PBS is great!!

PBS is great!!
Lost my job on August 1 and got rid of cable to save money.  Now, we've been watching PBS (mainly, PBS Kids) and it is great!!!  One example is Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood:

Home | Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood | PBS KIDS

Now, as far as my 600 kbps (via our Verizon smarphones, as we got rid of Vonage, also) Internet, that's not so great, but, with multiple browser tabs, I am learning to live with that, also!
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

Yeah, cable is expensive. Which is why we got rid of it.

However, Netflix and Hulu are cheap. And having both is still less expensive than cable.

We have Netflix and Amazon Prime; both work just fine OTA, especially, on our Wii U, which helps reduce the bandwidth to a decent SD experience.

Good for you. Cable is garbage anyway. And PBS really is great!

RE: PBS is great!!
In making this transition in life (having had cable for 20 years straight), I was surprised to learn that a lot of PBS shows are offered on Amazon Prime via streaming!  PBS has definitively come a long way over the years.

And, also, Martha Stewart is still on the air.

Have been seriously thinking of cutting the cord, too. 

Any baseball or hockey games I want are on Reddit.

Daniel Tiger is great, my son loves it. I still bring out classic Mr Rogers Neighborhood for him from time to time (thanks YouTube pirates!) and he loves it almost as much. During one episode they covered how balloons are made (used to by now I’m sure) and he went nuts for it.
