Yes, TV Is FREE!

This subject is something that my husband and I have been talking about for a few weeks now.  And I never thought to blog about it until today.  Did you know that you can get network TV for free?  Well you can.  Crazy, huh?  This is something that I think a lot of us forget about.  We have had cable and satellite dishes for so long, that it boggles the mind to think that you really don't have to pay for it.  

As some of you may know, about six months ago my family moved in with my sister.  Now, we do get payed channels in the living room, my husband and I do not get any channels in our bedroom.  At night when we snuggle into bed together, we would watch movies or TV on DVD.  This was always fine with me.  Over the past five or so years, I have stopped watching daytime TV and the shows that I did watch in the evening were only one or two a night.  I don't watch much TV.  

But, having TV was so important.  It was just something that I figured we needed.  How can I live without it?  Well, the past six months proved that we could live without it.  Now, other than Nick Jr, we usually don't watch TV in the living room.  There were a few shows that would get recorded and we would watch, but we spent the entire summer, not really watching anything at all.  

A few months ago, I found a couple of websites along with the network sites, that you can go and watch full episodes on the internet.  I was so excited.  I was able to catch up on some of the shows that I missed and this new fall season, was able to watch some new shows.  My husband enjoyed this also.  He always enjoyed being able to come home after work and sit and watch some TV and unwind.  

Well, even better.  My husband was going through some boxes that we had in the garage and found a pair or rabbit ears.  He brought them inside and hooked them up to our TV.  Holy crap! We have network TV, about 56 channels, and we don't have to pay for them. They are FREE, because network TV is FREE!!  And because it is a digital signal, the channels are clear as day.  It is insane.  As much as I didn't really miss having TV, I really do enjoy watching the shows that I like on the day that they are aired.  

On a funny note.  My husband was so proud of what he had done, that he went to work and was talking to a few coworkers about it.  Some of the younger guys he works with were amazed and surprised that you don't have to pay for TV.  We thought this was funny.  It is so normal to a lot of people to pay for cable that not a lot of people know that you really don't have to.

So, until next time my friends.
