Death of Analog Television and Its Benefits

Since my wife and I decided not to go digital -- or to get cable-- we no longer have the "boob" tube to occupy my time (my wife hasn't watched t.v. in years).

So, now I've subscribed to Ellery Queen and Harper's and plan to read more novels and write some more!

p.s. It's actually difficult to break the t.v. habit, but I'm going to give it a year and see how it goes.

Well, after about three weeks, I purchased a box (Roku) which lets me store movies off of Netflix and watch them on my t.v. anytime I want (theoretically!). My wife reads so much in the living room that I can't really watch too much, so I'm reading plenty nowadays.

The only time it's been an issue for me (so far) has been when I was sick. If I'm home ill, I'm usually too weak/uncomfortable to read and would normally veg in front of the tv. Hulu seems to work okay in a pinch.

We still have some background noise because my wife enjoys listening to NPR. But, only when she's not reading. Something that she does quite often. I wonder what it's going to be like when I don't even know what the t.v. shows are?

It's worth breaking the habit. We haven't had cable in years, don't have satellite, and only watch shows that we've picked up on DVD. The only time we watch regular TV is when we're at someone else's house. It's amazing how much quieter it is around here than when the TV was on, constantly providing background noise.
