My wife and I decided to drop our premium cable service and are sorry we didn't do it sooner. We are saving $100 a month and haven't had to change our viewing habits. The kids still get their favorite shows on PBS or Netflix and I get ESPN on my Xbox 360. Why don't more people do this?

That's really smart. I think one of the reasons a lot of people don't do this is they like to be able to view the latest episode of Mad Men on the day it premieres, instead of waiting the extra few months so they won't be "spoiled".
