I grew up without any kind of Cable or Satellite TV. I only had the standard channels that could be picked up by an antenna. I know you probably find this shocking, but I assure you I was not abused in any other way. This lack of cable continued on through most of my life, with the only exception being a year in an apartment that included basic cable as part of the monthly rent. A few years ago, my wife and I built a house and realized that we could no longer pick up television stations with only rabbit ear antennas. This was before the digital conversion and was due to the fact that we now lived in a somewhat rural area. We decided at that point to do a combo deal. When we got our internet set up, we went ahead and had them lump in a Satellite TV plan as well. We then had Satellite Television for a little over a year before deciding recently to get rid of it.
Below, I am providing a detailed listing all of my personal accomplishments during the year+ that I had Satellite Television.
1. Watched a lot of Television
