I think I'm weird because I'd rather pay for cable than for hulu/netflix or any of that. I know a lot of people go that way, but we watch enough network, cable, and sports (at least during football season) in "real time" to make it worth it for us.

Free! has really turned out to be excellent. At first I was just excited because, yay, a series featuring cute boys. But it's actually very good.

Well, if we could afford it, we'd probably still have cable. That being said, we have discovered quite a lot of shows that we would have never watched without hulu or netflix. But I totally understand it's not something everyone would want to do. :)

Watching stuff as it's on has appealed less and less to me over time. There is some satisfaction of watching something live but I never know what to do with myself during commercials anymore since I used to dvr so many of my shows anyway and just fast forward through them, lol.

I'll definitely look at the rest of Free! in the near future. :)

I've seen a lot of people go that route for financial or just convenience reasons, and it's getting to be that watching TV traditionally isn't really a thing anymore, but, well, I still like to sit down from 7 to 10 and flip around and see what there is to see.

They're different viewing experiences and I guess there's things to be said about both, pros and cons. I don't really like one over the other, I just don't have a choice right now LOL. :)
