I guess I was so shaken up that I really had turned in my DVR that I didn't give you the whole story. I've been mentally preparing to cut the cable for years. The last TV I bought, a Vizio, is a smart TV. It picks up Wifi and has a bunch of plug outlets in the back of the TV for more things than I know how to work. Still its taken me three years to actually cut the cord.
I do subscribe to Netflix streaming and I also get movies on Amazon with my Prime subscription. Now Amazon has a few movies that Netflix doesn't (and vice versa) but my preference has always been for Netflix.
However, I recently bought an Amazon Fire Stick on a great sale. The Fire Stick makes using Amazon user friendly which was part of the reason I preferred Netflix. Now that I have the stick I get why. Amazon really wants you to buy the Fire Stick and then you get a screen that becomes user friendly, similar to Netflix.
Last night I watched 3/4ths of Twin Peaks. I had forgotten how good Kyle MacLachlan was. In fact I've really forgotten the whole program. I'm sure I watched it back when but it's like new because I've forgotten so much.
So even though I cut the cord, I am not without TV. I haven't even begun to explore Hulu which is also on my TV or the TV channels that you can get on your computer. My grandson watches Big Brother on his phone the day after it airs so maybe I can get the few TV favorites I have like that - but computer not cell.
I've also got a list of sites you can sign up for at a decent price if I can find where I saved it on Pinterest. If I remember correctly, it had one for BBC. I do love the British programs. I'm guessing I can get PBS on my computer if I can't figure out how to get it on the TV.
Oh my goodness. A whole new world I've been forced to discover just because Cable wants me to pay for 350 channels of which I only watched 5. Well I guess I showed them or will we find out they showed me? Time will tell.
