch over & over before it's just have no value to you anymore.
