As soon as they unveiled the new uniforms, the team received requests from over 40 players to change their number to 80085.

My only issue with this is I really don't see the value in the stuff MS has that Sony doesn't. I mean, give me Netflix and Hulu Plus, and I'm a happy camper! I don't NEED the other content deals MS has. Read more

I know this article is a few weeks old but i'm basically staring at the Time Warner order screen and saying if i get an HD DVR and HBO plus good internet it's $150+ a month if not more. I can just get do what you did and survive. The key is if my wife can survive...

I have cable, but only the Broadcast Basic package, which means we only get the broadcast stations, and a couple of cable channels. It costs around $25/month. Read more

Seriously, try channel surfing on a weekend morning. It's nothing but children's programming (not cartoons), pundit shows (Meet the Press etc...) and informercials. You're paying for that garbage. Read more

The UI on TiVo actually isn't as bad. I too took about 4 years off from cable. I decided to plug back in and the only way I'm still using it is with TiVo. Sometimes I think I'll cut the cord again, but the serendipity of the live feed of cable is actually kind of fun. Read more

Live sports are the main reason I need cable. I can't watch sports on a computer, and the internet is never completely smooth and skip-free (if I were to hook it up to a TV). I was reminded of this on this past Saturday as I sat down for a day of English Premier League on the HDTV.

You should seriously consider building an HTPC with a tv tuner setup. I have a Windows Media Center setup I built with a Ceton Infinitv 4 card and it's completely changed my relationship with cable altogether. For starters, you don't have to pay to rent a DVR box you hate. You pay about $3 a month for a cablecard Read more

4 years in, cutting cable was the best thing I ever did for my life. If I want entertainment, I actively have to seek it online via netflicks, various legal streaming sites, 'other' sources, etc. But I have to manually go out there, perhaps wait awhlie and then I get to watch something. Usually I have a nice Read more

I got cable back recently too when I moved in with my fiance. We hardly watch it, and mostly still watch Netflix etc... It's hard to go back to watching commercials all the time, and not being able to pause or watch episodes in order.

Over the weekend, I plugged my Vizio Co-Star back in on a whim. I'd got it for Christmas, used it for about a week, and promptly put it up. However, the software updates (which took about 90 minutes for me to install) have greatly improved the product. Read more

I remember reading your post about re-subscribing and knew you'd regret it. I cancelled mine too. Total crap. I'd rather spend the $100 /mo on a vacation. Read more

I've been without cable for several years now. The only reason I'd even consider it is because of all the great iPad apps that give full access to all their shows and episodes if you log in with your cable info. No more channel surfing, I just pick what I want to watch. Read more

First things first, get an app for you cable provider on your os of choice. If your service provider doesn't have an app, then yeah you screwed up. I'm a Directv customer, and their app is crazy useful, but I've used the xfinity app and can safely say that it's equally awesome. Beyond providing a much better guide, Read more

Cable boxes seem to be getting worse rather than better. My first DVR was from Dish Network and it was awesome. That was years ago. You'd think the technology would have improved but, no. I had to downgrade to Comcast and their DVRs are the pits. They sometimes don't record your shows. Series recordings Read more
