Well, I've got my cable TV back, so I'm feeling like a kid again watching it for the first time. I commented to the cable guy that, if I sound overly excited, it's because I grew up during the Golden Age of television. My father brought our first set home when I was only 6 years old. It was a big square monstrosity that sat on a turntable and had rabbit ears on top. But boy, did we love that thing! So in all these years, I haven't lost my fascination with television, and it's thrilling to watch in high definition what were once blurry images at best. I got the same cable guy who was here three weeks ago to hook up my internet, and he's real chatty. So he was here almost 3 hours. But it was worth it. I have a few things to do before settling in tonight to catch up on all that I've missed these last few years, not the least of which is my beloved Turner Classic Movies!

I get Netflix on my TV set via my bluray player @Raelove the trick is to have either a roku or bluray player that allows you to funnel it. Of course, Netflix does cost a monthly fee of approx $9 a month or more if you also get the DVDs. You can subscribe online.

Yes, TCM and AMC. Love those channel. They have Movies and Me-TV now and so many movie channels. I do love my digital cable. I have internet, cable and phone through the same company. Always have been happy with them. I have probably had cable for 15 years or so. Had it off and on before that too. I remember when we first got cable here. Back in the 70's. They come a long way. Enjoy!

Whoops, almost didn't recognize who you were since you changed your photo. I have had to live without cable before, it's not fun. I really enjoy watching TV. Especially things like Law and Order, Forensic Files, I (Almost) Got Away with It, and Cops.

As I told someone else, I have no idea how to use those services. People make it sound easy, but I know it involves either a wireless connection to a computer or some other device that receives those signals. I don't have any of that, so I prefer cable. It's hassle-free for me.

Good on you. It is good that you will get so much enjoyment out of it. I remember the first time I saw a colour television. It was the day they landed on the moon. It was amazing I stood their watching it with my jaw on the floor. I had to be pushed out of the house. I ran home like a demented excited kid and could not wait to tell my parents.
