Wednesdays Question

question It’s Wednesday so that means it’s question time. It’s time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We’d all like that.

Here’s this weeks question: If you have television how many channels do you have? All or most of them or little to none?

Hubby and I have basic television, and we have to negotiate the price each year. It will go from a reasonable price to about $60.00 more per month and hubby will have to call to get it back down. When it goes up again, hubby is going to cancel television. We’ll just have Netflix and Amazon Prime. It’s pretty much all we watch.

    LOL. We just had this conversation on facebook. We ony get whatever 20 or so channels we can get with that digital converter antenna thingy and we also have Netflix and Amazon Prime.

    The only thing I miss about having the big $$ DirecTV service is the DVR so I could record my favorite shows since I go to bed waaaay before anything comes on.

    One of the shows we watched on Netflix that we both like is Madam Secretary. I just saw on their Facebook page that the Season 2 premiere is on Sunday Oct 4th @ 8pm. I wrote it on my calendar. I am going to try like nobody's business to stay awake for that!

    We'll see how that works out. LOL.

    Have yourself a lovey day, hon. big hugs xoxo

    When the last TV went, we cancelled cable and don't bother any more. The only TV in the house is the one Sweetie watches DVDs on, and we have Netflix and that's more than enough for the rest of the family.

    We don't have Netflix or a DVR for that matter. We have the smallest Dish package, which is still a hundred channels, mostly because my husband and boys love their ESPN.

    I just have 3 or 4 channels since I live in the country and also I have the free TV deal. I just got Netflix and am excited about having that. Sandee, you and Zane have a grand day.

    AT&T Uverse200. There are supposed to be 200 channels, but several of them are state sponsered travel ads and info-mercial loops. Football season is here so ESPN, ESPN2, & 3, NFL network, as well as games on CBS,ABC, FOX Sports, Fox Sports Southwest. Not a huge fan of most movies nor adult language, so HBO is out nor do I think I would make much use of Netflix. Velocity Channel for car stuff then the History Channel and Smithsonian Channel for some really cool stuff. That's most of the channels that keep us entertained.

    My hubby was a sports nut so we had them all. Nothing got watched much though except sports. Here my oldest son and his wife like Netflix so they use that…they have all the channels though. When we transition to our own place again, I'll have minimal if any. The kids and I don't watch much TV (though the youngest does like Nick Jr)

      Television isn't all that great of an idea. We limit how much time we spend watching television and it's not much. When we're at the boat it's television free. We have it, but we don't watch it. 🙂

    All I have are the regular channels. I've never received those other channels that cost money. Every year I get new stories to watch. I'm very satisfied with what I watch.

    Have a very satisfying Wednesday Sandee. See ya.

    I have cable and about 140 channels. I only watch about six of them but the basic cable lineup doesn't include the ones I want. Ticks me off that we can't pick pick and choose.

    • Comedy Plus says:

      We went for years without television, and then switched to AT&T and the deal was just too good to pass up. Then the negotiation stuff happens each year. We don't like that aspect. 🙂

    We have cable with tons of channels. I couldn't even begin to tell you how many. I like the interaction between the remote and the DVR. I can set it to record programs days in advance and watch them when I want.

    My daughters prefer Hulu and Netflix, but they don't watch TV news so they don't really care. The gather all their information from the internet.

    I'm one of those people that has the TV on all day and sometimes all night, so I find cable very conducive to my lifestyle.

  11. Linda says:

    I have cable and to be honest I am not sure how many channels, but I guess around 30. I like having the choice because today there is so much garbage on TV. I love the Food network, Slice Channel and OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) and find that I watch shows on those channels frequently. 🙂

  12. BeadedTail says:

    We have cable with lots of channels mainly because of the sports for my hubby. I don't know how much it is because it's bundled with our cable internet and together they are $112/mo but that's only because we called to bring it down from $150/mo. It's ridiculous! I need the fast internet for work though so we're stuck.

    Happy Wednesday Sandee! Smooches to Little Bit!

    We have dish network and I think we have the 120 channel package. Wade likes it for the sirius satellite radio channels. The worst part is that there are all those channels and it's still possible to flip through every one of them and not find anything worth watching.

  14. Tony McGurk says:

    We only have the public free to air tv. I'm not sure how many as they keep adding more & I've lost count. At a guess I'd say about 10 or 12. We watch more stuff online now than on TV.

  15. Binky says:

    Lots of channels but increasing less that I want to watch. Pointless reality shows have taken over Discovery channel and History channel and many others that used to be good.

  16. Kathe W. says:

    my goodness you got a lot of answers! whew! We have one of those satellite companies as we have zero coverage here and R loves some sports programs like bicycling races, rugby and motogp. We like PBS, Discovery and that's about it.Me? Love Netflix. Have a lovely evening!

  17. Rocks says:

    We do have a television but we do not subscribe to paid channels, we only have those free ones and that is very few 🙂 It's okay with us because we rarely watch tv programs.
