We Don’t Have Cable


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, Β 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.

About Mej

Hi! I'm Mej and that little guy is my dog, Mico. I used to write post mostly about beauty and a long time ago, just fashion, but that's going to change. So I could post more often, I've finally decided to post anything that catches my fancy - be it beauty, fashion, interior and facade design, married life and life in general, career, and even finance. It felt limiting to write just up to three topics - beauty, travel, and health, especially now that I don't feel as passionate writing just about those three things. But that's all in the past now. Anyway, that's it for now. See you in my posts!

  1. We have the same setup. The tv is connected to a cpu. Pero meron Netflix. Ok na din because we get to watch the shows at our own pace/time

    1. Ang saya kapag naka-connect sa tv ang computer. Si hubby din ang nagset up, clueless ako sa ganyan. haha.

      Super nice ng setup, kapag may free time, movie and series marathon kami as bonding. Di na din kami nanonood ng movies sa theaters. Tipid na din πŸ™‚

  2. We also don’t have cable anymore. We usually watch local TV shows, and as for American TV series and movies, we can watch it online naman. So I think it’s a good way of saving money na rin. Sa ngayon naman mapapanood na rin lahat sa internet, plus netflix andyan naman. πŸ™‚ Hope to hear from you soon!

    1. Hi Airish! Good thing talaga that shows are available online na. Hindi na gaanong necessity ang cable pag mahilig manood ng shows. And yeah tipid din sa movies and sa cable connection. We can just wait for the shows online. πŸ™‚
      Thanks for dropping by!
