Say A Big Bye-Bye to The Cable Company
I Left the Cable Company With No Regrets
Like many others, I planned for years to quit cable, but never seemed to get around to it. Then, when other regular expenses got bumped up, I reevaluated my need for cable television channels.
I was into politics, and thought I was thriving on my favorite 24-hr cable news shows. Evening meant a hefty dose of commentary from some outstanding newscasters.
The only thing about this was that one day I had realized that I already had strong opinions that matched those TV favorites.
Although I seriously enjoyed their personalities, and their styles, I would often do the three-hours of viewing or listening, only to feel keyed-up and exhausted at the same time.
But I couldn't imagine life without those three best friends, and all their compatriots. I thought back a few years, prior to expanding my cable service, when I was offered a good deal. Back then I got my news primarily from newspapers and radio.
It became evident that there was no need for me to listen to or watch my favorites, day after day, but as long as cable was available, who was I to quit cold turkey!
Then I found the Leaf!

I Found The Leaf Indoor HDTV Antenna
This close-up shows how discrete this antenna is. With my high definition TV looking sleek and smart, I didn't want to clutter up my room. The Leaf is small, and lightweight as a sheet of laminated paper.
Leaf's Black Side
For my light colored walls I prefer the white Leaf. For darker walls, simply flip the antenna over, so the black side displays.

Cable TV is the only way to be really informed. I like it best.
