Well looky here!

The NY Times has a short article talking about cutting the cord. No, not about my blog; about what my blog is about. Living life without cable. I like that the survey they talk about used Netflix as a focal point. It’s so true. A lot of what we watch involves Netflix’s watch instantly content. I always look forward to finding new content and refreshing our queue with new things to watch.

Check it out. “When the Diffusion Group surveyed Netflix members in 2010, they found that 16 percent of customers were planning to downgrade or cancel their cable television service.” It’s now 2011. Imagine what that number has jumped to! We originally cut the cord for economic reasons. And we still keep it that way for pretty much the same reason – we save a lot! But we also realized we don’t need cable. Channel flipping is a huge waste of time. We definitely love picking one thing at a time and watching it. The discussion goes something like “what do you want to watch tonight?” “Let’s do a movie” or “Want to continue watching Parenthood?” We’re not tied to a broadcast schedule.

As a Librarian I make it my goal to know as much as I can about all sorts of media. I consume more books, movies, TV, and music than is healthy for a normal person. Add in a good amount of MMORPG gaming and you have the perfect recipe for me. I enjoy doing all of this with my husband in our theater style basement
