Judging from my other comments which I made, I don't particularly care about the lack of TV, since I think 99% of it is junk anyway these days. I remember when TV was free in that there were no monthly access costs. 1 Now folks are willing to pay by the month for their TV fix. On my limited budget and means, the cost of depreciating the cost of a set added to the cost of cable or sattelite access just comes out to being too much for me.
1 Sure, one could have sent in a pledge to their local PBS station on a purely honors basis, but that was never enforced to the extent that, say, the BBC does in UK by monitoring the channel one's teevee was tuned to.
