Thread Name: BS: No Telly?
Subject: RE: BS: No Telly?
I have an old portable hooked up to a video and DVD player, but otherwise have mostly been broadcast telly free for at least 35 years. I have tried having a TV occasionally, but found that I watched it so rarely that I tended to forget about, and therefore miss those few things I thought I might like to watch. Never have had cable service. When we bought this house an old console television was left behind and we watched it a little bit. However, our son was so mesmerized we dumped it before he was two years old.

When I think about it, I lost interest in watching TV when I left home to go to college, and have never really gotten that interest back.
