I would rather go without television. I use the internet for communication, news and shopping, but above all else I use it for research. I love to research, not only for my Hub topics, but also for general knowledge.
Actually, I basically am without television. I don't have cable or satellite. I use the TV only for watching movies. However, most of the television shows or movies I have watched lately have been online (YouTube, Hulu or Netflix). But if it was a choice of going absolutely without any kind of video media or going without the internet, I would definitely hold onto the internet.
