Closed on my house in March, and just now getting internet at the house. Going without TV was easy, as you said, most stuff on is garbage not worth watching. I can count on one hand how many movies i've watched at my house, and less than half of those were watched to completion.
Netflix isn't too shabby, cheap enough as well. Two lone trips to the store to rent a 1 dollar movie and i've spent more than the month's price for netflix in fuel.
