Although, honestly, I don't watch TV. Just anime. And since I don't get anything other than internet here (no cable, no landline... well, technically we have a landline now that we're on slower DSL (stupid companies made it look like it'd be cheaper. But it's not. And there's a 200 KB/s download limit that I keep hitting, which annoys me. Although 50 KB/s upload is better than 30~ but I digress), but said landline isn't plugged into anything).

Besides, not going to pay extra for cable/Satellite tv that I would never watch. And there's no TV in the apartment anyways...
