I don't use cable anymore and haven't for a couple of years. Television is horrible anyway so there's nothing I ever want to watch. I can get on Netflix through my laptop hooked up to the television. My in laws have a subscription so we just use their login and watch for free. I don't really like HULU but there are other services online we have used for free. There's a good selection of shows on Netflix and you don't have to wait for the show to come on at a certain time like with cable. You can watch it whenever and wherever. I love it but I wish they would expand their inventory. Sometimes I search for a movie or show that they SHOULD have, but don't. Netflix can be kind of stingy with what they offer.
