Cable TV is great. I find it hilarious that people think streaming and downloading their shows is better than watching shows from your sofa in Full High Def.
Cable TV is a huge waste of money.
My 50" Plasma screen, an Apple TV that wirelessly syncs to my iTunes library, and a Netflix account, and I've got more options than I could ever watch. If I really wanted the current shows, I could always connect an HDMI cable from my Mac to the Plasma.
