When I was living on my own, I didn’t get cable. I didn’t even have decent local channels because my previous condo didn’t allow an antenna outside the unit. So I made do with internet and my laptop.
When R and I moved in to our rental, we decided that we will not be getting a cable connection. But we did buy an antenna which we attached to our 3rd floor’s terrace. We used to watch ANC in the morning during his previous shift (1pm-10pm). But now we sometimes watch local news at night, not always because it stresses the heck out of both of us. We just have an internet connection.
R connected the tv, mac mini, and Kinect to the internet, bought a wireless keyboard and bluetooth mouse, and we download, stream, and watch movies and series in our tv – better than local channels to me!
As we realized that we liked this setup, we decided that we won’t be getting cable for our future home. We’re just going to watch all our favorite shows and movies online.
Mico and I watching Grey’s Anatomy’s previous season. There’s the wireless keyboard and bluetooth mouse on the wooden table. Our printer, also shown, is also connected to the internet so we can print from any device at home (I’m proud because I couldn’t do those things myself haha!). R gifted us a two-seater recliner chair last Christmas for our movie and series marathons.
