I cut the cable TV cord back in college when I lived with four other males in a house where the thermostat’s agreed-upon winter setting never rose above 60 degrees, even when it was below 20 degrees outside. In a house where you don’t pay for comfort-level heating, you definitely don’t pay for cable.
Since that time, I’ve never looked back. If I could make it then, when I actually had time to kill watching TV, I figured I could make it without cable for life. Here’s how I managed to do it!
