Advertisements Yeah, between the networks and Netflix we have plenty of TV watching. I think my wife would categorize TV as "unimportant" while I would say "moderately important." We're certainly not as harcore as several TC members -- we didn't have 3-way conflicts or more than 11 SP's between the two of us. In competitve timeslots it's painless to kick shows to the curb. We already made the decision that we could wait for the HBO/FX/etc shows to come out on DVD (although I'm already getting the shakes about missing BSG). For ESPN/sports I'll use my savings from dropping D* to go to sports bars or buddies' houses. I guess the question boils down to "Is the ability to Timeshift and set up Season Passes worth $30.55 a month?" At least with the current set up we can still pause and play the "catch up to live" game. I almost wish TiVo would come out with an S3 "lite" for OTA-only, no need for cablecards and a cheaper service plan since you only need guide data for a tiny fraction of the channels.
