As much as I can... I mostly just channel-surf, but now and then I find something worthwhile. I love the History Channel. I lived for almost two years w/o cable. The new digital broadcast TV is actually decent in some areas. You can get up to 20 channels for free in metro areas. Its mostly network tv so you don't miss the popular stuff,(CSI, Idol, Daytime soaps and talk shows) As for movies, DVD's rock.
