After a series of escalating bills and shitty service, I finally told the cable company, Satan’s subsidiary, to suck my left one today when I turned in my DVR for good. I cut the cord and it feels damn good. I only watch 4 channels anyway (albeit obsessively), so what’s the point in paying for 995 others? Yes, there will be sacrifices – the most painful among them letting go of my daily dose of Wendy Williams. Virtually everything else I watch is available online anyway. Roku. Chromecast. There are numerous options for leveraging the internet into your main television content provider. Speaking of watching online, you know Downton Abbey’s currently airing in the U.K.? The premiere episode was a doozy. Edith deserves a good finger-wagging.
